Sallyanne Cousans: Commercial Photographer
Photographer Work Description
I am a Western Australian-based freelance photographer specialising in nature and wildlife.
Photography has been, and still is, a lifelong passion: I love the challenges of mastering light, lens and landscape.
I cover a range of other subjects, including environmental, people and historical towns and buildings.
In 2009 I established a small photo agency whereby I help other photographers to get their images out into the market.
From these photographers I have many more images available, not only from Australia but from other places too - Africa, Iceland, Great Britain and many others.
