When Heidi’s photography-mad aunt first placed a camera in her hands as a student at Queensland College of Art, little did she realise that she was being gifted with a lifelong passion. Since those first tentative shots she has gone on to become a professional graphic designer, and developed a keen interested in photography on the side.
While her graphic design career keeps her mainly behind the desk, in her spare time she also does freelance photography. She has photographed weddings, births, events, portraits, and ventured across our glorious country photographing landscapes in Victoria, Queensland, Northern Territory. These also included the aftermath of the 2009 Victorian Bushfires. In December 2011 Heidi explored her European heritage with eight glorious weeks of eating, drinking and picture taking across the other side of the world.
In 2009 she held her first solo photography exhibition “A moment in my time” at Hanasho Gallery in Brisbane’s West End. Subsequently her work has been included in fundraising exhibitions, including “Art for Heart’s Sake!” for the Variety Club Queensland, and “KIZUNA” – Art exhibition for the Japan earthquake and tsunami victims.
In January 2011 Heidi found herself caught up in the middle of Queensland’s biggest natural disaster in 35 years. For two weeks she ventured around the streets of her local Brisbane suburbs photographing and documenting the floods during both the event itself and the recovery stage afterwards. These photos are now part of the Heritage Collection, John Oxley Library -State Library of Queensland, and appear online as part of the National Library of Australia Trove Project and the Collections Australia.
Heidi’s flood photos have also been published in ‘The River: A History of Brisbane’ book and are also featured in a permanent installation about the Brisbane River by the Museum of Brisbane; ‘Social Media in times of crisis’ symposium hosted by the State Library of Qld; material for the Healthy Waterways Network, Moreton Bay Journal, and the Australian Medical Association Qld – “Doctor Q” magazine.
