Well this is me, Bindi Nalder (nee Holzwart) – the face behind Bindi Taneal Photography.
A few fun facts about me:
I am a wife and mother (we have three beautiful children - I am so blessed!)
I have only ever lived within a 35km radius of Emerald, Central Queensland.
We live just out of Emerald on a small block, with our two dogs and one cat. We have a few cows but they live on my parent's place.
My family have both Charolais and Angus cattle studs, and my father-in-law is a grain farmer. They are all located here at Emerald, and I visit the farms regularly, which is where I take a lot of my photos.
I love plants, reading and country music. Oh and I love the rain.
Sunset is my favourite time of the day.
I love the wide open spaces and getting out to explore (and photograph) it when I can.
ABOUT MY PHOTOGRAPHY
One of my all time favourite photos, taken with my Olympus E-520.
As a teenager, I always had my trusty little point & shoot Kodak camera in my hand. Mostly I took photos of my friends and family, our farm and our pets.
For Christmas 2008, my Dad and Mum bought me my first DSLR – an Olympus E-520 – and that’s where my love of photography really took off.
After getting my Olympus, I was taking so many photos and not doing anything with them – they were just taking up room on the computer. So I decided to start sharing them. At first I was just sharing my photos with family and friends and it has gradually grown to where it is today.
Bindi Taneal Photography came to life in late 2010.
Now, I mainly use my Nikon D750 and my favourite lens is my Nikkor 70-200mm f2.8 lens. I also have a DJI Mavic Pro 2 drone and I love seeing the world from that different point of view. Photography is my happy place and helps me fill my cup.
As shown in my Gallery, my passion for photography lies in Rural Living & Landscapes (where my heart is) and Sunsets (my favourite time of the day). I also enjoy taking photos of Animals, Seascapes (when I get the chance to visit the beach) and People (including formal shoots and families).
