Sarah Cusack

I am a recent graduate based in Melbourne with majors in photography and biology.

My professional experience, to date, has been shooting portraiture of families, children and animals. I work quickly and am efficient in finessing details such as hair, hands, posture and hotspots. I am practiced in safely setting up and packing down equipment and have a current Working with Children check.

I have a special interest in intersections of science and art among other photography and artistic genres. My website contains a sampling of my artwork including professional, work experience, university and hobby work. As well as photography, it also displays some of the work from my painting classes, as well as my minor in animation and skills with After Effects, 2D & 3D animation software.

As part of my courses I underwent work experience with the clinical photographers in the Medical Illustration Department at the Royal Melbourne Hospital. My prior professional background has largely been working in healthcare administration and has given me years of practice in working in teams, administrative work and assisting hospital patients.

I also enjoy the live Melbourne music scene having performed in many Melbourne live music venues and festivals playing classical violin and more recently in folk rock bands.
