I'm a people person as well as a photographer, and I have inevitably found myself in the world of portrait photography, in which I couldn't be happier.


My early photographic years consisted of shooting landscapes on the Australian Gold Coast and taking on freelance landscape commissions. My desire to transition to professional portrait photography led me to Sydney, where I took the risk of moving with nothing but a bag of clothes, gear, and a room in a hostel with two weeks' rent covered. It turned out to be the best decision I have ever made.

I have a wealth of experience working with people from a range of backgrounds and demographics, from those who have never sat for a portrait, sports icons, politicians, actors, models, business veterans, and young entrepreneurs. I am grateful for the people I have met throughout my career.


I have been fortunate enough to continue to work with clients such as Fairfax Media, The Australian Financial Review, Sydney Morning Herald, The Big Issue Magazine, ESL Gaming, Ordre / The Powerhouse Museum, The McGrath Foundation and Lion co and many more including private portrait commissions.


I take the time to prepare for each shoot, both before and after, in post-production. Preparation is crucial to a successful portrait, whether it's a headshot or an editorial


Feel free to contact me with any inquiries you may have about your shoot or project.


Michael Quelch.
