Karen was bitten by the Shutterbug in 2002 and has been happily photographing ever since.
She holds the photographic honour of A.A.P.S with the Australian Photographic Society for her work submitted into National and International Photographic Salons.
She is self taught having had no formal photographic education. Being and active member of both the Pakenham Camera Club and Australian Photographic Society has assisted her journey to continually grow and to stretch herself to the next level as a photographer.
Karen has earned the respect from her peers with invitations to judge photographic competitions at a National level.
Over the years Karen has photographed a varied and wide range of different subjects, however her passion lays primarily in photographing people whether it be an informal / environmental portrait or in a photojournalistic/ social documentary style. She also finds pleasure in photographing the hidden treasures found in everyday life anything from a fallen autumn leaf resting on a park bench through to the rugged dirty hands of a steam train fireman. There are amazing photos everywhere if you open your eyes and learn to see.
Wayne was bitten by a dog back in the 70's. Fortunately it hasn't affected his ability to take a photograph. The only honour he has was being promoted from C grade to A grade in the Pakenham Camera Club. (He was in B grade for about 10 minutes...)
He has learnt most things by copying Karen or watching You Tube videos. He is also a member of the Pakenham Camera Club and the Australian Photographic Society. He continues to grow but probably would stop growing if he ate less and exercised. Stretching is something that doesn't appeal to him though...
Wayne doesn't get or deserve respect. He is hardly invited to anything...
Over the years Wayne has also photographed a wide variety of subjects but his passion is concert photography. This has enabled him to combine his love of music and his love of photography. Wayne is still be trying to get the perfect photograph but probably never will...
