George is one of Australia's Top Portrait Photographers and is the founder and driving force behind Headshot Factory.
A career professional photographer with extensive experience in all facets of the media industry, George has worked for many years over multiple magazine titles including Harpers Bazaar, Rolling Stone, Top Gear, Belle, Good Weekend, Gourmet Traveller, Travel + Leisure to mention a few. Six of his portraits reside in the permanent collection of the National Portrait Gallery in Canberra with subjects such as Lee Lin Chin and David Gulpulil.
He is a previous winner of the $10,000 Olive Cotton Award for Portraiture and PDN World in Focus Human Condition Portrait and has been a finalist in the Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize NPG London, Moran Contemporary Photographic Prize, Head On Portrait Prize and the Josephine Uhlrick Memorial Portrait Prize. He was Australia’s top travel photographer 2008/2011 as voted by industry peers.
A definite highlight as he describes was the pressing of a collectable One Dollar coin with his portrait of Professor Fred Hollows by the Royal Australian Mint.
There have been so many interesting people whom George has had the privelige of shooting, many actors & celebrities but the majority of them have been normal just like you and me. So basically your in very good hands when you're in front of George's lens!
