Growing up in remote coastal towns in Australia's west coast, I have fond memories of wide open lands, golden sun rays and hot white sands leading to crystal clear salty waters. With nothing to do and nowhere to go I would spend hours creating stories in my head of strong heroines saving the day and following their dreams. I let my imagination run wild.
When I found an old film camera, hidden amongst the dust of the traveling boxes my love affair with photography began. A journey of discovery and inspiration I found with this tiny metal box in my hand I could begin to make those stories and characters come to life.
With a career spanning over 15 years Stef's portfolio contains work published globally.
“I have a passion for shooting strong, inspiring female figures in my photography, to conceptualise and shoot images that celebrate the power of believing in ourselves and that beauty comes in many different shapes, sizes and appearances and that beauty can be found anywhere."
In 2017 I was honoured to be asked to create a series of images for The Walt Disney Company. To shoot a series of images celebrating the power of dreaming and helping kids to have the courage and belief to make their big dreams come true. Shot in my home town of Perth Western Australia the series of images and accompanying behind the scenes video was launched on international day of the girl and can be view on my Facebook page.. www.facebook.com/pages/Stef-King-photographer/193599740667820
