thank you for using THE Australian Institute of Professional Photography'S SEARCH FOR A PRO FACILITY


As an AIPP Accredited Professional Photographer, I take great pride in creating engaging imagery for all of my photography clients. Can I help you too?

G'day, I'm Fred McKie. I'm Brisbane-based, but willing to travel - not only within Queensland, but also interstate or overseas if you require.

By way of introduction, the image of a man with camera is me; a "selfie" photographed with a gelled light to create the yellow background.

You've found me via the AIPP Search For A Pro facility, so you no doubt understand the importance of finding a truly professional photographer. That makes you a winner!

Why me?

I believe in creating imagery that is memorable, tells a story and generates emotion, but that is only the beginning. Here's what you get with me:

  • More than 20 years in content creation, including first photograph published editorially in 1996 (aged 18)
  • Experience across commercial, corporate and editorial photography
  • Specialising in creative photography on location, but also at home in the studio
  • Reputation for vibrant, high-clarity imagery
  • Awarded at the AIPP's Australian Professional Photography Awards and in international photography contests
  • Strong communicator who always works to gain a full understanding of each client's needs prior to undertaking any photography project and delivers exceptional customer service
  • Always aiming to exceed my clients' expectations
  • Keen attention to detail
  • Adhering to business best practices and respecting the industry code of ethics
  • Equally comfortable working autonomously to fulfill your brief, including ticking off a specific shot list if required, collaborating with an art director or other creatives, or taking full creative control if you prefer
  • Ability to draw on industry connections to pull together producers, stylists and make-up artists as required
  • Either in-house production or utilising highly talented professional retouchers to ensure beautifully polished image files
  • Effortless online proofing tool, dramatically simplifying the process of making image selections for you, including enabling you to review sets of images grouped by relevant keywords
  • Lengthy background in print journalism including newspaper/magazine production, so able to provide a full suite of creative services - also encompassing writing, editing and graphic design - if desired

The big picture

With clients ranging from creative agencies and multinational corporations to small businesses and individuals, as well as magazines, I am commissioned to work on a broad mix of assignments although my photography tends to be predominantly focused on people, places and spaces.

My experience encompasses the following and more:

Although primarily a location photographer, I do have studio space at Springfield Central.

No job is too big or too small.

What they say

Fred is proactive, making sure the project is well planned, for example identifying ways to enhance the shoot, handling permit and licensing requirements, weather planning and progress updates. Fred is enjoyable to work with, as he has the balance of great creative talent with commercial professionalism. We were initially attracted to his work and style as it clearly presents his flair, passion and commitment – and the results of our projects have met or exceeded our expectations.
— DesignSuite principal and creative director Wes Shaw
What a great experience to work with Fred McKie. As a high-end professional architectural interior designer, I required an expert to trust to represent an amazing design project that is dear to my heart. He went above and beyond and I am very happy I chose him to shoot the project - it paid off and the images are spectacular.
— Mark Gacesa of Ultraspace Architectural Interior Designers
Fred’s images are some of the best I have seen – I especially enjoy his commercial photography full of vibrant colours with a mix of crisp outlines and soft blurs. (After commissioning Fred) I was elated when our images were returned; the angles, the colours and the style of the shots that were taken were right on brief.
— Newground Property creative director Shenae Waters
We have used Fred two times to take pictures of our new hotel and restaurant. Both exterior, interior and food images. He is very professional, keep promises and deliver amazing images. I can highly recommend him for similar work!
— Best Western Plus Lake Kawana general manager John Örning
Fred conducted a full day and night shoot ... for the specialist Chinese tourism niche we are targeting. The professionalism Fred has shown us has been first class. Every detail ... right through to delivery has been a pleasure.
— Rumba Beach Resort director Bill Darby
