Susan was born in Whyalla and grew up in Adelaide, South Australia. She has always had an interest in photography. Experimenting during a high school workshop later led to Susan undertaking an SLR and darkroom processing course and her passion then started to develop around working and travel. In 2008, during an 18 month working holiday in the UK, Susan attended a photo tour in South France, led by Fine art photographer Jonathan Chritchley. She switched her new digital camera to manual and a new journey began.
Susan has so far travelled to over 10 countries and 3 continents to explore and create her style. She has worked as an assistant on a 3 day shoot in Voiles de St Tropez and achieved a High Distinction in a 12 week photography course through the open university of Australia.
In 2011, Susan won a third prize in an international competition with corporate communications agency Berghind Joseph
. In October 2012, Susan was a feature profile in The Australian Photography + Digital magazine
Susan continues to explore her local area, along the South West coast of England and is planning a number of local shoots as well as a return trip to Africa in 2013. She continues to work towards her dream of becoming a professional landscape photographer.
