About Maria

I’m Maria, a professional portrait photographer based in Karratha, Western Australia. I am responsible for all of the beautiful images you see before you! I am passionate about capturing the true essence of your family as they are, in the moments I am so honoured to witness and share with you. Maria Campbell Photography certainly keeps me busy but when I’m not behind the camera, you can typically find me spending time with my husband and our three beautifully wild boys aged 8, 7 and 3! 

I love capturing photos amongst the stunning landscapes of the Pilbara region, especially at dusk. The incredible colours the sky throws out once the sun has set, provides the perfect setting to take the most picturesque photos. My style however, is continually developing and evolving and I think as a creative person, that will never change. My commitment to further my education and insight in my field ensures that I am forever investing in my passion on both a personal and a professional level. 

Nothing makes me happier than continuing to capture different moments in the lives of my clients. I would love to hear from you and be a part of your special memories. Please contact me if you would like to take this journey with me and a Maria Campbell Photography session.

My Story

Because I am an open book, there is always more to discover about me! Want to know more?

I wasn’t always a photographer. Before having my children, I was a Beauty Therapist and spent over 14 years managing and working in beauty salons. Though I loved photography in high school; it simply was not an option I had ever considered as a career path. Surely the absence of the Internet and Google didn’t help! Despite this, the art form of photography always fascinated me. So much so that I have not parted with the DSLR camera around my neck for the last 13 years! 

When I received my first DSLR camera as a Christmas gift from my husband; I had no idea how to use it at the time but I still thought my photos were great! I snapped away happily in Auto mode until the frustration I experienced in difficult situations like low light, overcast and harsh sun, motivated me to learn more. 

A defining moment for me was in 2018 after having my third and last child. I had spent the previous 5 years committed to raising my children and was completely out of touch with the workforce. I had changed as a person and hoped I could pursue the rare opportunity to find something I was passionate about, something that truly made my heart sing and gave me purpose. Looking back now, it was just so blatantly obvious! I don’t know why it took so long for this to click! 

I dove head first into studying photography and focussed on learning as much as I could about understanding my camera. How to use it in Manual mode, how to read light, understand it and shape it around my subjects. I learnt how to compose images for maximum impact and how to edit my images so that I could execute my vision. Of course, I no longer use my entry level 

DSLR but the passion to capture natural, classic and timeless images has remained and is what Maria Campbell Photography was founded on in 2019. 

If you are still here with me and have spent time reading this, thank you. I wanted to give you an insight into who I am and why I have chosen the path of photography. If you love my work and would love for me to capture your images, do reach out! I look forward to chatting and working together to give you an amazing experience and beautiful photographic art.
