AnitaAnita Norris is a passionate animal and wildlife photographer who travels to many areas of Australia and the world seeking all varieties of animals and wildlife to photograph. This web-site shows just some of her favourite images.

A safari to South Africa in 2008 changed everything when Anita realised photographing animals and capturing their essence and character was what she wanted to achieve most. Being a keen horsewoman makes horses an obvious (and close) choice to photograph and Anita delights in handling & photographing these noble creatures.Dogs and Horses make up the majority of Anita’s photography work though she loves photographing all animals. She can be booked for photoshoots for your animal from just $165 + images.

A series of simple photo books for young children have been started which she is trying to get published.  In 2010 she was a curator of, and contributor to, a Black Saturday Photographic Exhibition and is currently getting the collection archived through the Museum of Victoria.

2015 holds an exciting return to Africa with a small group trip planned for fellow animal-lovers visiting some favourite parts of Southern Africa and Botswana. Please contact Anita if you would like itinerary details and/or to be part of this special trip.
