Jenny Templin has worked as a freelance and commercial photographer since 1983 when she discovered the power of photography after taking portraits of the Dalai Lama for an article she planned to write. Since then she has conducted a broad range of commissions for corporate and private clients, including a 9 month project (taking portraits of all 6,000 staff) for our national broadcaster, the ABC in 1985; photographing the work of 70 scientists in 1992 for the Office of the Supervising Scientist, Kakadu and in 2000 providing a 1,000 image photo library for CITYRAIL, documenting their entire network. In addition she has conducted several long-term personal projects: the Queen Victoria Building Restoration, 1984-1987; the construction of Darling Harbour, 1986-1988 and the Pyrmont Peninsula Transformation, 1988-present. She has also been official photographer for major events such as the Bicentennial and numerous Australian visits of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
Her work has been widely published and exhibited in solo and group shows, including the Powerhouse Museum's,
Absolutely Fabulous in 1994 ; the Queen Victoria Building Centennial Exhibition in 1998; the Australian Centre for Photography's 25th Anniversary Exhibition in 2001, The Changing Face of Sydney in NSW State Parliament in 2004 and SYDNEY NOW, Australian photojournalism at the Museum of Sydney in 2007 . In addition to her work in Australia Jenny has spent years traveling the Indian subcontinent, exploring the diversity of the subcontinent's rich culture, history and spiritual traditions in several exhibitions, including “Magic of India, 2002; "The Mystics of India" in Cross Projections 2005 and “INDIA Outer Pilgrimage, Inner Journey in 2005. Her passion for photography has also led to her working as an award-winning educator since 1989, teaching photography to thousands of adults at a range of tertiary institutions.
