Imagine if you had the ability to freeze time? Once we are gone, photos are all we have left.

Hi, I’m Nell! This is my little slice of the internet where I share my colourful and creative photography with you.

I have had a love affair with photography since I was a little girl. I believe in fairy tales, real love, magic and happy endings. My passion is to capture your love, your magic and your happily ever after. Welcome to Photos By Nell.

A yearning for exposing the untold through pictures has led to an adventure of storytelling behind the lens. I obtained my Diploma of Photography and Digital Imagery and regularly up-skill through various industry photography and design courses. The world of photography, much like the rest of life, is an ever-changing landscape. As a photographer I find I am always evolving, never settling for where I am now but always striving for perfection.

Mackay has been my home for more than three decades and I have fallen in love with its never-ending photographic opportunity. Living here for most of my life means I know where the light falls at what time, where the hidden photographic backdrops are and how to use sunrise and sunset to my advantage for pure magic. I live on a rural property near Sarina with my husband and three children. As a country girl at heart, you’ll often find me with a cowgirl hat, camera in hand and Ariat’s on to tread through a muddy paddock. I find beauty in the simplicity of nature and know how to bring out the hidden charm of a rustic backdrop.

Whether it’s getting that perfect angle from aerial photography using a drone, shooting a car for sale from the perfect angle, helping restaurants convey taste in an image through perfectly positioned cuisine or something a little sexy for the eyes of your loved one, you’ll get the same level of passion and professionalism from me every time.

“The click of the shutter. A snippet of time which can come and go in the blink of an eye, captured for eternity in a single shot. That feeling of seeing the light bounce off someone’s smile as they are living one of the happiest moments of their life. I just love everything about it. It’s pure. It’s a meditation which completely focuses me in the present moment. It’s searching for the perfect moment, the hidden detail and the immaculate light. It keeps me grounded and incredibly grateful for the life we enjoy in this beautiful place.”

Always Searching For The Shot

Let’s create a timeless experience, so when you fondly flick through your photos years from now, you will instantly be transported back to a time in your life which brought so much joy.

Getting the perfect shot is like freezing a memory in time. My pictures paint thousands of words, by simply linking passion with emotion.

A look, a laugh, a twinkle in the eye; capturing love and laughter through the lens turns moments into cherished memories.

“When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.”
“There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are.”
“Black and white are the colors of photography. They symbolize the alternatives of hope and despair to which mankind is subjected.”
