We are always striving to provide our clients with the very best in image quality. Along with the very latest Canon 22 mega pixel camera we have also been using the new 50 mega pixel large format camera from Pentax.

Also we have just purchased a two meter Octa Light. We are one of only a handful of studios in WA to have one. I used one of these lights in New York last year and was very impressed with the beautiful soft quality of the light that it provides.
