Some people are lucky enough to find their passion very early in life. Others come to it later, and through a process of slow discovery. But once they do, they are the most ardent students of their chosen passion, and are relentless in their desire to learn, improve and grow.
This is certainly true of Cheryl. After discovering her interest in photography in 2003, Cheryl immersed herself in the field. She pursued an admirably broad approach, learning in workshops and lessons provided by luminaries of the field including Ken Duncan, Peter Coulson, Steve Rutherford, Peter Eastway and David Oliver.
When she realised her true passion lay in art photography, Cheryl embarked on a Masters of Contemporary Art. Her passion for taking unique portraits of people, especially women, was well served by this study, which eventually led her to meeting Kira.
Their relationship has grown from a simple Facebook friendship, to one of photographer and subject and now, as joint educators to as many photographers as they can reach through their innovative and self-paced online photography courses.
With a particular interest in Photoshop and post-production techniques, Cheryl can help you learn how to take your photographs and turn them into your own works of contemporary art.
