Personal Work

I’ve had the opportunity to put on several solo shows over the last few years, with subjects ranging from editorial portraits to more conceptual-based portraiture work.
When I’m not using my camera to photograph farm weddings in Southwest Australia or other commercial projects, art is my main focus. I t completes me both as a person and as a photographer.
I consider it a little different from my commercial work, as I have no boundaries, no rules.
The key to a successful collaboration with a client is to see through their eyes – anticipate their vision and then express it through the medium of photography. Here, I’m simply expressing myself.

Exhibitions

Over the last few years, i have had several solo shows ranging from editorial portraits to more conceptual based portraiture exhibitions.

When not focusing on commercial work, my art is my main focus. It completes me as a person, and gives me the freedom to express myself. I see it different to the work which I do for other people because I have no boundaries. When being commissioned, i see the job through the client's eyes. I feel that this is key and I try to anticipate what they are imagining, and go on to express it through the medium of photography.

 

 

THE DEFENDERS

19th June - 2nd July 2021 @ the Rabbit Hole Studios, Bridgetown.

The Defenders is a mid-project exhibitions by photographers Victoria Baker and Davina Jogi which juxtaposes formal portraits of local members of the Volunteer Bushfire Brigades with elements of the natural environment. Imagined as a response to the cataclysmic 2019 Australian bushfire season, the intention of the work is to highlight the unseen, ordinary people whose livelihoods, family life, and history are intertwined with the Australian bush and simultaneously to raise questions about our own responsibility towards the environment. The project is supported through a Resilience Grant from Regional Arts WA which funded a 3-month mentorship with award-winning, Australian, photographic artist Aletheia Casey to assist in developing the work.
