Who am I?

Hello. My name is Michelle.

The first time I picked up a camera was my parent's Kodak VR35 and the first photo that I was proud of taking was an angel gravestone in the East Perth Cemetery (Western Australia) - I still have a print of that photo and the negative! Most of the time I just took photos of still subjects that intrigued me. Now and then I would also take photos of my friends and our little adventures, only to be reprimanded by my parents later when the film was developed and majority of them would be blurry. I continued my love for capturing images in high school where I learned to shoot with a Pentax 35mm SLR and developed my own BW film photos in the darkroom, which I still do.

Today I'm slinging around Canon DSLRs while capturing landscapes and people on my travels around the world. My work has been featured on National Geographic, Canon Singapore as a featured female photographer and also in Canon Australia's 2015 Yearbook. My camera has led me to explore different places and to find unique perspectives. Not only do I capture what I see, but I also learn a lot from the lives that I encounter. These are the adventures I hope to share with you through my lens.

When I'm not out getting lost in the world I can be found back in my hometown of Perth, WA, running Digital Photography workshops for all ages and of all skill levels. If you're interested in improving your photography and getting unique photos of your travels or even moments spent with family and friends feel free to contact me via michelle@michemedia.com.
