Introducing Stephanie Mills
Born and bred in the outback town of Cunnamulla, photographer Stephanie Mills spent her formative years surrounded by bush subjects and natural landscapes. After 10 years on the Gold Coast and in Brisbane working as a specialty wedding and portrait photographer, Stephanie returned to her roots in western Queensland and reacquainted herself with the heart and beauty of the Australian bush.
Stephanie’s return to Cunnamulla not only represented a change in her work location it also brought about a change in her work focus and subject matter. Stephanie set about capturing the Australian outback in beautiful full colour images. With diverse and breathtaking scenery, Stephanie is committed to capturing Australia’s unique stories and sharing them with the world. She has been touted “Australia’s photographic storyteller”.
In August 2001, the Stephanie Mills Gallery in Cunnamulla was opened, to much acclaim. The gallery showcases a permanent exhibition of Stephanie’s captivating photographic images. With over five successful public exhibitions to date, Stephanie has expanded her portfolio to include a vast array of images from Tasmania, Victoria, New South Wales, north Queensland, New Zealand, South Australia, the Northern Territory, Kimberley and Western Australia and many Queensland locations.
Her current exhibition in Out the Back Australia showcases over 150 images including landscapes, bird life wild life, sunsets, rivers and streams from a cross-section of the outback.
