Featured Photographer: Sonia M Photography

15 February 2014

Born in the Slovak Republic in Central Europe, I moved to the UK when I was 19 years old and lived there until I was 24, before finally living the dream and together with my partner relocating to Australia in 2009. I was eager to travel and explore the country, I was stunned by the charm and beauty of it. It did not take me long before finding my interest in photography and I begun to explore and learn the new possibilities and creative ways of the digital photography world.

Driven by my passion I have developed a love for photographing landscapes and nature. I am mostly self-taught, but the biggest chunk of my photography knowledge I learned thanks to my partner Steve, who was a keen photographer before I found my interest in it. After countless early mornings, plenty of trial and error and viewing a lot of inspirational photography from my fellow landscape photographers I developed my own style or as they say ” I trained my eye” over the next 3 years. Living in the Sutherland Shire, I definitely feel like the South Coast is very close to my heart. Photography is something I love to do, share and inspire others with. Photography helped me expand my creative skills, took me around the world and made me see the beauty in many things.
