I’m a Sunshine Coast photographer with more than 25 years’ behind the lens. My love affair with photography started as a teenager at Alex skatepark and I haven’t stopped. What began as a bit of fun led to being published in skateboard and snowboarding magazines. My interest didn’t stop there. I’m fortunate to be able to call myself a well rounded photographer. Having experienced many areas of the industry, from the pressure of internationally significant news events to the stillness of architecture and design.
Creating compelling images that tell my clients stories is what drives me. Over the past two decades, I’ve been fortunate to work with incredible clients across Australia and beyond. My work has been featured on the front page of most Australian newspapers, in major magazines, on gallery walls, and in powerful campaigns for some of the world’s most recognisable brands. I’ve worked with government departments, media outlets, corporate clients and individuals, amassing experience and knowledge across all areas of photography.
So why choose Stefan? I think it comes down to confidence. Having worked with hundreds of clients, I understand how daunting it can be to find the right photographer. Of course, you want exceptional shots – but you also want someone who is flexible, reliable, creative and efficient. Someone who can interpret your vision (even when you’re not sure what that looks like). You also want a photographer who makes the process easy and enjoyable. That’s what I deliver. Great photos and a stress-free experience you can rely on.
I work with you to tailor a strategy based on your goals, budget and resources. I understand that not everyone thinks visually, so I provide options and examples to ensure we’re always on the same page.
When it comes to your final shots, I’m not satisfied unless you are. Here’s what some of my happy clients have to say about my work.
