Anthaea is a fully accredited member of the AIPP - Australian Institute of Professional Photography. She is based in Beachmere and covers the local Moreton Bay, Sunshine Coast and Brisbane areas.
"For as long as I can remember life has been abundant with Family, Friends and much loved Pets.
The celebration and exploration of these relationships - and the 'circle of life' of each - defines my photographic specialty.
Observing the natural moments in everyday and capturing, through a series of stills, the diverse threads of age, character, relationship, emotions and role in life, in stills is how I portray life's stories.
Life is truly beautiful and I strive for each of my images to share and celebrate this - no matter how BIG, known or tiny the subject of my focus is."
Anthaea’s sensitivity is striking and palpable - whether it’s sensitivity to feelings, culture, the environment she is working in, or her sense of composition.
Having enjoyed a variety of people focussed roles - from ‘walking about the clouds’ as a Flight Attendant, operating a number of 5 Star Hotels along Australia’s East Coast to working as an Executive Assistant - Anthaea has spent endless hours observing the human spirit while serving and nurturing people of all ages and different walks of life.
Born in the highlands of Papua New Guinea, growing up on Thursday Island and completing school in outback Queensland, together with her working experiences, has provided Anthaea with the perfect credentials to ensure any subject feels completely at ease.
Photographing people comes naturally whether she’s sharing in the wonder of your new born baby, playing with children or engaging with the Executive Team of a large corporation, Anthaea is comfortable.
However, it doesn’t stop with people. Anthaea also has a penchant for animals of all size and breed. She has an ability to portray everyday moments as cherished keepsakes. To capture the beauty of the life’s special times and turn them into treasured family possessions.
