Stewart Gould Photography
Stewart, a vivid and adventurous person was formerly trained by the Royal Australian Air Force as a professional photographer in 1996. This gave him industry recognised qualifications in both photography and videography. Over the years, Stewart actively attends seminars and courses to keep up to date with the technological and fashionable changes in the industry. Armed with the decades of experience and up to date with modern times, Stewart is highly sought after not only for his quality photography services, but also for his energetic delivery of photographic training courses.
Stewart a trained helicopter rescue crewman, rock climber, vertical rescue specialist and para glider and fixed aeroplane pilot is thoroughly at peace in difficult, obscure situations. Due to his plethora of training in various avenues, he is experienced enough to bring in heavy duty equipment to place himself in rather obscure vantage points to get the best photo for his clients. Such as shots off cliff faces, over raging rivers, off bridges. He places himself in the calculated high risk situations, whilst his clients are safe, if this is to obtain the perfect shot - then this is how he achieves what he does - the PERFECT SHOT.
Behind The Lens
Stewart delivers exceptional quality and artistic images through detailed planning, commitment to striving for the best and perfection in his images, then delivering in a time frame that is always sooner than planned. He brings in more equipment and lighting for even a simple shoot than most photographers do, as he wants his images to look the best each time, not just a photo but a piece of art (depending on what he is shooting at the time of course). He is not one to say “We will fix that later in photoshop” if it can be captured correctly at the time even if it takes a few moments longer. Photoshop is a tool used to fix images if it’s impossible at the time of exposure and if they require enhancement that he can not humanly create on location at the time of exposure.

Our wish is for you to walk away with a smile and goose bumps, over the overall experience you have encountered from start to delivery of your images.
We wish to become well known throughout Australia by our peers and clients. To give other photographers the aspiration to view our work and regard our work as a benchmark to achieve for themselves.
