“Theresa and I have been involved with photography for more than 15 years, and have worked as professionals for over 10 years.”
Our professional journey began as wedding photographers. Ten years ago I was approached by Danielle to shoot for a new magazine called Highlife Down Living. What an opportunity; I was honoured and jumped at the chance. Theresa and I continued to contribute to Highlife for several years, while starting and running our own photography business with our business partners at Salt Studios. As our personal business was growing, we found it hard to find time to contribute to the magazine and decided to pull the pin on it.
After many amazing years with Salt Studios, Theresa and I decided we needed a change and re-focus on our photography careers. As a result, we left Salt Studios with the idea that the way forward for us was to specialise in our personal passions within photography, rather than being jacks-of-all-trades, masters of none. We decided that if we focused all our energy on what we are passionate about, we can become great at that.
Theresa has turned her hand to becoming the best fashion photographer she can be. And is exceling at it. She has been published in several international magazines and has landed back shooting for Highlife Downs Living magazine as the fashion photographer, and is having a blast doing it.
I have been focused on conceptual commercial photography, making images ranging from band album covers to commercial advertising campaigns for some of Australia’s biggest universities.
The future looks bright and we can’t wait to see what presents itself through our viewfinders over the next few years.
