Bought up in rural New South Wales, Cheree Ray finished her degree in Fine Art and Photography, in America in 1999. She spent many hours, processing film in a dark room -digital photography was yet to make it to the main stream and being able to start her career off in film, shows in the simplicity of her work today. Her first job was with a prestigious wedding studio, in Washington DC, working on high end-high profile weddings and events. It is here that She learnt how to manage the high emotions of a wedding day and disarm her subjects in any and every given situation, while still being a fly on the wall. She spent years fine tuning the art of making people feel comfortable in front of the camera; once people let down their guard, their true personality comes out to be photographed. Enabling her subjects to feel open and free in front of the camera, is a skill that is imperative to all portrait photographers. Chereeâ€™s attention was soon diverted by her growing young family. She moved to California and specialized in pregnancy boudoir, babies and family portraits. Always pushing the envelope with her art, Cheree landed some opportunities to work for fashion magazines in San Diego. She worked in catalogue, events and fashion shows. Soon, her work was picked up by Getty Images and she spent some time as an internationally published photojournalist, focusing on fashion out of LA and San Diego. In 2010, Cheree decided to go back home to Australia -back to her roots. She moved to Brisbane for a year, where she lectured at a local college. She now resides in Tamborine Mountain. Utilizing her prolific background in photography, she finds great joy in studying people through the lens of her camera.
