I'm Jade, nature and documentary photographer based in Deloraine in the beautiful north of Tasmania.
I have a passion for photography, and a love for tea. Sometimes there's nothing better than a good book and a hot cup of tea, or a trip up the mountain with a hot thermos.
I strive for simplicity in this busy world.
I love mountains and all the things growing on them.
I'm a nature nut; I'm happiest when surrounded by trees, breathing in the forest air.
My love for photography began in the red-hued darkroom of Launceston College, about 20 years ago. In later years I took a bit of a detour from photography and completed a Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood Education at UTAS. Life however, led me back to photography and I now work as a freelance nature and documentary photographer capturing events, families and weddings and providing content for articles and websites. See my Recent Work.
I'm currently working on a 365 day project based in Kooparoona Niara in Northern Tasmania. I am attempting to put my love for this place into an image a day.
I also provide images for a monthly short walks column in the Meander Valley Gazette with friend and writer Tara Ulbrich.
If you like my approach, drop me a line and we'll chat.
Jade’s work has been published in The Examiner, Meander Valley Gazette, Friends of the Great Western Tiers (FOGWT) and Tasmanian Living magazine.
Nic and I had the pleasure of working with Jade for our wedding in April. Her calm and professional manner helped both on the day and leading up to the day. She captured the fun moments and the special moments - we couldn't have asked for any more. Her communication was incredible and the albums and USB with all our photos presented beautifully. We can't thank her enough for all she did to help make our wedding day as special as it was!

Jade has photographed my family on a couple of occasions in her signature documentary style. The many beautiful priceless moments she has captured brings tears to my eyes 💜 It is such a pleasure to have her sweet gentle presence and her unobtrusive camera accompany us for the day. We treasure all the moments in time that she has recorded. Jade and her art are such a treasure to us and the whole community. We are so grateful that she shares her talent, passion and skills with us all.
Jade has done amazing work with the Winter Ball photography...and she is really easy to work with, and responsive to customer quirks and preferences. I can't imagine anyone better to immortalise your special event - truly beautiful pictures and a calm sweet presence that will make your day go more smoothly.
Jade's photography shows an intimacy with the Tasmanian wilderness that is only attainable by those with a rare gift of insight coupled with a deep respect for all that this unique environment is. When viewing her photography I am often left with the impression that there is something to be seen or experienced, deeper within the photograph.
