About Catherine

I started exploring Light Painting when looking at ways of expanding my photography skills in 2016 with a set of sparklers and a tripod.

Since my obsession has grown.

I now have a dedicated “kit” that overflows out of a large box of tricks that includes a range of tools, light emitting devices and home made contraptions that I use for making my light painting art.

When I post these shots on social media my inbox in flooded with messages from professional and amateur photographers and my friends asking me to teach them.

In response, I have developed these 2-hour Workshops where you can capture your own range of light paintings. The venue of the workshops will change each month but will remain within Cairns.

I hope that you will be able to join me and other photographers looking to learn about the art of Light Paining Photography.
