About Wendy Philip

Hi, I'm Wendy,
Thanks for stopping by to read my profile. When I discovered photography "I found what I was looking for...." Peace and a spiritual landscape amidst the storms of life. My hope is that your experience may be similar as you view my work.

I live in the South of South Australia and I come from the South Island of New Zealand.
I was brought up on an isolated farm next to the most beautiful town of Kaikoura, New Zealand, where the spectacular mountains, fall steeply into a rugged and pristine coastline. I believe this outstanding landscape shaped my passion for life and photography.

Living in South Australia, I find it fascinating and am discovering more about this state daily. It offers incredible opportunities for the photographer, I never tire of any part, from isolated blue beaches (like I have never seen before) to red, hot and dusty plains. So much variety, colour and contrast!

My work.. I love simplicity and soft colours. I am also a fan of black and white photography and think this timeless look is appealing on any wall in your home. I often desaturate my colours and prefer to shoot the vastness of a landscape as opposed to still life, people and objects.
Although my images are all set at A3 size, I am happy to print off any image in a size which suits.

Influences

My adventure into blogging and photography began in 2009, I take inspiration from everything, everywhere, anytime and anyway I can!

My first professional camera was a Nikon D5100, I now have a Nikon D800E.

I enjoy the works and have been greatly influenced by these photographers:
Nicholas Bell
Russ Barnes
Kara Rosenlund.
Oleg Oprisco
Patty Maher

My photography tends to be minimalist, showing the heart of humanity and the lonely journey we each must take to find peace, joy and fulfilment.
