I have been doing photography professionally for seven years and I am self-taught. I have always had an interest in bushwalking, mountain climbing and exploring the escarpment and have been doing so since I was very young. I specialise in Australian landscape photography, with a major focus on the Illawarra. I was already planning bushwalking and photography lessons on the Illawarra escarpment. Alex saw one of my photos from Sublime Point that I had posted on Facebook, with a bit of information about some of the hiking adventures I do to get the photographs I take. He then gave me a call to have a chat about it, we met up and realised we both had very similar plans and that both of our businesses could work well together to offer something unique to the Illawarra. On our bushwalks we photograph the sweeping views of the Illawarra from many of the great lookouts along the track.

Waterfalls, rainforest scenes with cabbage tree palms and tree ferns, Gymea lilies in the forest, native flora and whatever else our customers find interesting. I teach them how to compose a shot, how to shoot in different weather conditions and times of the day, how to use manual camera settings, including aperture, ISO, shutter speed, and I run through all the options in the camera’s menu. Sublime Point Cafe is in an amazing location with one of the best views in the Illawarra. We offer a restaurant style of food on the bushwalk as part of the package … Alex is a very good business operator and is very passionate about Sublime Point and the local area … between us we have developed many plans and ideas to expand the concept. Illawarra Trekking Adventures has two walks on Saturdays and Sundays: Austinmer Ladder Track ($80pp, depart 6am) and Sublime Views Track ($99pp, 11am). Contact: Chilby Photography, 0425 308 433,; Sublime Point Restaurant & Cafe, 4267 1855, 2515 Sublime combo… food, photography and views over the Illawarra.
