Photography is an important part of my life. Ever since I can remember I have loved capturing precious moments. My earliest photographs were portraits of friends and family. I enjoy freezing a moment in time, capturing images that are fun and full of expression. I have a red bubble store, a stock photo account with OzStock in Australia and fotolia internationally . I am available for local photoshoots and for product photography. I use Adobe Photoshop CC 2014 to edit my photos and Adobe LightRoom to import and view my collections. I have created some Adobe Photoshop Actions (.ACN files) and Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) presets that are available to download.
I am also a webmaster. I started building websites back in 1995 and now use Adobe Dreamweaver and Joomla to create dynamic websites that are based on a mySQL database. You can view some of the sites I have developed at http://www.vanessapikerussell.com.au/sites. Recently I have been exploring the PHP Framwork CodeIgniter and I am updating a website that uses it. The website is paikitfai.com , Pai Kit Fai being the pen name of Geoff Pike, my Great-Uncle. I also developed this website with Joomla and Joomla Modules.
