Photographing people with purpose
G'day, I'm Fred McKie, a Brisbane-based AIPP-accredited professional photographer with a reputation for creating vibrant images for my clients - including portraits created with purpose.
From creating actor's headshots, building model portfolios and promo shoots for musicians to fitness portraits for athletes and bodybuilders or business profile shots of entrepreneurs and executives, I see my job either as uncovering the essence of the subject or creating the desired mood in the image.
I shoot portraits with natural light or battery-powered strobe lights, mostly for commercial or corporate purposes but occasionally with an editorial slant. I've also volunteered my time for the AIPP Reflections project paying tribute to Australia's last remaining World War II veterans.
Clients are always given the option of professional hair-styling and make-up, which is definitely recommended for superior results - although digital post-production ensures delivery of beautifully polished image files in any regard.
My clients also benefit from an effortless online proofing tool that dramatically simplifies the process of choosing images for retouching and supply following a photoshoot, including enabling you to review sets of images grouped by relevant keywords. (Curious to see this in action? Be sure to let me know ... I'd be happy to send you a link to a sample proofing gallery or provide a demonstration!)
