Complicated person, loyal to family and friends, inspired by God's creation, enjoys good food & wine - especially, cheese & chocolate, reads a lot, raising 2 beautiful daughters in Canberra with my highschool sweetheart. Spent the first half of my life in different parts of Queensland.

I've always been interested in photography, first used an old Pentax 1000 when I was about 11 and loved it ever since. Mostly I take photos of nature and landscapes when shooting for myself, and shoot weddings, formals, graduations, family shoots, portraiture, & pets for my business, Pink Thistle Photography

    "Rachel was one of the first contacts I made on Flickr and I am still amazed by her photos. She has that knack of making the ordinary things we see everyday appear magical (that cup of tea looks so inviting!) and is able to spot a photo opportunity where I would walk on by.

    Rachel has always had the eye for a good photo and over time I've seen her skills and the quality of her art progress at an unbelievable rate. I always look forward to seeing her latest images in 'My Contacts'."

    "What Rachael can achieve with a camera is amazing. Her macro shots are always surprising. I have had the honour of watching Rachael's growth over the past year and daily she manages to take my breath away.

    Rachael's love of nature shows through in her photos and brings out a different apprecation of the world around me. To see the beauty that GOD has created for us.

    I love how she captures her personality in her 365 challenge and enjoy learningn something new about her each and everyday. I am blessed to call her a friend.

    Thank you Rachael xo"

    "As a young protographer, coupled with a basic digital camera, Pink Thistle's enthusiasm, creativity, and ability to capture exceedingly wonderful photos is an encouragement to all. Her keen eye to see things differently takes us beyond the limitations of our own restrictions. Thanks Pink Thistle for sharing your wit and enthusiasm with us. All the best as you continue to explore and expand your horizons."
