Mackintosh Photography photographs business Headshots Sydney and Corporate Portraits in Sydney.Read More
Christmas is fast approaching. What will you do or buy differently this year for your loved ones and family? There is nothing more unique a stunning than one of our family portraits. Mackintosh Photography has Gift Vouchers available for purchase from $200. And it includes a $100 photography credit to go towards purchase Art Prints and Albums.
Just like the Gosling family featured below in this blog. They absolutely loved the photography experience. Because it was genuinely fun and relaxed. Not at all what they were expecting. That's because Justin Mackintosh our principal photographer has been photographing people and capturing their portrait for nearly 15 years. He know's how to make people feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera.
Oh and dont forget the most cherished family member can also be in the portrait session. The family dog. Pet photography is pretty cool and fun too.
We can use your family home for the photography location, as this makes for a more of a personal touch. Or if you prefer a natural setting we often use some of the wonderful local Sydney Harbour side parks in Balmain, Birchgrove and Rozelle in Sydney's Inner West. We often photograph parents and families who came from overseas and they love to get the Sydney Harbour Bridge or the Opera House in the background. After all it is a beautiful location.
Photographers love to travel. I love it because it keeps me fresh and energised. Been a professional architectural and portrait photographer in Sydney can get pretty busy and it's great to photograph new projects without the normal constraints of my everyday photography commissions. I enjoy our regular corporate photography and shooting for our architect practices in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne too of course. People and Buildings is what I capture well. However it's interesting even when travelling with my camera in foreign countries, the experience I've gain over the years shooting the studios everyday assignments can still be applied to my personal photography.
In February this year we went to Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia and Siem Reap in Cambodia. In fact, it was so good I wanted to go back again. So I did in September and it was well worth it.
Kuala Lumpur is a developing city with a great mix of traditional buildings, super skyscrapers and giant luxurious shopping centres. I've been there a number of times before and I'm always looking to discover something new or go back to a previous location and see how I can photograph it differently, which is a fun photography challenge. This time especially wanted to go to the tradition village of Kampung Baru. It's a Malay enclave in central Kuala Lumpur. One of the most valuable tracts of land in the capital, it has been estimated to be worth up to US$1.4 billion. Kampung Baru's elders have turned developers away, saying they want to preserve their ethnic Malay lifestyle. Hopefully my photographs have captured the spirit and culture of the local village. You must go there for wonderful traditional Malay food and to meet the wonderful friendly locals. It would be great shame to see this been wiped out by greedy developers.
After Kuala Lumpur we went to Siem Reap in Cambodia, it was the wet season so it was very green and with a fewer people around too. The complete opposite from our previous trip in February which was the dry season and masses of tourists. It was great to be able to concentrate more on photographing the stunning architecture of the Khmer temples built in the 12th century. The energetic town of Siem Reap is the gateway to the many Khmer temples in the region. Including Angkor Wat, which is the largest religious monument in the world, with the site measuring 162.6 hectares. Siem Reap is a vibrant busy town. They even have a street called Pub Street, naturally it's full of tourists all hours of the day and night. Almost anything is for sale here. I especially enjoyed the local markets, a photographers dream to shoot.
A couple of weeks ago the studio was commissioned by Conrad Gargett Architects to capture professional portraits of their additional architects and support staff. The reason for the photoshoot was because the firm had recently merged with two other Award Winning Firms. So naturally a location shoot to their office was required to photograph 25 people. It often surprises me after I have photographed someone, that they say how fun it was and not at all intimidating. How do I manage that? Well that's my secrete weapon. Nah not really, it's simple just be engaging and interested in them. Luckily I have the natural ability to get along well with all type of people. To put it simply, I'm a people person.
Conrad Gargett is at the forefront of architecture in Australia. A progressive firm with a vibrant legacy of prominent and enduring designs.

The photography studio has been working with Altis Architecture for a couple of years now. Each architectural project is different with its own style and challenges to capture the essence of the architectural design. Dee Why RSL has been greatly updated throughout its 5 stage Master Plan. It is now a progressive, diverse and contemporary RSL Club that can hold its own amongst the local beachside cafes and restaurant competition. This is supported by the edgy architectural designs and the quality of the service provided at the club. This interior photography commission was designed to showcase the Uber lighting design throughout the two areas of the club. Altis Architecture collaborated with Malaya Blonde, extraordinary lighting designers to achieve these stunning images shown here.

Last week the photography studio had the challenge to photograph for one our own clients, Trade Advertising. We normally photograph for their clients. But as every great businessman knows you need to stay fresh and up to date with your businesses marketing and PR material, including your website and staff portraits. Trade Advertising is boutique full service advertising agency based in Double Bay Sydney. The agency works with small and large businesses that need to look great and produce high quality online and printed marketing collateral. They not only design but they also work with their clients on the business's branding and strategy. Trade Advertising also specialises in the building and hardware industries, for the likes of 3M, James Hardie and contemporary furniture designer Fanuli.
Their photography brief to the studio was based on three words, Dynamic, Creative and Casual. I believe the images speak for themselves. Mackintosh Photography loves collaborating and working together with our clients to create and produce professional photography that makes the client look their best. Whether it's corporate portraits, Headshots, Architectural assignments or photographing your next high profile business event or conference. Mackintosh Photography makes sure you and your business always looks amazing.
If your needing to update your staff corporate portraits and business profile or you are requiring some portraits that are something a bit left of centre. Mackintosh Photography is more than happy to have a chat on the phone.
Each year Mackintosh Photography is commissioned by Leichhardt Council to photograph local artist's in the Rozelle, Balmain, Leichhardt and Lilyfield suburbs in Sydney's Inner West.
"I love crafting these candid portraits of the artist. Often they are shy at first but then warm up a bit when we casually chat about their painting, sculptures, ceramics or art installations. The galleries and studios are in old disused buildings, warehouses or even their own homes. Fascinating to visit. "It's a very rewarding and creative photographic assignment." - Justin Mackintosh, Photographer.
