Environmental portraiture in exotic and difficult situations is our specialty. Andrew strives to find balance and harmony of people in the scene with the beautiful views around them. Andrew operates in the Asia-Pacific region, but is based in Melbourne Australia. See Schedule & Bookings for more details.
We do the hard work, so you can just enjoy what's important for you.
Andrew will be in Melbourne Australia later in 2019. He will be setting up his new office there, and is excited about new opportunities and prospects he will find in that great city. Andrew has lived there before, but all his old photos of the city are on film and in storage. New ones will eventually bless this page.
Memories fade; but photos won't. Selfies are fine for sharing "here-and-now" moments, but they are not the photos you print out, they're not the photos you hang on the walls. Smartphone print quality is usually so bad, it's not even worth trying. With our professional experience, we will make a travel magazine or photo book to help you remember and value your special getaway, engagement photos, or once-in-a-lifetime trip. We will take high quality photos and collate the best ones into a magazine or book that you will be proud of, and will be the centre-piece of memories and conversations for decades to come. Wall prints (framed or unframed) are options too.
Costs includes: Shoot time, equipment, editing, post processing time, travel time and expenses (national or international will be listed seperately in the invoice), photo book layout and cover design, and delivery, and long term digital storage.

The hard cover version of a photo book / photo album that will be made for you.
Payment: Sadly, there's a few people who spoil it for all of us. Consequently these policies must be adhered to. A non-refundable 50% deposit must be paid within 12 hours after bookings are confirmed, and the remainder by the day of the shoot. All private individuals must pay via PayPal or in-person using our Square payment system (accepts Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Australian EFTPOS; paid in Australian dollars). Corporate may pay by bank transfer. *Additional fees may apply.
Weather: All attempts will be made to do the shoot taking advantage of all kinds of weather conditions. However, if the weather is so bad, the shoot will be postponed. If the client cannot attend the postponed date and time, all fees except the deposit will be refunded.
No-show: Uncool. Just uncool. Please contact us if you are late, delayed, or other; we usually can help you out some how. The deposit is non-refundable. Some times we cannot reschedule due to our booking demands.
Liability: We are not responsible for any accidents or injuries that may occur during the shoot. Whilst all care is taken by us, we expect you to also put safety first. We also expect you to operate your equipment within your compentency level.

We occassionally update your cover options. Make a note of which one you prefer and tell us. The final cover design you receive will be a little different, because it will have your own portrait on the front, and so text will have to be adjusted according to the picture used.
