WHEN it comes to capturing precious moments and memories, Shanea Rossiter thinks everyone deserves the highest quality photographs.

Which is why Ms Rossiter has launched her business, Empress Images, in Warwick.

"I am excited to be able to share my passion for photography and offer a high quality product to the community," Ms Rossiter said.

Situated on Palmerin St, Empress Images specialises in portrait photography for families, children and babies.

"Having recently completed my training I have a strong knowledge of the most up to date techniques, technology and tools available to ensure clients receive a high quality product," Ms Rossiter said.

She found her passion for photography in high school, then she went on to further her learning at Southern Queensland Institute of TAFE.

At that institution, she completed a Diploma in Photo Imaging.

Last year, Ms Rossiter was presented with the school's prestigious FOCAS Bob Walker Memorial Trophy for outstanding achievement.

Head of the Southern Queensland Institute of TAFE photo imaging department Doug Spowart said Ms Rossiter showed great potential while she was studying.

"Shanea is a talented photographer who has shown a real flair for capturing people and moments," Mr Spowart said. Next month Empress Images will host a series of workshops and exhibitions for local disabled residents in conjunction with the Department of Communities to celebrate disability month.

"This project will expose participants to expressing themselves through the arts and build their skills and capacity in photography," Ms Rossiter said.

"It will give participants access to a professional photographer but in a group setting through workshops and then one on one in selecting images for the exhibition."

In October last year Ms Rossiter held her first solo exhibition, Inspiring Women, at the Warwick Art Gallery, which consisted of 14 portraits of women who have inspired her during her life.

The exhibition was part of the Cancer Council's Girls Night In promotion which aims to raise money for cancer research, prevention and support programs.

Photo shoots are scheduled on an appointment basis only.
