Greetings Blogstalkers! I know what you’re thinking – you’re not Amanda, where is Amanda, what have you done with Amanda? Amanda is on sabbatical and has taken a strong fascination with the after-life and is now a part-time paranormal investigator AKA a ghost hunter.

Greetings Blogstalkers! I know what you’re thinking – you’re not Amanda, where is Amanda, what have you done with Amanda? Amanda is on sabbatical and has taken a strong fascination with the after-life and is now a part-time paranormal investigator AKA a ghost hunter. Ya heard it first here folks. Jokes – she’s sitting beside me slaving over a hot monitor making your digital dreams come true, of course! So…allow me to introduce myself, I’m Katie, associate photographer & protégé. I’m here to blog about the bloggy side of all things photographic and sometimes nonsensical… Let me give you a quick insight by answering the all-important ‘w’ questions. Who/what?! Etc…

Born in the form of a lil vegemite from Skippy land down under, but now, fully Irishified complete with an insatiable hunger for potatoes and pints. Growing up in the boglands it wasn’t long before I bid farewell to my four-legged friends and welcomed the bright lights of the city! Sometimes though, in the dead of the night, I do miss the sweet smell of manure (by sweet I mean putrid) and I weep for a time that once was…Yeah… So after a stint in the city & a degree in the back pocket I hit our aviation highways for some good ole fashioned adventurin’. For me, hop-scotching this big bad world with my camera in tow, documenting a whole spectrum of people and places outside of what I know – I’m in my element. The most memorable travelling moments are usually characterised by the people you meet. From those with acute weirdness to the point it’s bordering illness, the rude and downright ignorant, to the wildly hilarious and exciting, to the wise, inspiring and kindred; the whole mish mash. Unfortunately though I discovered a direct cause and effect correlation between passport stamps and my bank balance so… I was homeward bound.

Now, having escaped this rainy recession for over three years I was expecting butter rations and bah humbugs all round. However, spirits are high and… (Insert motivational quote here) so… Yeeee hawww everybody!

I’ve been lucky enough to land an amazing opportunity with Amanda (I don’t need to sing her praises you all know how great she is!) I’m currently metamorphosising into ‘The Sponge’ and that’s where it gets interesting for you my soon-to-be-friends. I hope to provide sneaky snippets into the making of Wilcher’s photographs…from technicalities to technique to other tantalising treasures (note: not just exclusive to ‘t’ words). So, photo fiends, watch this space!

Coming up next time…. hear about the trials and tribulations of my shoot with Amanda! (I got whiplash…)

Cheers, Blogstalkers!
