Jan Sargeant

During my years at the University of Queensland and for several years thereafter I was active in several theatrical productions in Brisbane, in both an acting and singing capacity. Motherhood intervened but in the late seventies I studied black and white photography, which in pre-digital days necessarily included darkroom expertise. The advent of digital photography has enabled me full expression in the medium. I specialize in candid, un-posed portraits and take an interpretive role in the post-processing, resulting in atmospheric, dramatic images. These images have been used by my subjects on various websites, newsletters, professional cards and information sheets. I am currently working on a project which entails photographing local artists and artisans while immersed in their work.
