My Story

Hello and welcome!

My name is Krystal McKinley and i'm a self taught photographer living in Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia. My interest for the outdoors started since the day I could walk so it was no surprise that when I held my very first camera that the outside world would be the place I captured some magic! 

My first camera was a Nikon Coolpix AW100 which was compact and water resistant and became my tool to start my photography journey. Focusing on landscape and wildlife, I knew this hobby would quickly turn into a lifelong passion.

For a couple of years I was living in Townsville, Queensland, Australia and by then I had upgraded to a Nikon D3400. My husband was often away for work so to keep myself entertained I would travel to some beautiful locations that far North Queensland had to offer and that is how my love and passion for travel began, I well and truly caught the travel bug and there was no turning back!

I have been lucky enough to visit incredible oversea destinations and still have so much more to discover in my own country. You can follow my journey here on my website, on Instagram or on Facebook.
