Susan MaceWelcome to my website Bluepatch Photography – Photography with PASSION! Stirring emotions in people and bringing the beauty and depth of Tasmanian landscapes into their lives. In my photography, I try to look for something a little different, not the iconic postcard image. There is so much beauty in this world, it’s all around us everywhere!

Photography has been in my blood for most of my life. I started getting serious about 15 years ago, starting off with a Canon EOS 3000 SLR (film camera). I soon became  addicted to the art form and really began to “see” the world around me, through the lens. My main interest has been in the landscape area, but I have also enjoyed photographing flowers and still life images. This art form has rapidly changed since I began with my film camera and now we live in a digital era, which has seen a dramatic change in the world of photography. In 2010 I upgraded to a Nikon D90 DSLR. I continue to add to my lens collection, such as my 105mm macro lens which is wonderful for shooting flowers, wide angle 14-24mm brilliant for landscapes as well as a 50mm which I use for portraits. In 2013 I moved up to a Nikon D7000 DSLR. Currently, I now own a Nikon D610 full frame sensor with 28-300mm zoom lens, and many others including 150-600mm lens.

I have had some success at exhibitions, as well as private sales and recognition in Australian Photography magazine through competitions. As part of the Hobart Rotary Art Show in 2017, I sold an aluminium print which I had taken during a 5 day walk to Lake Oberon in the Western Arthur Ranges of Tasmania. I have also undertaken many wedding shoots over recent years. In 2017 I undertook contract work for the Australian National Construction Review magazine, photographing new buildings in Hobart including Macquarie Wharf, UTAS and Parliament Square. Last year, I was contracted by food delivery company Deliveroo to photograph food at various restaurants around Hobart.

My products and services include standard wedding, portrait, family, pet, landscape, commercial photography, commission work, as well as “Memory Quilts” (photographic images sewn into quilts). I enjoy a variety of photography work including family/pet portrait shoots and various commercial work. In 2017 I was privileged to photograph Anne Steele, who was the first Tasmanian woman to swim the English Channel 10 years ago, training for a swim in Loch Earn, Scotland in September, raising money for Melanoma Tasmania, goal being $10,000.
