Hi there, my name is Alistair Nitz.
I am a wheelchair bound Canberra-based multi-discipline photographer. I have a particular interest in people photography, including the genres of sports and street photography. In addition, I provide portrait services and event photography.
I took up photography after my rehabilitation specialist told me that I needed a new hobby. I was just coming to the end of three months stint in hospital after a cycling accident which put me in a wheelchair. With the prospect of never walking independently again I needed a new hobby.
So here I am. I am largely self taught, but have undertaken a number of on-line photography courses through Shaw Academy to increase my technical skills.
I first took my camera gear down to oval where I took photographs of my son's football games and placing them on Facebook for everyone. As my confidence and skill set grew I pushed myself to cover other sports.
I have become intrigued by street photography. and documenting real people and their real experiences.
More recently, I have been pushing my technical skills by becoming involved in abstract art side of photography.
Keep in touch and follow my photographic journey.
