Beck Rocchi inherited her love for photography from her dad, after having showed her how to use his Nikon when she was 13: “- Yeah, and it simply grew from there. He was such a gifted and passionate photographer, and I believe I would never have found it without him. He used to photograph my mum, so beautifully. After that I was always the girl with the camera in her bag. As the years went on and technology advanced it went from a small film camera, to a small digital, to a big digital SLR. I never studied it - but I think that is what makes my style a little different. Its all about how you see the world - and that is in your mind and your heart.”
After growing up in Melbourne, Beck is now based out of beautiful Byron Bay, surely an inspirational location. Other sources of inspiration are beauty, color, light, symmetry, movement, reflections, details, mistakes, and of course life: “- But most of all the power of capturing moments in time that will stay frozen forever.”
Her work hasn’t been published in any publications yet, but something tells us it’s not far away. Her plan for the future are to embrace, grow and develop her photography, writing, and her mind. Of other things: ” - Travel and documentary photography has always been the thing that fires me up, that stirs me deeply and gets me excited. I love throwing myself into a foreign environment - among new visuals, strange customs and unknown places. I feed off new ideas and challenges which means I get restless easily in familiar environments of mundane routine. It is an exciting ever-changing pathway for me to continue on!”
