Roslyn’s personable approach lends itself to developing open communication and exchange of ideas with clients, to not only understand, but to enhance the scope of their photographic requests.

With over 15 years hands on experience as a geologist, in underground mining, and exploration, Roslyn has developed a special interest in industrial, mining and aerial photography. Roslyn has a strong appreciation for all safety aspects when working on sites, not only for herself, but for those working around her. When photographing in mining and industrial environments, she understands the importance of working efficiently to minimise any downtime in production, and providing a level of flexibility in timeframes should it be necessary to extend or reschedule a work task, as often happens in the industrial workspace.
Roslyn has created an extensive library of travel and lifestyle images over the years and has works published nationally and internationally for industry, tourism and lifestyle publications. Most of the travel images have been captured in rural and remote parts of Australia and several overseas destinations. Videography, timelapse and drone photography are increasingly becoming an important component of commercial requirements and Budd Photography offers these services on request.

Risk Management Practices
All projects require an appropriate level of risk assessment and management, whether simply conducting a portrait session in a corporate office or photographing mobile equipment in an underground mine. During previous industry experience, working as a training coordinator in the safety and training department, Roslyn has facilitated many risk assessments and conducts personal risk assessments prior to any task by following the simple 3 step process:
- What am I about to do?
- What can go wrong?
- What can I do to prevent it from going wrong?
Roslyn maintains a high level of professionalism at all stages of her work and understands that some clients require a high degree of confidentiality, especially within Government and high-level corporate sectors. Budd Photography manages data in a confidential manner, with storage and backup conducted in-house on internal servers. Clients may request data transfer via cloud technology, however this will not be done for any confidential or sensitive data.
Roslyn believes that all people should be treated with the same level of respect, regardless of their background. Roslyn has worked on several photographic projects requiring cultural sensitivity and works closely with clients to understand and appreciate the beliefs and traditions of others and any special considerations that need to be taken into account during the photographic sessions.
Social Responsibility Initiatives
Roslyn is a proud local of Townsville and supports a variety of local and regional charities and community groups, including Ronald McDonald House, Challenge Games, Rotary, AIPP Reflections Project, Black Dog Charity Ride, Mates4Mates, Fight for a Cause and Pink Lady Triathlon event for Breast Cancer Fundraising.
“Based on the great relationship we had with Roslyn through the Diamantina and Leichhardt Power Stations project in Mount Isa, APA Group asked Ros to photograph our gas transmission and network operations in Brisbane. APA Group is Australia’s largest energy infrastructure business, transporting around half of Australia’s gas usage. Ros has an amazing ability to capture any image – be it a gas valve, a piece of pipe or our skilled team of operators out in the field – and have that image tell a story about our business. Importantly, Ros makes everyone she’s photographing feel comfortable and relaxed, even the most camera-shy. This skill and Ros’s personable nature made the photographic shoot an enjoyable day for everyone, resulting in a huge range of highly usable images. The most satisfying experiences are when you get what you needed, meet your objectives and have a great time doing it – working with Ros from Budd Photography ticks all these boxes.” ~ External Communications Manager, APA Group
We’ve had the opportunity of working with a large range of clients across a broad industry sector. Here’s a snapshot of some of the businesses and events that we’ve have had the pleasure of working with over the years.
“Pacific Hydro engaged Roslyn to photograph a very special event for the company, the opening ceremony of our first Solar Farm. From day one, Roslyn was a pleasure to work with. On the day of the event, her experience and professionalism were a huge help as she worked in perfectly with our guests and team as needed. The results were absolutely stunning photographs that captured the special elements of the event, impressed our stakeholders and guests and will provide us with wonderful memories and marketing collateral for year to come.”
