Wilomark Music & Imagery, a dream my partner Sean & I have shared for a long time. Let us tell you a little about ourselves. I'll go first;
I love photography and I love people so to bring those two passions together into the one arena, for me is amazing. I recently became an accredited professional photographer with the AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photographers) which is a huge milestone in my development as a photographer. Let me tell you where it all started.
As most people can appreciate, we sometimes find ourselves in jobs that we dread having to go to day after day after day, staring out the window wishing we were somewhere else. I'm so lucky to be able to combine my love of people with my passion for photography, the creative outlet that has kept me sane for many years.
My love of photography really started to develop when Sean & I would go bush walking; exploring all the Australian bush has to offer. Landscape and macro photography was where it all began for me, trying to portray the peace and tranquillity I felt while capturing those images.
As anyone that knows me will attest, I'm a people person, so it has been a natural progression to combine my two passions and the gravitation towards portrait photography the result.
I have a particular passion for capturing the essence of what it means to be a woman. Specialising in contemporary beautiful portraits of women of all ages, I love showing someone that didn't think they were worthy of being photographed, just how beautiful she really is. We are passionate about offering you the best images you have ever had of yourself, and pride ourselves in not only giving you those beautiful images but a fantastic experience during their creation.
Too many times I hear of people not wanting to have photos taken of themselves...why? My arms look big, I'll get some when I lose 10kgs, do you have a skinny lens? This is understandable but shouldn't be a hurdle stopping you. We ask you how you would like to be photographed, pretty simple really, then leave it to us so we can photograph you at your absolute best. Makeup and hair is included in all our elegant portrait packages so all you need to do is bring your favourite clothes.
Everyone should have beautiful photos of themselves, if not for yourself, for your children and grandchildren. Just think, photos are usually the one thing we grab in a disaster, and I am proud to be able to give each and every one of my client families something they will love and cherish for many years to come...when all is said and done, our photographs are sometimes all we have to remember times gone by.
I used to think I didn't want to be pigeon holed into one genre of photography as I am just as passionate about capturing a sleeping newborn as I am the family pet or a bug on a leaf, but as soon as I saw how powerful a beautiful portrait could be on how a woman feels about herself, that's when I was hooked.
For Sean, music has always been apart of his life. He can't remember a day when he hasn't played, written or recorded something. He started recording his own music, and subsequently, other people's music because he was tired of being treated as the next client passing through a churning machine. With no personal connection and what seemed to be no commitment to the music or the artist.
Recording your own material is very personal and most musicians have very firm ideas as to how the end result should be. Sean loves working the mix with artists to bring out the individual sound that they know is part of their music. That is what we do. That is why we are here. Every piece that you create is different, so every project we work on is approached in a different way to achieve the best result within the budget you set for us. From Demos to full releasable songs and albums Sean aims to produce the best quality material for you.
We are both perfectionists, and will continue to practice and evolve our style in our respective crafts as long as we draw breath.
