Hello, and welcome to our web site. This About Us page is here just to give you an idea of who we are and why we have decided to build this web site. Our names are Neil and Karen Rendell and we have lived in Western Australia all of our lives. We would live nowhere else.
We love the climate (most of the time) and the friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Typical of Western Australia as it is in most of Australia.
We originally lived in the small country town of Corrigin. We spent the first 15 years of our married life there. then we moved to the city for our daughter Lisa’s education. Now we have retired and live in Busselton in the South West of the state.
We have three grand children; Jemma, Ryan and Tyler who are all adults now and doing their own thing. It is great to see them growing up into young adults and enjoying life.
I have always had a love of photography, but never had the time or equipment to enjoy it. With a lot of encouragement from Karen I recently “bit the bullet” and purchased a good quality digital camera. So now I have no excuse but to indulge in the two things I really enjoy. Photography and our beautiful South West corner of Western Australia.
My favourite genre is landscape photography but I also like to try my hand at flower and bird photography. This particular website I will reserve for my panoramic photos and my other website, www.neilrendell.com will have other photos that may be of interest.
Living close to places such as Meelup Beach and Castle Rock is very handy. Not too far away is Margaret River and further south is Augusta on the south west coast. Cape Leeuwin is very close to Augusta and is a very good tourist attraction as well as a great place for photography.
Busselton is a tourists haven and is popular during the school holidays and the summer months. The Busselton Jetty is one of the most visited tourist attractions in the South West and is only about a 3 hour drive from Perth.
My Camera Equipment
I am a self taught photographer, and find that I am always learning and trying new things. I mainly focus on landscape photography and love to travel throughout the South West. My main camera is a Cannon 80D and I also use a Cannon 70D for close up shots of flowers. These cameras may not be the best cameras around, but they do a good enough job for me at this time.
Drone photography is something I will also be doing since purchasing a DJI Phantom 4 pro drone. So my site will eventually have videos displayed as well as still shots. This may take a little time to establish but it will eventually get done.
You can contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions that I can hopefully answer. I hope you enjoy this site, and please contact me if you have any comments, or even advise for a budding photographer.
