Kerrie Brewer’s VET journey started with an interest in photography as a way of documenting life and capturing images that evoke memories. A full-time mother for 12 years, she wanted to balance family commitments and study, while developing her skills in something she felt passionate about that was also hands-on.
Studying was a big change for Kerrie, who initially enrolled in short courses before commencing the Certificate IV in Photo Imaging at the Canberra Institute of Technology in 2014. Once she realised she could turn her passion into a career, Kerry progressed to the Advanced Diploma of Creative Product Development. She enjoyed the training structure that allowed her to transition seamlessly from one course to the next. Her training also enabled her to explore different genres of photography before specialising.
Kerrie is now running her own freelance photography business; pursuing a career she loves with the flexibility to spend time with her family.
