Hi there, my name is Erin. I eat Vegemite on frozen white bread, I am a total romantic, if it comes in pink that's the one I have, I always have a camera with me, and I am so true to my word that sometimes it hurts me.
My passion is photography, capturing natural portraits and casually documenting the special events of life. My motto is to 'Take a lifetimes worth' which basically means to take photos that capture the moment which will last a lifetime.
With a background in fine art photography, I see beauty through the lens of even the most banal of objects. They say never to work with children or animals, but I love the unpredictability of them both. I have worked in commercial studios in both Canada and Australia capturing everything from babies' first steps on film to a furry part of the family being that crazy character that you love so much.
Sometimes I get asked how long I have been into photography; one of my earliest memories was taking a photo of my parents when I had just turned four. My first camera was a plastic red film camera that my Dad bought for me at the post office for $4.95. Things have come a long way since then, but I do still like to have fun with my plastic cameras.
Award winning international fine art, wedding and portrait photographer, Erin Woodgate was born in 1987 in Sydney, Australia to an English father and Australian mother. Travel was always running through her veins and in 2008, in her final year of her Fine Arts degree, she went on exchange to Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax, Canada. After finishing her degree and working in a portrait studio on the Central Coast in Australia, she returned to Halifax then followed her heart to London, Canada and continues to travel the world working as a wedding and portrait photographer.
I'm a self proclaimed world gypsy and one of the things I love about photography is that my camera and I are portable therefore I am always open to destination work.
Currently booking for available dates in 2013, 2014 and 2015 for pet portraits and Weddings in London and South Western Ontario with regular travel to Halifax, Nova Scotia.
