For photographer Tiffany Warner, there’s no place like the Macedon Ranges to hone her craft.
“My family and I left the Macedon Ranges for Queensland in 2010, and we lived there for nine years before coming back,” Ms Warner said.
“We didn’t even think of living somewhere else when we moved back to Victoria, it’s just so beautiful here.
“In terms of photography it was completely opposite, from the sunshine and the beaches to all-green forest landscapes and so many native animals.”
“I just love nature here more than anywhere else. The abundance of wildlife is fantastic, I carry the camera on me every day.”
As the founder of Tiffany Warner Photography, Ms Warner likes to infuse the region’s landscape into her work.
After her love for photography first developed in high school, she decided to boost her skills by enrolling in a diploma of photography while living in Queensland.
Ms Warner has since worked as an accredited photographer at the 2018 Commonwealth Games, but said her favourite places to shoot are all close to her home in Mount Macedon.
“I always love Honour Avenue no matter what time of year, and the Macedon Regional Park and Sanatorium Lake,” she said.
“During COVID-19 lockdown I had so much in my five-kilometre radius, that’s just the beauty of the Macedon Ranges.
“I like to take groups on photography walks. I take people of all skill-levels, from those learning basic camera skills to those more experienced, and teach them new skills.”
Ms Warner’s classes include a social media photography course, landscape walking tour and a how-to guide for using DSLR cameras.
