About Gigi Williams
I love photography. I have since I was a teenager and it became my career for many many years. Since leaving my busy job as the Director of a large creative department at the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne, I have been privileged to travel extensively with my husband Robin, and I have received over 70 international awards for my landscape and nature photography. There is nothing better than being able to go on a photography shoot with the one you love, who understands the time it takes; the zone you get into with the concentration, where nothing else matters but what’s in the viewfinder; and the highs and lows that are associated with a great or a disappointing mission. You just never know what you will come back with or who will win pic of the day!!

She says: “Although my images involve meticulous planning there is an element of magic required when Heaven and Earth; the moon and the stars, all align and I am able to capture a unique moment in time never to be repeated. I am passionate about recording the fragile nature of our world and it’s inherent beauty in a world full of hatred and conflict.”
