Who is Brent?
I’m a full time AIPP accredited professional photographer, which means that I make my living only from photography.
I am a lover of great photography – this means that I love to look at great photographs – especially fine-art images & landscapes that really have an emotional impact on me. I love images that move me!
I also love the outdoors – especially the ocean, a good Thai curry, fun, adventure, travel and of course a custom hand-crafted espresso latte. Mostly I love to share my passion for photography with others.
Photography teacher & mentor
This is the reason why I have created this website, to teach you everything I know. I also teach, more of a “show and tell” at a school in my area.I love to share my knowledge & passion for photography with others.
Recently I was asked to become a photography business mentor for a young photography business owner, and I’m loving sharing my business experience with her too.
I run a number of photography workshops throughout the year, and love to help people understand the art of photography. This is my chance to interact with my students and get some valuable feedback, which I incorporate into my training videos.
Successful studio owner – Capture Imaging Photography
I started and run a small boutique photography studio near the beach in the quiet seaside town of Anna Bay, Port Stephens (about 2.5 hours drive north of Sydney, Australia).
My business is called Capture Imaging Photography, and is run by people who are passionate about creating personal art and bringing joy to all those we meet. I have hand picked my crew, and we all love what they do, as you will see once you come into our studio for a coffee and a chat.
Award winning photographer
How can you be sure that you are an expert in your field?
The best way to gauge this is to enter your very best prints into a photography competition. Not just any photography competition, but a professional photography competition where you compete against the best professional photographers in the country. I have been doing this for a number of years now and have been lucky enough to win a few awards.
With these awards comes points, and once you accumulate enough points in a certain time frame you become an associate with the AIPP, and then a Master Photographer. I received my associate status in 2011.
I love hanging out with other great photographers too!
The gang – me, Varina, Jay and Johny were having so much fun while recording the Ultimate Landscape Photography Course at Fingal Spit.
