My Story

Photographer & Founder of GramSlayers

My journey with photography started 2 years ago, before Grams Slayers was a household name. My very first camera was a Canon 700d I bought a little over two years ago. Things escalated quickly for me when I had a small interview with coffee and a featured article in a local facebook page with my photos, following that I was featured on a number of instagram accounts, linking my account with the featured image. I had no idea what a feature page was to be honest, but over time people started following my work from finding me on these feature accounts. Visit her gallery at @rachelhau

"IT'S NOT WHAT YOU CAN ACHIEVE NEXT WEEK, BUT WHAT YOU CAN ACHIEVE IN A YEAR" 

I would say it took me 6-12 months to see improvements in my photography abilities, so I took the leap and upgraded my camera to a Canon 5D mkiii, I tell every beginner “it’s not what you can achieve next week, but what you can achieve in a year”.  Also, when I would get asked what equipment I recommend, I would recommend “my eyes are my primary piece of equipment”

YOU HAVE TO PUT IN THE TIME.

Ok my full-time profession is, Rachel Hau, the property manager, so time really doesn’t exist in my life. I may have used my only time available to shoot a few paid gigs with the 5D, in 2016, mainly to pay it off. Weekends were non-existent in 2016 so I started up @Gramslayers a feature page of all the photos I find inspiring to me. My personal account and my own personal photos went on hold for all of 2016. Paying off my expensive gear with some paid shoots/collaborations, while growing a feature page at my office desk, while talking to my clients

Aerial photography is one of my favourite styles to shoot

“MY EYES ARE MY PRIMARY PIECE OF EQUIPMENT”

For me photography is my escape from reality, I found something I love doing and a community who also loves to follow and join me on my visual adventures. With my intelligent camera the 5D, that I paid off and a new year, I went back to taking photos for myself in 2017. Sharing my own photos again and posting them again, I have now established my name back and fast forward, I teamed up with my favourite Camera Brand Canon Australia got to help host photo meets for their community,

2018, is looking like a good year. Positive Vibez my friends.
