Wendy Shepherd: Top 30 Under 30 in 2016



My favourite thing to do is go on adventures and tell stories through photos! My favourite place to be is the forest with trees towering over me, near running water, or somewhere with mountains so huge that I feel exceptionally tiny in comparison; there’s nothing like it. I am completely obsessed with the way light can alter the perspective and emotional impact of a photo. I love searching for and capturing moments that wouldn’t necessarily be noticed otherwise.



Tell us what your one must-have piece of gear is and why:

My 35mm f/1.4! It’s a wicked storytelling lens and is super versatile! It forces me to shift my perspective constantly.


Tell us what your one must-have piece of software is and why:

Photo Mechanic! Culling is my nemesis and Photo Mechanic really speeds up the process.


What’s your advice for someone just starting out?

Be inspired by light and emotion and there will be no situation you can’t tackle. Find out what really inspires you and what it is about photography that makes you come alive and brings you joy. It will help shape your vision and come in handy as a helpful push to keep going when you feel stuck!
