The Photographer

Hello, I’m Liyat. I’m a portrait and event photographer currently living and working in Melbourne, Australia. Born in Ethiopia in 1982, I’m a self-taught photographer whose passion of making photos grew from initially capturing nature and urban settings to capturing emotions and story-telling through images.

In 2013, my photos were selected and exhibited for charity at a gallery in Sydney. This spurred an interest in pursuing a career in photography. Since then, I have showcased my photography in a group exhibition in Melbourne, captured events, products, and portraits of people, volunteered my photography and editing skills to non-profit organisations. My photos have also been published in newsletters and featured online.

When my camera is packed away, I enjoy making music, dancing, watching movies and shows like Game of Thrones with my husband and helping my two boys build Legos.
