Thank you for taking the time to view my website. I love to hear about my clients and their family, so its only fair I share with you a little about myself. I'm Michelle Ardle, the photographer and artist behind Talking Point Photography. I am a mother to a beautiful 7 year old who is my inspiration in most of my creative endeavours. A wife to an amazing husband who's support means I can follow my passion as a career, and an Artist, Photographer and Creator of beautiful things.
I am a university educated photographer and hold a Double Bachelors Degree and Diploma in professional photography, Visual Art and Secondary Education. I have studied at The QLD College of Art, Queensland University of Technology, Moreton Institute of TAFE and The Photography Institute. I am a State and National Award winning photographer (QPPA 2015 2x Silver Awards) (APPA 2015 1x Silver Distinction, 2x Silver Awards) and always pride myself on my experience, attention to detail and ability to capture even the most reluctant subjects, in images they will treasure for a lifetime.
I have over 15 years experience in the visual and creative arts industry and have been a fully accredited member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) since 2013.
I run a full time professional studio in Ayr QLD, equipped with top of the range equipment and luxurious products. I provide high quality professional photography services, with an emphasis on skilful capture, creativity and flawless polished image presentation. I shoot with the end goal of creating beautiful products and artwork for every client with a range of display options to suit everyone..
Being a photographer and an Artist means that the product I sell is not just a photograph, or documentation of a moment in time, rather the emphasis is on creative expression, design and breathtaking imagery that I know people will talk about.
That is why 'Talking Point' as the name suggests, will endeavour to capture your special moments, emotions, and images worth talking about.
Your photographs will not only document fleeting precious memories, but will become conversation pieces... works of Art, to enjoy for many years to come.
PHOTOGRAPHIC SERVICES INCLUDE:
Maternity Portraiture Newborn Portraiture Children and Families
Engagement and Couples
Weddings, Debs and Events
I look forward to capturing and creating special memories for you and your family.
