"Nature Photojournalism Features"
"Taming Wild Flowers"
A story for Australian House & Garden magazine showcasing Australia’s native flora and how they are exceptional in dried flower arrangements.
"A Harbour Bridge Painter"
I got special permission to be on top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge to photograph one of its legends, the harbour bridge painter. Published in K-zone magazine in 2000.
"Tasmanias Siste Fugle-Fangere"
Muttonbirders were both aboriginal and white people who had practiced a rare way of life since before colonisation. My story was syndicated numerous times around the world, including this one in Norway’s Vi Menn magazine in 1990.
"Big Nest, Big Troubles"
A story about the industrious mallee fowl was done in gruelling conditions in western New South Wales. This version was published in International Wildlife (USA) in July 1999.
...and has also produced books, tours, workshops, and presentations
David Lindenmayer is a notable forest ecologist and I’ve been able to work with him on several book projects. This one on Booderee National Park required me to make several trips over 10 years to cover the affects of a major bush fire in 2004.
Workshops? Have I done workshops! Over the years I’ve been asked by national parks, tourism retreats, camera retailers, environmental organisations, as well initiating my own series.
The life of a wildlife photographer seems to fascinate many people so my projects get plenty of coverage, whether local newspapers, radio, broadcast TV or international magazines.
What clients have said...
“Fantastic having enormous number of them. So many that are useful – just fantastic. Very exciting to see them all. So many shots to be using and refreshing what I had. Exactly what I needed.”
Peter O’Malley, Communications and Education Officer, Hawkesbury-Nepean Catchment Management Authority
“Someone in the office came in today raving about some gorgeous imagery they saw associated with Melbourne Water and tall euc forests….and that we just have to get that photographer to do some work with us in our remote/gorgeous areas of the catchment which we call “Special Areas” and are off limits to the world. The photographer turns out to be you of course.”
Peter O’Malley, Senior Publications Officer, Sydney Catchment Authority
I couldn’t believe when you said you weren’t a writer; your stuff’s great; feel like our own little coup having you on board. Esther, I love your stories, they are absolutely beautiful; I can’t wait to put them in the magazine….the pictures are incredible.”

Awards and Achievements
I don’t enter photography or art prizes so any award I get is always a big surprise. One of the most important “prizes” for me was getting into the world-renowned publication “Inner Reflections” which showcases only the best nature photographers. One of my photos was the first they published which had been digitally enhanced in post production.
The mystery and awe of Australia’s wildlife and natural environment are captured in artworks that are realistic and yet some are wildly expressionistic at the same time. Crafted with the finest materials, the prints will endure for decades in your home or office.
I personally oversee that the prints are made to the highest archival standards. This makes them extremely age resistant. They are beautifully reproduced on Canson Infinity Arches Aquarelle cotton rag. This genuine watercolour paper has a unique surface texture…
