About Wendy Philip

Hi I'm Wendy,

I live in the South of South Australia and I come from the South Island of New Zealand.
This summer has seen many trips to the beautiful beaches of South Australia and today I am posting some photographs I have taken along the way. Yorke Peninsula is our most frequented place. Surf boards are waxed and wet suits put on... the rest is history.
So back to my story....
I was brought up on an isolated farm next to the most beautiful town of Kaikoura, New Zealand, where the beautiful mountains, fall steeply into a rugged and pristine coastline. I believe this outstanding landscape shaped my passion for life and photography. I now reside in South Australia, a complete contrast with its dramatic and harsh beauty.
South Australia offers incredible opportunities for the photographer, I never tire of any part of this state. From isolated blue beaches (like I have never seen before) to red, hot and dusty plains. So much variety, colour and contrast!
My images are all set at A3 size, however 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.
