Tilly Roberts Photo

Natural, real and raw photographs, focusing on honest and intimate images.

Hey! I’m Tilly and I’m a 24 year old photographer. When I was 16, photography introduced me to my love affair with light, and I am forever grateful. In 2012 during my first year of university at UOW studying Visual Arts, I officially began my photography career.

I label myself as a ‘lifestyle photographer’ as I do not limit myself to any one genre of photography – I’m there for all of it; the weddings, the engagements, the music, and even the birth sessions – I’m there for the life moments! My style is very natural, real & raw, and focuses on honest & intimate images. I like to keep things fun and casual.

When I’m shooting, I navigate between two styles and methods of photographing to create one cohesive narrative. The session will either call for a lifestyle or documentary style of shooting – or a combination of both at different times!

Not quite sure of the difference between lifestyle and documentary? To put it simply, lifestyle is a method of shooting where the photographer’s hand gently guides or influences the scene. I may remove distracting items from the scene, pose the subjects naturally and give cues, or reposition them for best available lighting.

​However, documentary is shot without interference from the photographer, so with no room to manipulate the scene before me, I am left to tell the story as it is. Without making adjustments such as posing or giving cues, I am free to focus on the authentic moments unfolding before me. Utilising these two methods of shooting allows me to do what I do best; tell your story.

A few things about me; I live for the Spring time, I love the smell of a bushfire and roll my car windows down in the summer just to smell it, I love trying and collecting new hot sauces, I love thunderstorms, plants, growing flowers in my cut flower garden, and am addicted to horror movies. I talk about the characters in ‘The Office’ as if they are real people in my life, and Leslie Knope is my spirit animal.

I am available to shoot anything and everything! I am based in Bathurst NSW, but am also available worldwide and am ready to travel to wherever you are located to shoot your session, (including destination weddings)! Please email me so we can have a chat :)
