What do you say about someone who is an iconic photographer in Brisbane?

Craig is an avid shooter, who is not only highly experienced but is a pleasure to work with and always satisfies beyond the desire of every client. He has worked for a vast and exceptional list of top Australian clients.

In 1982 Craig, a fully fledged photographer, moved the photographic business to Brisbane from Sydney.

Craig moved to his present studio to Bowen Hills in 2011. The 2 level 180 square meter studio is well equipped with full kitchen facilities, roller-door access and is fully air conditioned. 

Throughout his many years as a photographer Craig has gained a reputation for shooting just about anything both precisely and with little fuss. He can take a shoot from layout stage to finished image - on time, on budget and always with a smile! 

Whether he is dealing with the intricate macro world of jewellery photography, moshing with a film crew trying to get that perfect action shot, shooting food or directing talent, all agree that Craig will always be a pleasure. Craig believes that "As an Advertising Photographer the best shots are more often taken with the ears than the camera". Craig is in tune with the emotional and practical side of taking the perfect shot, so the results are always brilliant beyond vision.
