I’m Kirrily.

about me

Portrait hunter. Image lover.

I have a fascination with people from all walks of life. I am an environmental portrait photographer. That’s a fancy way to describe someone who takes pictures of folks in their natural habitat. There are wonderfully talented people who do beautiful studio work – it’s just not my jam. I like to shoot where you live, work and play, surrounded by all the stuff that makes up your life. It helps with the story telling. And that’s what good photography is all about – telling your story.

I have been shooting portrait and editorial imagery all over the world for around 20 years. I am a graduate of the New York Institute of Photography and have a Bachelors degree in Business. My work is featured globally in newspapers, magazines and books. I’ve been a contributor to numerous online blogs and photozines throughout the years. My stock images are available for purchase on Alamy.

Due to my Aussie upbringing, my approach to life and especially to photography is relaxed and fun. I love collaborating on interesting projects so do please get in touch if have an idea to discuss. 

And thanks for getting this far – you’re a legend.

How I work.

Shooting Style

My shoots are a relaxed partnership with you. If we could have a coffee and a little chat before we get started, we’ll make some awesome photos together. I am client led – this is your show.  Whatever you choose to wear, you should feel comfortable and gorgeous in it.


Where ever you feel most comfortable. Your environment is an extension of your personality. I love to shoot where you work, rest, play. We’ll do a bit of styling and editing to maximise the personality in your photos before we shoot. The choices are infinite.

What to Wear

The obvious answer is… whatever you feel comfortable in. You know that already but it is actually really important. Most photographers will recommend plain-ish outfits, something in navy or white, not too many patterns or too much going on etc. I actually prefer colour and crazy but it really depends on you, your location and what message you’re trying to convey. What is key is we get your personality shining through.

Digital Editing

I’ll edit your photos to give you a consistent look & feel. I’m happy to digitally remove that unfortunately timed pimple and stray dog hairs on your shirt but please don’t ask me make you younger/older, shorter/taller, more beautiful/less tired – or anything else that fundamentally changes how you look. You’re perfect the way you are. Saying that, if there is something really important you would like me to digitally manipulate, then we should chat about it.

I shoot on Canon and I always work with Canon Professional EF Prime lenses. I am a member of Canon Professional Services programme. I almost always shoot with natural light – you can’t beat it. I have some natural light enhancers (a.k.a reflectors) and some artificial light too should we need it.

Kirrily has the rare quality of being both highly creative, and unfailingly precise. She took care of every aspect of photography for our business, from handling fashion shoots with children and adults, to meticulously creating product photography for our online shop. She has a fantastic eye, and is able to work with your vision for your brand to get the look and feel for photography you need. I can’t recommend her highly enough.
