I have been a photographer for as long as I have been able to hold a camera – one of my earliest memories is of my father setting up a make shift studio in the lounge to take photos of me and my sister , then converting the kitchen into a dark room and printing till the early hours of the morning.

Photography is in my blood!  Dad’s lighting was basic but effective – what he did have was a passion for photography the same way I do now.

My Dad gave me a camera and one lens for my 13th birthday.  After I showed him my first roll of film, he gave me another 3 lenses and told me he thought I had a talent.  He said – now go prove it to the world.

The last 30 years of my working life has been consumed with the capturing of images. Commercially and for pleasure. This website is dedicated to both.

I have a wealth of experience in most types of photography, having worked in Europe, America, Asia, the South Pacific and Australia.

I spent a few years travelling the world working as a photographer on cruise ships, firstly in the Caribbean then in the South Pacific. I have captured postcards for the Gold coast and Vanuatu. Photographing weddings in Europe, the Caribbean, Jamaica, England and Australia, has also been a great experience.

I spent 8 years working for Canon Australia supporting professional photographers, professional photo retailers and newspapers, this has increased my technical knowledge to a level that allows me to train other photographers.

I am currently president of the PPAQ (Professional Photographers Association Queensland) This is the oldest photographic association in Australia.

I now live in Beenleigh – a great town where I am proud to be delivering local photographic services.  I am also still a frequent traveler to deliver quality photography and experienced photographic training at a number of locations across South East Queensland and beyond.
You can call me on 0411 497 679 or email info@vincentswiftphotography.com to discuss your photographic needs.  I look forward to your inquiry.
