Some people know me from my Insta-stories catchphrase ‘Good morning, beautiful people!’ on my daily Instagram posts…..I am out shooting sunrise most days, as it is the most peaceful and quiet meditational time of day for me, listening to the ocean’s gentle roar, and watching a new day begin afresh.

My friends call me Von. I love to share my passion of photography with others, both by teaching, or by sharing landscapes from wherever I find myself travelling to – seven continents so far, and my ‘to go’ travel list is never empty! I like to shoot portraits as well, particularly in the surf or on the beach (luckily, I live in paradise).

I started photography a bit later in life than some, and once I learned how to use manual settings there was no turning back. I’m fascinated with dilapidated old jetties, sticks in water, and stick trees in a minimalistic setting for long exposures.

Holding regular Instameets around my home, the Sunshine Coast in Australia, and other locations in Queensland, teaching group and private photography workshops is what I do. Stay tuned for upcoming photography tours!
