I've recently come across some of my old projects from my unfinished media production coure from 2009-2010. A short film : Passed Out, my 15 minute tv pilot creation: Intro, & a variety of live music videos (some, but not all music videos were for my tafe project that I called: Canberra Bands Live - A 3 camera set up - the 1st ep, with Bec as presenter, had 3-4 cameras, the others, I did a 3 camera filming set-up, solo, thank goodness for tripods. All care as were various types & of various quality! I edited & produced all, as well as filming.)

Whilst studying Media @ CIT, I crewed on a largely variety of projects, in a large variety of roles, in both studio, from our weekly tv Talk Show - Raiders TV (often Camera 1 close up), to a variety of student projects (various) & OB, from national folk festival, canberra, to the regular weekly ob sessions in house (2009, camera) i never received any footage of any of these, only what I did from my own, Personal Assignments & Personal Projects, to which I did all camera work using my own cameras, & usually editing too.

Intro (My 15 TV Show Idea for school project) - i have 3 sections uploaded separately from the day, without the show intro/ outro, due to the short 5 or 10 minute max limit youtube had back then) (Producer, Ideas, Casting, Location filming for Intro / Outro / Segment Intros, etc) (2009)

I have photos for view on Redbubble: www.redbubble.com.au/people/tmac

I own 2 DSLR Cameras of different types and a big zoom digital camera. I own a small basic JVC HD video camera (but can use bigger better cameras where they are available), a 2nd hand larger semi-pro sd manual Mini DV video camera, a basic sit on-camera rode mic & good little tripod, & a not as good older, more basic tripod as a backup.
I own some large chroma backdrops, 2 basic low powered lights too, if needed - but have no-one to use it with.
I am currently a hobbyist photographer, who is currently looking into various options and areas to take it further and into a new dimension.
I have a few exhibition ideas in mind, for when I I get the funds. One of which, in particular, is very interesting, different and unique, but that is all I can say on that matter, till I have the funds to start it and put it together.
At this stage, my best work is candid, as I don't know anyone who will pose for free, as everyone I meet seems to hate having their photos taken - which is a little annoying, so sometimes you need to think of creative ways to take candid pictures of family an friends at an event, without them knowing and show them how great it is later..
I am interested in doing photography & video camera work for short / long / feature films, for concerts / parties / events, male & female (all sizes) model portfolios, pets, family / kids / couples / individuals, alternative / goth / punk, etc.
I am located in the Canberra region, but may able to travel to Sydney, Melbourne, and other areas of NSW or Vic, decently paid work, which includes deferred payment.

Tara has participated in 4 multi-artist exhibitions in 2009 - 3 at Photo Access, Manuka, Canberra and 1 at Tap Gallery, Sydney. and 3 multi-artist exhibitions in 2010 at Photo Access, Manuka, Canberra
