My name is Caetlyn McLean. Based in Adelaide, South Australia, I’m a self-taught nature photographer who likes to capture the beauty of Australia whenever I get a chance. I developed a passion for the camera in late 2011 and has gone from strength to strength ever since, even to the point of capturing insects in flight.
When time and finances permit, I enjoy travelling around Australia with my family to capture that special photograph.
Since 2012, I was also the official photographer for Upstage Theatre until they ceased productions in 2019.
Skyscrapers. Highways. Housing estates. A lot of our natural environment is slowly being swallowed up by urbanisation and technology that embrace the use of artificial intelligence. Every year, hundreds of animals lose their natural habitats due to the greediness of mankind and many complex eco-systems are destroyed.
My aim is to preserve the memory of such delicate environments and raise awareness to the beauty of the world as Mother Nature intended. Urbanisation may be good for population growth of humans in general but the animal population is also declining at an alarming rate.
So, the next time, you venture out into the urban jungle, take a step back and have a good listen of the natural world around you. Please don’t let mankind destroy what’s left of Mother Nature.
