About The Photographer


 David is a Melbourne based photographer  inspired by light, detail, colour, movement and energy.   With a particular focus on creating beautiful portraits for expecting mothers I also love to shoot Fashion -both current and vintage, where great lighting and perfect styling and makeup are key contributors to the final results.

I am open to working on collaborative projects with imaginative people but as I commit fully to each project, I expect the same of those I work with. I am inspired by the creativity, bold lighting and thought provoking images of Australian photographers such as  Jerry Ghionis and Peter Brew-Bevan and many years experience in lighting design for theatre and dance has led to photography becoming my primary medium  for capturing  mood and evoking a response .

For expecting mothers and children I prefer  shooting in an environment where everyone feels comfortable - whether in your own home, the beach, local park or playground - to capture not just  a moment in time but also a snippet of who the subject is as a person.

When shooting fashion and model portfolios I prefer imaginative  themes  across a range of genres to  create something beyond the expected -  for example pin-up, retro, burlesque and other more 'theatrical' styles.  I may consider TFP on a case by case basis if the opportunity allows me to work with like-minded models, makeup-artists and stylists to create something special.

I only work on a limited number of commissions at any one time. This allows me to focus on providing highly personalised services  for each and every shoot.

David Hanrahan Photography is based in the South East Suburbs of Melbourne  Australia.
