This book is a compilation of photographs taken in Ulladulla on the south coast of NSW between 2007 and 2009.
During my 20 years working as a photographer I have always loved to photograph people.
So I shot beautiful women in stylish clothes for fashion catalogs, Hula dancers in traditional costumes for calendars, wedding couples with flowers in their hair on the beach in Hawai'i, fearless surfers on huge waves and wealthy business people on their world travels.
In Ulladulla I have been shooting images of newborn babies and young families.
The newborns are like tiny dewdrops,the symbol of new beginning,and with each one, we can only imagine the endless possibilities ahead of them.I hope you enjoy this pictorial collection of young locals.
One of the highlights of my work is meeting families from all parts of the community. Like Rachael Martin, who came to my studio with her kids and also her late brother's children. I was very touched to hear their story and consequently invited Rachael to write the foreword to this book.
