Photo of the month

‘Although I’ve lived and worked in the city for more than six years, Melbourne is so full of contrasts that I never tire of photographing it. Tree-lined streets, beautiful architecture, bluestone laneways and prolific street art mean an ever-changing kaleidoscope of subjects to choose from.

The distinct seasons we experience are one of the great things about taking interesting photos. Melbourne looks beautiful in all her moods. After the cool winter months, nothing compares to walking along the Yarra River and enjoying the summer sunshine, and the changing colours of the sky as the sun goes down.

My top tip for photography is to choose a subject that you find inspiring and try capturing it at different times of the day, and in all weather. The light makes such a big difference, so take advantage of the long summer twilights we are blessed with in this wonderful city.’
