I engaged Kathie to photograph our property in Olinda in February and was delighted with her work. Kathie has a great eye for nature and a wealth of knowledge of the plant and animal life around the Dandenongs. She captured our garden from unique angles no one has done before. Walking through our property with Kathie was a learning experience in itself as she helped me identify a number of birds, and I picked up some birdwatching techniques too. The resulting photo album was nothing short of breathtaking, and I plan to engage Kathie again in spring to capture the garden in its full glory. Read more

Kathie visited our two acre property in Beaconsfield on two occasions. The quality of the photos were wonderful and bright.
Frequently Asked Questions
What experience, skills, qualifications or training do you have to make you the right person for the job?
I am both a passionate gardener and photographer and love sharing the joys of a garden with other. Likewise I love watching nature and capturing what I see and sharing it with others. I have a Diploma in Professional Photography but believe that the real learning comes from experience and constant practice.
How do you normally charge for your service?
A garden shoot is usually around $275.00 - one hour at your garden and time to prepare the photos for delivery. Images can be provided in digital or print format.
Is there a particular aspect of your trade or industry that you specialise in?
Gardens, wildlife, birdlife, landscapes, waterscapes - things of nature. I also do sports events such as mountain biking and bike races, the Puffing Billy race, and equestrian events. Requests for other sporting events more than welcome. I primarily service the Melbourne eastern region, with a special focus on the Dandenong Ranges, Yarra Valley and surrounding areas.
What do you like most about your job?
I love seeing other people's gardens and sharing their passion for it.
How did you decide to get into your line of work?
Natural progression. I've always enjoyed taking photos for most of my life and the love of gardening has grown over the years. Putting the two together seemed a natural thing to do.
Further, my husband is a keen mountain biker and has been racing for some years. I used to take photos of just him and his team but progressed to photographing all participants in events.
What are the typical things that you need to know before you can provide a quote to a customer?
Location, lighting - are there tall trees preventing sunlight from entering the area? Also how to access the location, i.e. steep driveways, dirt or gravel roads, pets, etc.
Are you an insured business and do you guarantee your work?
I have public liability insurance to protect clients and myself during my work activities as a photographer and also at markets.
