I’m Rhiannon. I am a bit of a goofball human, who doesn’t take life too seriously. I am a 29 year old mother of a Rhodesian Ridgeback named Fletcher, daughter named Indi and son named Nash.
I’m not one of those creatives that was always drawn to the lens. I have always been terrible at documenting my life. I am the last one to have a camera on special occasions, particularly when traveling. I guess I prefer to live in the moment.
Growing up I always wanted to be a performer. I grew up religiously going to the theater and watching films. After several years studying a Bachelors Degree in Drama at University, that dream began to fade away. An elective at University randomly took me to the other side of the camera and I was hooked. I was finally able to reconnect with what I truly drawn towards, emotion. I realised that it was less about being a performer, and more about the emotion in a performance that I was connected to. Feeling something from character, from a visual, and all of the little things that come together to make the emotion in a scene or performance. Behind the lens and the editing desk you have ultimate control of this. So this is what I strive to do.
I don’t really care about the perfect shot. I don’t want to capture overly staged, unnatural moments. I want to capture REAL emotion. I am always trying to squeeze emotion out of my clients and into my work. To me that is what should really be documented.
