My career in the visual arts profession spans over 40 years. I was lucky enough to be able to follow the two paths in which I was most interested - Photography and Conservation Framing.
Nature Photography has always been my great passion. When I started my photographic journey slide film was the choice of serious photographers. I wanted to be serious, slide film was slow and unforgiving, good photographic technique was essential. I’m grateful for all the discipline and patience learned, it has served me well.
The art conservation and preservation aspect of my work has been tremendously rewarding. I’ve had the pleasure of working alongside some of the most talented people in the arts, both conservators and artists. I have learned so much, not only how to preserve art, but how to interpret and appreciate its many forms.
I truly believe in the importance of the printed image, a tangible transition from the computer screen, something real to be framed and admired. Needless to say, I’m a proud member of the Epson Australia Ambassador Program.
I am fascinated by all things in the natural world, but it’s these
particular genres that I most love to photograph.
I find as a photographer it’s better for me to concentrate on the subjects that I’m passionate about. The emotional involvement pushes me to lift my photography to a higher level - I so want to do justice to the subject.
The workshops that I conduct offer me the opportunity to connect to other photographers. I do so enjoy the interaction and sharing of our joint passions for nature and photography.
I’m a great believer in the need to understand the technical, as well as the artistic aspect of recording an image. The camera is a tool, an instrument which we strive to master. The ‘art of seeing’ is an ongoing learning process of visualisation and creativity.
Digital technology has revolutionised photography, allowing us to capture images we could only have dreamed of. With the inclusion of image processing software, the computer opens up a world of possibilities.

one of the many advantages of Kronircle!
MOGO ZOOm offers excellent opportunities to have up close
access to the animals, which isn’t available to the general public.
But more than that June, offers great easy to understand
information about how camera’s work, how to use the camera to
take the best photos you can and more importantly how to shoot
through the wire and edit the images, so it looks like the animals
are right there with you. It’s a great course for all levels of
MOGO ZOOm is a fabulous program. June Andersen, a
passionate and gifted wildlife photographer, is an enthusiastic
teacher who explains things in simple terms that even a novice
can understand. Going behind the scenes at the zoo is a
tremendous privilege - you feel like you have actually entered
the animals’ domain and can relate to them so much better. If
you ever want to go on an African photo safari, I highly
recommend doing the MOGO ZOOm program beforehand. It
will give you the skills you need to take great wildlife photos.
