Although I started working in a darkroom when I was 7 years old and have gone through a range of techniques and styles to match the developments in photography, I still regard myself as always learning.
My main focus these days is on pipe organ photography, but I enjoy landscapes, patterns and symmetry, experimenting with different styles - you name it, almost anything is fun to explore. Pipe organs are especially fascinating since no two in the world are alike, and the craftsmanship and beauty of so many of them is truly thrilling and awe-inspiring. Whether the pipes are far away up in a loft, or more accessible on either side of a nave or chancel, the techniques which builders have employed for centuries to cope with the limitations of space, time and money to build these fantastic instruments is always of considerable awe to the onlooker. If you have never thought much about them, stop and look next time you are in a church or cathedral with a large organ.
Since I live in one of the most beautiful countries in the world, New Zealand, I am fortunate to have glorious landscapes right on my doorstep; I have yet to capture a scene that I'm happy with, but it's fun trying. Luckily I get to wander around the globe with my concert organist husband Martin a lot so there's plenty of variety to play with. I have a Canon Eos 7D but don't care much for the paraphernalia of bags of lenses - two give me enough trouble as it is.
