Gold Coast Photography Expert Peter Crichton is an experienced full-time professional photographer of 25 years.

Peter now shares his photographic journey as one of Gold Coast’s most established and experienced photographers.

My career began as a school photographer, sidelining for 2 wedding studios on the weekend. I rapidly moved into more challenging fields, working full time for McGee’s Advertising in Richmond Melb, shooting business and real estate.

In 1996 I started a wedding & portrait photography studio on the Gold Coast.

By 2004 the studio had 9 part time photographers shooting 180 weddings a year as well as portraits, family, corporate events, corporate head shots and also running photography courses.

During this time we received 4 annual awards from ABIA Australian bridal industry association voted by the brides.

I also worked part time for AICA collage in Southport for 4 years as an Industry Representative. My job here was to evaluate photography students diploma submissions. I also worked there as a part time photography teacher.

Highlight events including shooting Hugh Jackman’s wedding, political coverage of John Howard, a dozen magazine covers and overseas corporate commissions. While covering shoots for famous people, my tip to my staff was to stay cool and don’t get star struck.

I was fortunate enough to have a brilliant teacher and mentor, James Barbone who became my best friend. James taught me the definition of a great photograph is EMOTION! This advice, I have committed to in each shoot, observing personalities, capturing emotion and bringing it alive in the finished product.

I’m so happy when a person, couple or family say “You have captured our true characters perfectly in that image”

Expressions of love and family are everywhere at a wedding, birthday or anniversary. Family photo shoots have lots of love and fun and the kids show so much expression.

It’s very satisfying to capture real love and emotion in a photograph that will live on in memories for ever. Just priceless!

Warm regards,

Peter Crichton
