Lyn McCreanor is an Australian photographer, stylist and maker.
I have always chased beauty, light, texture and flavour.
In 2009 working with my brother, Chef Simon Lawson to style and set up Agape Organic Restaurant I started taking pictures of the food for marketing purposes. This is when my love of food and lifestyle photography became more than just a hobby. Taking a couple of years off to study the art of taking pictures with some of my all time favourite photographers and stylists was a dream come true.
There is something so captivating about photography. It draws you in, opens your mind to adventure and inspires hope. It is a moment in time forever captured whether it be in the pages of a book, hanging on a wall or a forgotten box filled with treasures to rediscover.
I love working with natural light. Both bright and light and dark and moody resonates in my photography. Having recently moved to Leura in the Blue Mountains the beautiful light in our 1950's weatherboard makes the perfect space to shoot. Venturing outside to shoot, the mountains have the most picturesque little hideaway lanes and vast natural backdrops which is filled with natures serene beauty. I travel between my mountain studio and location shoots in and around Sydney.
One of my favourite subjects to photograph is my 2 year old daughter Madeleine Rose who is purely delightful and knows how to work the camera already!
In my spare time I write for my lifestyle blog and you can also find me mostly on Instagram.
I am a maker and creator at heart. I love adding beauty to a space and photography is a medium that captures a moment in time that I hope brings joy , hope and stillness to the eye.
