My Photo scholarship 2011 entry

Australia | Wednesday, 19 October 2011 | 5 photos

Hello, my name is Alindi Oosthuizen. I was born and raised in South Africa until I moved to Australia at the age of 8. Growing up in the heart of South Africa I was always out and about exploring and learning about the majestic ways of nature. South Africa is in my opinion one of the most beautiful countries on earth not only because of its incredible array of wildlife but also because of its richness in culture. I strongly believe it is where my passion for photography came from, as a young girl I always knew in my heart that I wanted to grow up to become a photographer. Witnessing first hand the beauty of the land and the way it made me feel inside, I needed a way to capture those moments. My mother Amanda gave me my first camera when I was seven years old. Although it was only a cheap disposable Kodak camera I couldn't keep my hands off it and having the urge to capture anything and everything. Photography in my opinion lets you not only express who you are as an individual but also allows you to showcase to the world exactly what you are seeing through your own eyes. To me that is the most amazing thing anyone could ever do! At the age of 18 I am really starting to realise what road I want to take in my life. Having graduated in 2010 I am currently on a gap year working a full time job trying to save enough money to move away to Brisbane Australia to attend university where I hope to study photography. I am only a amateur photographer however I hope to one day make my dreams come true by turning into a professional. Behind every photo there is a unique story and I am constantly driven to define that story by aspiring to capture a better shot every time I pick up my camera. This would be a once in a life time opportunity and that's exactly how I would treat it.

Nightfall slowly creeps into the horizon as if to somewhat swallow the breaking dusk. This landscape shot captures the reflective image of the sunset which is magnificently mirrored over the low tide shore line.
