About

Self-Portrait in Black and White
Shutter and Pen is the website of CJ Levinson. I’m a freelance writer and photographer living near Newcastle, Australia.

I’ve been interested in photography for most of my life but only really started taking it seriously in 2011 when I bought my first SLR. Since then I’ve sold photos to websites and magazines, won two photo competitions and started doing portraits and events for clients.

I’ve also been writing semi-professionally for almost fifteen years, a mixture of fiction, articles and poetry. My first story was published by ScienceFiction.Com when I was fifteen and since then I’ve had another seven publications. I’m currently working on my first novel.
