Hi, I'm Nycola, I've had a passion for photography for about 25 years. In this time I studied, graduated and worked in a whole other profession (feel free to ask me about it, when you meet me). A few years ago, I embarked on this dream of turning my passion into a profession. I studied photography full time and set about starting my own photography business, creating engaging images that draw you in, and provoke emotion and connection to the image.
So why the name Alpenglow...
Alpenglow is an optical phenomenon that appears at dawn or dusk. It appears as a reddish glow near the horizon, opposite of where the sun is either rising or setting. This glow is reflected on mountains (like our stunning Snowy Mountains), buildings or wet sand on the beach. This is where I see it most as I walk with my camera in hand, Kelpie by my side and family off exploring the dunes, at sunset on our stunning Queensland Beaches. Photography literally means the art / science of painting images with light. Love this! "All things become visible when they are exposed by the light, for it is light that makes everything visible.” Ephesians 5:13.
I hope you enjoy exploring my images, here in my portfolio. If you love what you see, contact me, to chat about how I can create engaging images of your property (without the weird fake skies), or capture & create unique memories of your special event or family (no fake smiles & awkward poses, just fun and laughter).
