Gigi Williams has been a professional photographer for over 30 years having graduated from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology. She is an Accredited Senior Imaging Scientist, a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society, the BioCommunications Association (BCA) in the USA, and a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Medical & Biological Illustration. She has been the recipient of many awards for her photography in Australia and the United States. In 2006 she was awarded the top honour of the BCA, the Louis Schmidt Award.
She has had many years experience as a practitioner and manager, most recently as the Director of a large creative department at the Royal Children’s Hospital providing photography, graphic design, video and web design to the Hospital and the wider community. In 2016 she left her busy job to concentrate on her personal work and combine her science background with art. Since then she has been privileged to travel extensively with her husband Robin, and has been recognised with 64 international awards for her landscape and nature photography. In 2018 she and Robin were guest presenters on Alan Fletcher's 'Photo Number 6'.
She says: “Although my images involve meticulous planning there is an element of magic required when Heaven and Earth; the moon and the stars, all align and I am able to capture a unique moment in time never to be repeated. I am passionate about recording the fragile nature of our world and it’s inherent beauty in a world that is often full of hatred and conflict.”
