Posted by

To kick off our Lei Momi interview series, we'd like to welcome Melbourne-based photographer Christine King to the blog! Author of Christine King, Photography, Travel, Lifestyle Blog, Christine can be found out and about with her Canon exploring the best of Melbourne's attractions, in between snapping glamours like Miranda Kerr, Jennifer Hawkins and Megan Gale. Christine has also photographed her fair share of iconic Aussie music legends like Diesel, Noiseworks, Shannon Noll, The Screaming Jets and The Rogue Traders.

Welcome to the blog, Christine!

1. Tell us a little about yourself including where you live, where you’ve travelled and how you fell in love with photography: I was born and raised in Melbourne, Victoria. I have always had a love for photography ever since I can remember, which was heavily influenced by my father. I also have a strong passion for travel and I've been lucky enough to travel to Bali, Malaysia, Mexico, Thailand, USA and intensively throughout Australia. I have many other destinations that I am planning to visit in the near future, so stayed tuned!


2. What kind of camera do you use? Canon EOS 70D


3. Lens of choice? Canon ES 18-55mm IS Macro 0.25m/0.8ft

4. Do you have an all-time favourite photograph you have taken?  One of my favourite photographs was taken on a holiday to Thailand. My husband and I were riding on a scooter off the beaten track and came out at this beautiful spot of palm trees and the beach. It was just so surreal. We just took a moment to sit there and take in all the beauty.

5. If you could photograph any person, thing, place or event in the whole world, what would it be? The Victoria Secrets Fashion Show and the Carnival in Rio De Janeiro!

6. What's your one piece of advice to aspiring photographers? Learn to be patient and leave room to grow and evolve. What is your style when you first start out may be different from what you ever expected. Find your own style and remember there is no right or wrong in photography, just someone's opinion.

7. You spend a lot of time behind the camera – how do you feel in front of it? I used to object to being in front of the camera. Now with my blog, I find it important to get in front of it and share my experiences with my viewers.

8. What is the most challenging aspect of running a photography business? Finding the time. Between working full time in an accounts position and being a mum to my 20 month old daughter, it doesn't leave a great deal of time for my photography and travel blog.
