Biography Sue Smith
Adelaides Sue Smith Photography (ASSP)
Recipient of multiple international awards in photography, watercolours and computer-created art
Sue was born in the early 50’s in Germany. Since early childhood she was fascinated to scroll through photo albums, artwork magazines and watching her daddy working in the darkroom.
Sue was four years old as she got her first camera and after being back from photowalks with her father, an architect and engineer, she couldn’t await being in the darkroom and seeing him developing her work. It seems she did well as her daddy began to teaching her proper in photography and the development of her works. This times were the foundation stone of Sue’s career when she decided to set her focus for earning a living on Architectural, Industrial and Aerial Photography.
One station in her working life was freelance photojournalist (newspapers, youth magazines). One of her concert photographs got album cover of a then popular music star. This years intensified the stories her photos was -and are- telling.
Carefree times followed times where Sue had to realise that life is ‘no walk in the park’, private events made it impossible doing good photos so she was again creating paintings as a better outlet to cope through the times of grief.
Despite some deep hits one thing since her early years has never changed: her passion for the beauty of the world around us which she shows us in her photographs and paintings, but she also does not hesitate to capture also environmental and humanity problems in her photos.
What also hasn’t changed is her sense of justice, caring for the people around her, the sick, the handicaped, the ones with mental health problems, the youth.
She is a narrator, a dreamer, a thinker, and when her works make viewers to slow down, seeing, recognising, feeling emotions, relating their own stories, Sue has reached her goal.
Until her semi-retirement in January 2018 Sue owned the ASSP Gallery Port Adelaide. She had in 2016 two 8-weeks solo exhibitions, several displays. 2018 was the first time participating in the SALA Festival as an exhibitor instead providing the venue space.
Sue supervised very successful for a 2016 Artshow the installation of more than 550 artworks in different styles and sizes.

Aim of this page is to promote my city Port Adelaide and its surrounds and SA in general with its beautiful coastline, rugged Flinders Ranges, Red Center, interesting inland towns and some unique businesses. As far as possible Sue will add to her own photographs.

When we mention in one breath a few things like BAVARIAN SCHLOSS HISTORY OF VINES STEPPING STONE OF WINE MAKING 5 STAR WINERY and SALA 2018 VENUE then we are telling you about the CHATEAU TANUNDA
The Château was built in the late 1880‘s and is home to some of the earliest planting of vines in the Barossa Valley: dating back to the 1840‘s!
Château Tanunda is also Australia’s largest and oldest wine Chateau and a designated monument in the State Heritage Register.
It was during a morning bike ride in 1998 that John Geber saw “it” the first time. “It” was Château Tanunda in Australia’s Barossa Valley, a majestic Bavarian-style Château and in its prime the largest winery in the Southern Hemisphere. He bought it the very next day. We like in a short video clip introduce you to the owner of this beautiful place, his family and it’s Sunken Garden
Another remarkable point beside the fantastic wines is that
Château Tanunda’s success was the Barossa’s success: For years it was the heart of Barossa wine-making, on the rafters you see some of the most famous names in Australian wine history, past and present, all of whom have worked at the Château. On their website you can see some of this names, we recommend to set this wineries also on your list to visit.
