BIO

Sharon Hobbs_Self Portrait WEBSITE.jpg

Capturing ‘life in the moment’ is what inspires me. In my photography you will see landscapes, travel, architecture, people and their furry friends and all the little details that make up each unique life. I shoot with a Canon 5D Mk IV and my favourite lens is a 50mm f/1.2L. 

 

I have been drawn to the creative world most of my life having studied interior design before embracing art and through art finding my passion for photography.  I studied under Brisbane photographer and teacher Anne Russell, an accredited judge for the Photographic Society of Queensland.  

 

My photography is influenced by natural light, colour and textures. My eye is drawn to the beauty and colours of Australian and New Zealand country life and coastlines, urbanscapes, layered interiors, nature, pets and people. My photography style continues to evolve and I am currently developing my style in minimalist and contemporary imagery and documentary storytelling. 

 

I have had success as a finalist in a number of competitions and was recently awarded ‘Highly Commended’ in the Documentary and Single Shot categories of Australasia’s Top Emerging Photographers 2020, a 'Highly Commended' in Capture Magazine's 2021 Mono Awards and more recently I received a Top 40 award from more than 3k entries in the Australian Photography Magazine's 'Photographer of the Year' competition in 2021 for my landscape series 'Fire and Rain'.
