ROCCO ANCORA

Rocco Ancora is a four times AIPP wedding photographer of the year and has also featured prominently in Wedding and Portrait Photographers International awards list. An additional accolade Rocco prizes is the Ilford Trophy for the highest scoring monochrome print in Australia, for 2007.

Many of Rocco’s images are classical and romantic, imbued with distinctive and evocative lighting, similar to that found in the wonderfully crafted movies from the 1940’s and 50’s. Rocco’s images express an incredibly rich and vibrant insight into the emotions of love, humor and intimacy.

JASIN BOLAND

After an early career in photojournalism my motion picture career began on low budget Australian television and film productions before Jasin was given the opportunity to work on big budget films for some of Hollywood’s A-list studio’s, producers, directors and actors. His little family spends up to 10 months of the year on the road so a love for his work and its environment is paramount.

Jasin consider himself lucky enough to work on films that he loves to watch, having the opportunity to shoot some action sequences on Skyfall which was the culmination of a lifelong dream.

MARK WATSON

Australian adventure photographer (and occasional journalist) Mark Watson is a liar. He suggests his job is not so glamorous, but drop him an email and his out of office auto response will inform he’s heli-skiing New Zealand or trekking Patagonia. In downtime he surfs and mountain bikes Sydney’s Northern Beaches or can be spied drinking cafe latte’s on the beachfront when he should be editing photos. He is a Nikon Ambassador and Red Bull Australia’s No.1 photographer, … and after a few Corona’s, admits, I photograph cool people, in cool places, doing cool things! Quickly followed by the disclaimer it’s not always exciting … But always said with a mischievous grin.
