How I Got Started – After being gifted a fabulous SLR camera in my late teens and playing around with it until it broke during a trip to the United States, I gave my hobby away for many years until I renewed my interest in photography again in April 2008. Despite NOT having highly professional equipment and only limited experience, my results were good enough to get attention in various places. Back then, my work was seen on advertising brochures, newspapers, other websites, real estate billboards and even local television.
NEW Professional Photography Equipment – My pictures received so much attention that in May 2009 I purchased one of the best cameras on the market, the new Canon 5D mark 2 along with some of the very best lenses that Canon makes. The level of Commercial Photography work I was asked to do grew rapidly, thanks to all my supportive clients, people finding me through random internet searches and a very strong FACEBOOK presence.
I’ve always been able to adapt quickly into any field I choose to master, but I only ever do the work that I really love to do. That means, when I focus on a task, I give it my heart and soul. ~ ER

Web Design – I spend endless hours keeping up with new technology. I’m in just as much bliss compiling a simple $500 portfolio site, building a $3000 professional website or constructing an extravagant $25,000 online shop. I thrive on the creation process and love putting my skills to good use.
“Hi Elizabeth, you are being praised for the fantastic website. We are receiving numerous comments how great it looks and how easy to find things. It is certainly providing the results intended. We are receiving orders like we have never seen before, instant purchasing! If you were close by we would take you out for dinner, it will wait until you come over one day, serious!” – Peter and Maureen Byl (Organature)
Professional Photography – I’ve now sold photos to several government agencies, newspapers, Handmade In Melbourne Magazine and shot a cover and inside story for HIA Builders Magazine. I still use my full framed Canon 5D mark 2 and a nice range of luxury series lenses. I adore product, website and portrait photography the most. My clients are incredibly happy and keep coming back for more.
Book Publishing – I’ve self published 6 of my own books. I only use publishing houses that print on demand so there’s no upfront cost to produce and ship your product. E-Books in all formats (kindle, iphone, ipad etc) are included. I know what to do and let you relax as much as you want during the entire process.
Website Building Classes – I teach individuals and group classes on the Gold Coast of Australia and also provide further support via email or phone. Written and video tutorials are also available freely on Build Your Own Website to help you on your way.
I’m also skilled with Photoshop, Social Media Setup, running Google Advertising Campaigns, writing snappy articles and inspirational coaching.
