Hi , I am a passionate photographer, I would consider my photography as “Licorice all sorts” with loving many different genres, from beautiful landscapes to raw grit to portraits and action shots.

2011 I studied Cert iv in photoimaging at Nambour tafe Qld,which is a full-time course over 12 months, where we learnt an overload of information and experiences in many forms of photography, I can certainly recommend this course to anyone who is considering pursuing photography as a career.

Currently I am living and working in the outback Australia on a huge cattle station,aprox 3,000,000 acres.The closest shop is a 4 hours drive (oh and what Id give for a hair cut).  I am cooking and photographing this amazing and unique area.

I Love the life out here and the vast landscape, the people are real and the stars at night and the sunsets are amazing. A place that everyone should visit and appreciate what Australia has to offer.

I am leaving here on the 25/9/2013 and heading to Sydney where I am holding an exhibition for the month of October . Then I am on a journey to???? no idea, Have camera will travel.

  1. Thanks for visiting peppersproutpress.com and liking my post on crunchy granola! Your photos are gorgeous, glad I dropped by. 🙂 Keep up the great work!

  2. Thank you very much for the like. Seriously, to get a like from someone who takes such amazing photos is very encouraging. I’m going to take my time and go through your photos and absorb each one. Respect. Terry

  3. Hi. Thanks for the ‘like’ on my post of pix from the Vivitar Ultra Wide. It’d be good if you added something about your photo gear to your ‘About’, or even tech details on each pic (especially on your other blog). Australia looks a great place for a photographer to be.

    • Hi I dont own a lot of camera equipment, and Ive never though about adding technical details but could be a good idea, thanks for stopping by and the feed back. Austarlia is a great place and Im in a place where not many Aussies go.
      thanks for the ideas, do you think it would be helpful to people ???
      cheers Callie
      Have a great day

      • I think it would be! I love knowing what lenses/camera bodies someone used. It’s also nice to hear a brief rundown on processing. That being said, I don’t do any of that on my blog 😉
        Great photos – thanks for letting me live vicariously through your art!

      • I will start putting info on one of my sites,hopefully it might help people just learning to use their DSLR cameras.Thank you so much for your feed back I really appreciate it.
        Cheers Callie

    • Thanks very much, I will stay till the end of the year and collect as many images as I can get, as I am having an exhibition in Sydney to show “out back life style” and raise money for the flying doctors a very worthy cause.
      cheers Callie

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog. By viewing your photography I can experience a little bit of the Outback without ever having to leave Northern California.

  5. Callie, thanks for visiting my blog.. so glad to have found yours and your fabulous photography.
    I too have studied photography at tafe but included in a fine arts cert 4. As you say a great hands on way to learn!

  6. This is amazing!!! I have been looking for your blog for such a long time. When I say your blog, I mean your location, situation and a photographer too. I just know I am going to love following this blog. You now have a very frequent visitor. thank you 🙂

    • thank you, its an amazing location and huge. I love the isolation and remoteness because of life simplistic ways, I feel like Im living a century ago.The country has its own rare and rugged beauty, and the people are real and resilient.
      cheers Callie

    • thank you so much,it is an amazing place and a unique experience and I love the isolation.
      I am missing the beach at the moment and when I get back there I miss the red sand from out here.
      cheers Callie

      cheers have a great day Callie

  10. Callie, thanks ever so much for liking my post today on Tide Line Still Life. Your work from the outback is quite remarkable, and I look forward to what you share with us from future travels. Best, Maggie

  11. hi callie,

    good to know you. thank you for dropping by and liking my recent post.
    i am really intrigued by your intro, living out in the remote outback and photographing it.
    hope to see some of them night sky and sunset as you described some day.

    have a good weekend ahead.

    best regards,

  12. Wow, when I read your ‘About’ page and you mentioned 3 million acres, I thought, “wait, what? Is that like a whole State? I guess there must be a whole lot of wide open space over there. I haven’t been to Australia yet, but we’ve talked about it. Of course it’s pretty far and we’d want to have lots of time to see your big, beautiful country. I do visit with a couple of other gals in your part of the world. I have to say, “you have the best sense of humour”. We traveled through Europe in 2008 with a number of Australians and enjoyed their company immensely. Your wit and ability to tell a great story had everyone on the trip wanting to dine with the Aussies. Thanks for stopping at my blog and for following, I look forward to your posts as well. 😀

    • Thank you so much for your comments and following my blog. The station where I was living isn’t the biggest in Australia but is up there. A place where you need to know where you are going as mobile phones and navigation satellites don’t work out there and you always carry ample water just incase you break down or get lost, people that dont take care out there die.It is a harsh rugged place but I love it, and love the people No Bullshit, just true honest Aussies with big hearts.
      cheers Callie

  13. Thank you so much for popping by my own humble blog and giving a like to my latest post Seaside Pastel, it is really appreciated. As you can see mine really is a jumbled up lot – call mine a Dolly Mixture next to your Liquorice Allsorts. Glad you popped by so I could discover your blog, what tasty Allsorts they are. Good luck and I like what you are doing in photography and life…MM 🍀
