Name Patricia Mura Bannwarth
Location New Zealand
My Occupation Nature Photography and Art
My Bio A painter, sculptor and former jeweller, I have always had a passion for photography and nature, buying my first camera with my Christmas money at 9 and upsetting my parents by using a 12-photo roll of negatives in an afternoon taking pictures of a spider. I always had to hold back because of the cost of the film processing. Now nearly 50 years later, with the arrival of the digital era, nothing is holding me back any more and I can finally embrace my passion.
