Hi, welcome and thanks for stopping by! I’m Tania Pile, a photographer specialising in photographing preschoolers and junior sporting teams based in Adelaide, South Australia.
I’ve had a camera in my hand from a very young age, bribing my younger brothers to allow me to photograph them over and over again – in some pretty awful lighting against the old tin shed on the farm. By the age of 17 I’d won my first photographic competition, the prize being an SLR camera. I could now photograph any time I wanted, much to my brothers disgust.
Fast forward to today, technology has changed enormously over the past 2 decades, but that desire to create amazing images remains the same for me. I get to meet wonderful people each and every day. Photographing that magical kindy year where kids get to truly learn through play as well as watching kids growing up into confident young adults through their sporting clubs in and around Adelaide.
In 2021, my photography business is celebrating 15 years under the name Photoplay Studios in Adelaide. The business has grown to include a small, skilled and dedicated team of awesome individuals who help create your children’s photos each year.
If after having a look through the website you would like to have a chat about visiting your kindergarten, childcare centre or junior sporting club to create your annual portraits, I’d love to hear from you. You can fill out the contact page on the website and I’ll get back to you asap, this is the fastest way to get in touch as most mornings I’m photographing children in centres.
Ps. Oh, that obligatory paragraph about what I like…..
I love to travel (both overseas and camping)! I don’t believe in waiting for retirement to travel the world, life is too short, although 2020 pulled up a few short term travel goals! I love a great bottle of red wine and ash rind triple brie cheese…..and chocolate (but that one’s a given, right?).
I have a wonderful husband who is in charge of all the technical guff needed to operate the computers and back up systems (I couldn’t do it without him). I’ve got 2 spunky young men who assist in preparing the packaging for photo days are happy to do light tests in the studio for bonus Nintendo switch time! Life is good.
