Amy Venema is an award-winning photographer and a Laverton local. Amy aims to show that photography provides a positive outlet to young people by volunteering her time at many events that require a photographer and interacting with the public with the hope to inspire the next generation of photographers and artists. She believes that photography is something everyone can do and benefit from because the creation of true art is done not by what gear you own but how much passion you have. Amy started taking photos when her Dad handed her a camera during a family holiday and she has been taking photos ever since. She loves photographing architecture and people.
