In The Picture: Hugh O’Brien

My name is Hugh O'Brien, I am 19 years old and I was born and raised in Sydney. I was heavily influenced by a woman - Miss Gesterkamp - at my high school. She taught me how to develop black and white film and how to process a negative from putting the roll into a camera to the paper behind glass. Those first few steps in photography when I was 13 were extremely eye opening to me, considering my lack of mechanical know-how, as well as the fact that I had only ever seen photography as a media type for situations such as trips to visit Santa at David Jones, or my 5th birthday party in Centennial Park. I won a bottom of the range Olympus digital SLR camera in a year 9 photography competition and never looked back. These times are still my biggest inspiration.
