Our strength is in capturing your strategic and creative intent, creating a feeling that tells your story and achieves your objectives.

We sit down with you to truly understand your brand and what you’re trying to achieve through your advertising campaign. The result is advertising photography that supports your creative vision, connects with your audience, and achieves results.

We have a huge amount of experience working within an existing brief and alongside your marketing team to ensure your campaign stands out from the rest.

With beautiful imagery that works together with the campaign creative, our advertising photography will exceed your expectations, every time.

As Canberra’s only full-service photography studio, we are production specialists. We are equally adept at managing every aspect of a shoot as we are collaborating with other creatives to shoot a creative vision. We are passionate about perfection, so we often engage and manage specialised production teams to achieve a specific vision, which allows us to tailor our team to the unique requirements of your project.

Concept Development and Creative Direction

We love working closely with our clients, exploring concepts that will guide the creative direction of the project.

Sourcing, Engaging and Managing Talent

Whether professional models or real-world people, Canberra locals or talent from around Australia, we can source, engage and manage the right talent for your project.

Engaging and Managing Specialised Production Teams

We know that you need the perfect team to make your project successful. We tailor our creative team for each project. This could include hair and makeup artists, stylists, photography assistants, lighting assistants, producers, and art directors.

Sourcing and Managing Locations

We want the perfect backdrop for your project, whether that’s our specialised photography studio in Canberra, a picturesque outdoor location, or a bustling city scape. With our eye for detail, your location will create the perfect foundation for your images to shine.

On-Shoot Production

We manage every facet of shoot day, ensuring the right people are in the right place, at the right time.


On the shoot, we apply a colour balance, exposure adjustment, image sharpening, and curves and contrast adjustment, to allow you to see the direction your photos are taking and make changes on the fly to ensure your vision is fulfilled. In post-production, editing can range from simply removing blemishes through to comprehensive re-touching and digital manipulation.



Our world is saturated by images. Advertising photography needs to be on brand and on message to break through the noise and into the hearts and minds of your audience. As Canberra’s leading provider of campaign photography services, we love the feeling we get when your campaign is launched and achieves your objective. Your success is our success.


The best architectural photographers encapsulate the spirit of architecture so that it is much more than just a building. We look for interesting falls of light and striking geographical patterns, highlighting the way the building fits into its environment. Architecture photos can be powerful representations of time and place, and we pride ourselves on capturing the most striking and memorable images.


Portraiture has long been an artform, and we’re thrilled to be continuing this tradition as a specialist commercial portrait photographers.
