A bit about me

Marina is a Brisbane (Australia) based photographer, specialising in weddings and portraiture. Available to travel world wide.

An early fascination in capturing images of love, joy and real human beauty led Marina to purchase her first SLR camera at the age of fifteen and was elected school photographer in her senior years.

Soon after she refined her craft to pursue her passion as a career. Starting her formal training at Toowoomba Tafe where she gained a Associate Diploma of Photography in 1994. Going on to Griffith University completing her Bachelor of Visual Arts- Photography, Griffith University, 1998.

The key facets of Marina’s life resonate through her vibrant imagery; a proud wife and mother of two, an op-shop enthusiast and lover of all things vintage. With a vast experience in working with people, Marina approaches photography with patience, openness and a down to earth attitude. Photographing for the Disney Cruise Ship soon after graduating bestowed a new level of patience that could only be learned from managing a multitude of excited children.

A balance of work and life is not hard to achieve when the job is a passion. To capture a person’s inner beauty through modern and timeless imagery is the driving motivation behind Marina Ridgway Photography.
