There is a variety of Sydney photographers available: from corporate events to weddings and fashion photoshoots. With the popularisation of digital photography, photography as a hobby or even as a business is booming. The difficult choice of discerning photographers is largely dependant on the client's knowledge of photography as well as knowledge of what they really want. Sydney has plenty of possible photography locations and this article will highlight a few of them.
Here are a few outdoor locations that wedding Sydney photographers use. These locations may be a great idea to hold a wedding or to simply visit for a quick photoshoot right after the wedding ceremony. Near the city, Sydney photographer's love using the steps and the columns of the building of NSW State library (North side). Alternatively they would use the Art Gallery of NSW just down the road. These locations are just a stones throw away from Sydney Botanical gardens - another photographers' haunt. From there you can get the overused Sydney Opera house on Sydney Harbour bridge photo.
Towards the East, Sydney photographers go to visit the beaches of Bondi or Bronte. Slightly north and you’ve got North Head and Watson's bay with the fantastic sunsets and the famous view of yachts. On the lower North Shore you can go to Balls Head and get a fantastic shot of the reverse view of the Opera house on Sydney Harbour bridge. Upper north shore have their parks and the northern beaches have - guess what? Their beaches. Western Sydney to South Western Sydney residents have access to local parks and reserves. Bankstown has a huge nature reserve which is popular for those wedding shots. Auburn also have their own botanical gardens.
Corporate Sydney photographers are easy to find. Simply look up the Yellow Pages and there are many of them: especially as a result of the latest boom in digital photography. Corporate events are mainly held in Sydney's major hotel chains as well as local halls and custom built conference areas like Darling Harbour. Major hotels in Sydney that are popular with the corporate crowd are the 4 Seasons hotel, Hilton Hotel and Intercontinental Hotel.
Fashion Sydney photographers are also sought actively. Multinational companies, as well as fashion labels that don't even sell to Australia, come to Sydney to have their catalogue photographed in this beautiful city. They use locations similar to the locations for wedding photography. It is also common for these companies to hire local talent.
