"Light and words have something in common: they both tell a story. Each person's understanding of that story is unique, a perspective, a vision brought to life by what they see and hear. This website is dedicated to perspectives which I have created for you to interpret, Enjoy"
Capturing Perspectives of Life in Port Stephens
With an eye for the perfect composition and light, Nat captures breathtaking perspectives of Port Stephens images from her local surrounds. Nat draws inspiration from many of the local landmarks and beaches including those in Boat Harbour, Anna Bay, Birubi Beach and at One Mile Beach. She frequents the shores of Box Beach and Shoal Bay in the Tomaree National Park and Little Beach in Nelson Bay.
Photographing Zenith Beach & Tomaree National Park
Zenith Beach, a famous Port Stephens location for landscape photographers, is one where Nat often shoots photos. Tomaree Headland, at the northern tip of Zenith Beach, marks the start of the brand new 20km Tomaree Coastal Walk and is the ideal vantage point for those iconic Port Stephens images. This part of Shoal Bay is situated in the Tomaree National Park and a selfie photo from the summit walk is a must on the 'to do list' for visitors.
Connecting With Nature Through The Camera Lens
By searching for captivating locations at the right time of day, Nat has developed a unique understanding of the Tomaree Peninsula and crafted her own photographic style. Often working with the morning light to capture a stormy sunrise at one of her favourite locations in Fingal Bay, or the last light, for a slow exposure photo over the sand dunes at Birubi Beach.
