Kathie Thomas' Profile

About

Hello, my name is Kathie. A photo of a blue banded bee I took over 2 years ago led me to a path of discovery. I began researching to find out what kind of bee it was. I've actually learnt lots of things since that day and can now name almost every bird in this region and identify it by its call too. Apart from improving my skills in photography I've learnt so much more about the environment in which I live. I explore it constantly and have walked and driven to many places simply for the pleasure of photographing it and get excited when I discover a ‘new' bird or something I'd not seen before.

Q&A:

Apart from improving my skills in photography I've learnt so much more about the environment in which I live.

Q&A:

Who are you and where do you live?
My name is Kathie Thomas and I live in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges in Victoria, Australia with my husband on a 2 acre property. It is indeed a very beautiful place to visit all year round and most photos on my sites have been taken on our property or in areas not that far away. Occasionally we travel interstate or overseas and so you may see other images not native to my area from time to time.

What equipment do you use?
Nikon D90 and related lenses. I've used a variety of cameras over the years. I've enjoyed photography since my teen years but didn't take it up seriously till much later in life.

Are the images here available for sale?
The images on this site are available for purchase in the following formats: digital download, prints (framed, canvas, etc), cards, clothing and other items. Purchased prints will not have watermarks on them.

What about stock photos?
Photos concentrate mainly on the region of Shire of Yarra Ranges, Victoria with occasional other areas added wherever I travel. Digital downloads are available for both personal and commercial use at my site at PhotosbyKathie. If there's something in particular you're looking for, but can't find it, please contact me direct. Please read the conditions for use prior to download purchase.

Do you have product with your images?
Yes, you will find them mostly at my Etsy store but they are showing on other sites. If you are visiting the Dandenong Ranges area you may well come across me at local markets selling items there also.

Are you available for bookings?
Yes, I'm freelance and concentrate mainly on nature and landscape photography. However I have done pet and family photos, weddings, newborns and architecture. I particularly enjoy sports photography, especially mountain biking events. Perhaps you have a particular Australian item you are looking for? Click here to contact me.

Photography has allowed me to capture a moment in time and then explore it in its greatest detail on my computer. It's allowed me to bring home a piece of what I've seen and experienced when out and about in this beautiful country of ours – and other countries when I go travelling. Photography isn't just about taking photos, it's about building experiences and reliving those experiences over and again. I believe that looking through the lens of a camera has brought me much closer to a love and understanding of the nature God has given us. What a gift!

Today my photography focuses on the things of nature, wildlife, birdlife, landscapes, etc but I also do occasional sporting events including rugby, football, horse events and MTB (Mountain Biking) races. The latter because my husband is a mountain biker and has participated in races. I enjoy the challenge of fast-paced action photography.

Note: Kathie believes in capturing images just as nature intended them, without manipulating or changing them in anyway.
