I'm Madeline, and I love to spend time on an adventure waiting for the right photographic moment to emerge. I am an available light photographer, using the light that is around me day or night.
When I am not at home in Melbourne working in Digital Asset Management, branding and as a photography producer/art director, I travel the world, working on photography projects and hunting down old neglected cameras to add to my growing collection.
I learned photography by hand, developing negatives and prints in a darkroom in the late 1990s and completed a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Art Photography and Graphic Arts and a Master of Arts.
I now work with both digital and film depending on what medium will work best and suit the location I am in (sometimes I'm shooting both at the same location).
My current go-to equipment is an Olympus OMD-EM1 kit for my digital needs, and for film, an Olympus OM-1n, a Bronica Zenza S2, and a 4x5 Wista large format field camera.
I enjoy teaching people about film photography and sharing my passion for this photographic medium.
