“You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone”

It taught me to dream big, appreciate the little things, and find the beauty in the obsolete.   

Rural Australia is my home, and even after travelling to over 24 countries around the world, this is where my heart yearns to be. Deep in the Outback, Covered in Dust, Barefoot and Free.   

Growing up in this space made me who I am today, and gave me a deep respect for rural Australia.

I grew up in a small country town in North West NSW Australia; Rowena. Growing up in such a remote part of the bush gave me a strong imagination, and a lust for adventure. I spent majority of my childhood collecting rocks and feathers, raising bearded dragons, talking to turtles, creating cubby houses, riding horses, water-skiing, camping, drawing and playing with my three sisters Emily, Jessie and Millie. 

Allow me to take you on a raw and real journey...

I'm Sarah Wheeler, the Woman Behind the Camera & Beneath The Brim (literally). 

I studied a Bachelor of Visual Communication Design for 3 years at The University of Newcastle ( 6 months studied abroad on Vancouver Island, BC at Victoria University) 

I've worked for Gai Waterhouse Racing as a Stable Hand in Sydney, Aus 

I ventured North to Jillaroo on a Cattle Station in Marble Bar - An old mining town known as "The Hottest Town In Australia" from six months. 

I have had my story and photography featured in Graziher Magazine, Rural Womens Day Magazine, The Girlfriend Magazine, The Land, and in The Heart Of The Bush Exhibition held in the Goondiwindi Civic Centre, QLD.   

I've travelled to 25 countries around the world including those within Europe, Canada, and Thailand as well as a few small Islands in the Indian and Pacific Ocean. 

Fun Facts

So from that point onward, photography and videography became more important to me than ever. If I hadn’t had taken it up, I wouldn’t have captured the memories of my beautiful Mumma, Therese, that I hold close to my heart today and forever.

Since her passing I feel so completely drawn to document life itself in Rural Australia, the lives of others with those they love, and assisting small and large businesses to pursue their passions and reach their goals. I know how it goes in Rural Areas of Australia, where time flies, and we’re always busy. We always say “we don’t have time” or “maybe next time”. This I promise to you; we are going to make the time.

Let’s tell your story. Let’s prioritise experiences and creating memories. Lets create life-long lasting memories that authentically preserve everything that is YOU. Every milestone, every event, every new beginning, no matter how big or how small.

When my Father, Gavin, passed away, I was twelve years of age, and it was during this time in my life where I understood the importance of time. The time that we have here on earth is so incredibly precious. In the years before my Fathers passing, taking photos wasn’t very prominent. As the months went by my memory began to slowly fade, and all I ever wanted was more photos and videos of him, so I could see his face, see his smile and hear his voice. 

The most kind, caring and compassionate parents you would ever meet.

The saying that goes “You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone”; I don’t believe it for a second. I knew exactly what I had.

Won’t lie, I also like to watch a little bit of Yellowstone; just a little bit. More than anything, I love being with those I love most, my family. I love them wholeheartedly, they’re the most important pieces of my puzzle.

riding horses, driving tractors, shovelling grain, raising a baby kangaroo (Josie Joy), dreaming up big ideas, travelling the world and learning exciting new things through photographic workshops to expand on my knowledge.

When I’m not behind the camera, you’ll find me...

With the passing of my Father Gavin in 2010, I felt drawn to the symbolism of the wide brim felt hat that he wore day in, day out. When he was beneath the brim of that hat he could accomplish anything. He was fearless, confident, strong, respected, valued and so much more. It is my intended tribute to my Father to name my business after him, as I have a strong belief that I can achieve anything from beneath it. So the business became; Beneath The Brim.

You may be wondering why the name, what’s the story behind that? I really felt that Sarah Wheeler Photography needed a new name; a name that mean’t something to me, a name that came with a story and an identity. 

Why ‘Beneath The Brim’

"There is a moment where your              and your                 merge together and form a perfect world. That is heaven. And each heaven is              . It is the world of you. The land is filled with all you hold dear. And the sky is your                    ."
