Olivia is in her third and final year of study at Curtin University. She has chosen to major in Photography and minor in Creative Advertising and Graphic Design. Olivia has been passionate about the art of photography since she was young and pushed her point and shoot camera to its limits. Her mother gifted her a DSLR and a macro lens at 13, which further ignited her passion for the art. Olivia took every opportunity available to her by photographing the events of family and friends, but still wanted to learn more and eventually make a career out of this practice. This led her to her enrolling to study at Curtin University, where she works tirelessly to improve the quality of her work. Olivia sold her first photographic prints in 2020 and was further inspired to create a larger body of work and to gain more exposure in the field of photography. Olivia is interested in every step taken to create a photograph, from shooting to editing to printing. She loves every genre of photography, such as taking macro photographs, shooting portraits of people over a large age range, and even dabbling in product photography
