Photographs During Covid19 Pandemic

Updated: Apr 18, 2020

During the covid19 pandemic most commercial work for photography in Sydney has been put on hold and for good reason. Being a portrait photographer and working closely with people I haven't been able to work but I my burning desire to photograph has led me to a place where I am filling up memory cards faster than when Australia was "open"

I decided to write this blog to showcase some of work I've been creating at home.

I work with a lot of creative people from musicians to actors and I urge you all use this time to develop artistically.

Each day I wake up at a different time and feeling a little different about the situation. The only thing that stays consistent is my urge to shoot photos and express my thoughts through the medium.

How will the future look?

As soon as life returns to how we once knew it I am happy to announce I will be back in the studio and shooting portraits and headshots.

While creating these concepts and self portraits are a lot of fun and fill a void, my passion will always be helping people progress in their career and creative endeavours. I hope you are well and staying safe.


Thanks for stopping by.


Michael Quelch.
