A Wagga woman is among hundreds of fellow female photographers uniting for a national symposium promoting equality and inclusion in the arts.
The Loud and Luminous project celebrates the important contributions of contemporary women photographers in Australia in light of International Women's Day.
Tina Bingham has been a wedding photographer for more than 10 years now and said she was "incredibly honoured" to be a part of the exhibition.
The theme for 2020 is equality, echoing the United Nations sustainable development goals of 'gender equality' and 'I am generation equality'.
Ms Bingham's work will focus on equality for transgender people bisexuals living in the bush.
"I just so happened to meet Holly Conroy recently and I was asked to do a shoot for her for a magazine so when I got asked to do this afterwards I thought it lined up perfectly," she said.
"There's this whole potential for someone like Holly to tell her epic story of overcoming barriers and showing what a difference it's made to her life in embracing who she is."

The photography exhibition will allow Ms Bingham to display her work focusing on Wagga's LGBTIQ icon Holly Conroy.
"Holly's story is so inspiring to others to I really want to show that through my photos," she said.
"But there will be a really broad range of photographers so you get to see all these different passions and stories in the one place."
Project co-curator Melissa Anderson said one of the main aims of Loud and Luminous is to bring people together for an inclusive discussion that celebrates diversity and promotes equality, equity and cultural change.
"This will be the third year that Australian photographers have come together to make a strong statement through their work," she said.
"The stories told in Loud and Luminous 2020 will address important social issues, such as what equality is in global, gender, economic, social, cultural and environmental concepts-and what changes we need to make to achieve it."
