    Hi from West Australia

    A dear photographer friend of mine (Australian living in Dubai) recommended I view Cheryl Jacobs website, (who has become one of my favourite portrait photographers) and Cheryl's site led me here. It's great to see a forum that entertains and educates at the same time - and I still have soooo much to learn.

    I live in West Australia and last year took up photography photos after many years of believing art was a waste of time (my father had a big influence on this). I feel so relieved after finally breaking free from past influences - just a shame it took around 15 years of 'hanging around' not knowing what I wanted to do before I bit the bullet and took up my passion.

    'People Photography' interests me the most. People of all ages and at all stages in life. The good and the bad times, the fun and the sad times.

    I look forward to meeting some/most/all of you throughout this journey.

    Greetings from Down Under
    Kind regards,
    Nicole

    Welcome Nicole. I think you find this place a wealth of knowledge and inspiration. By the way - Art is never a waste of time.

    Hi everyone, thank you all for such a warm welcome. I'm hooked on this site and can't seem to have enough hours in the day to catch up on 'all' the info passed on over the recent weeks/months.... What a fantastic bunch!

    Welcome, Nicole. I'm new here too, and photograph kids, mostly my own, at the moment. There is a wealth of information here, and a lot of good work in the galleries. It's inspiring, and it'll get you thinking about good photography! I'm looking forward to seeing your work in the galleries too.

    Welcome to APUG Nicole. A better site for traditional photography couldn't be found and Cheryl's photos are a delight to view. Enjoy your visits here.

    Both your photographs are wonderful: intimate, warm and very sensitive.

    It will be a pleasure to have you around
