This slump provided the opportunity for Bridgette to grab the Rhinoceros Beetle by the horns and pursue her passion of sharing the beauty of the miniature world that largely goes unnoticed.
Aussie Macro Photos features photographs by Bridgette available to purchase in a range of mediums including gorgeous acrylic blocks and wall hangings. Collections of postcards and greeting cards are also available via the Shop.
In a brand-new enterprise not offered in Cairns previously, Bridgette is now running Guided Tours Let’s Go Buggin for those interested in seeing and or photographing some of the many of the lifeforms she has photographed in the Cairns Botanic Gardens. Her 1000 plus hours spent in the gardens has allowed her to become aware of many host plants and locations for a variety of caterpillars, cocoons, moths and butterflies, leaf, tree and planthoppers, praying mantis, jumping spiders, tortoise beetles, damselflies and dragonflies, and a variety of frogs.
During the Wet Season in Cairns (usually November to May), there are many beautiful and unusual fungi to be found and photographed, and Let’s Go Shroomin Weekly Tours run each Sunday.
To participate in a tour with Bridgette, please visit the ‘Book a Tour‘ page.
Bridgette was recently placed in the Top 20 in the Photographer of the Year 2020, in the ‘Animal & Nature’ category with her submission ‘Beautiful Beasts of the Rainforest’.
