Abhinav is a Sydney-based photographer and filmmaker with a passion for weddings and commercial work. 

My relatively short photography history has seen me capture a wide range of subjects from friends and family to the northern lights in Norway. Working through my media production company, I have had the privilege to create captivating imagery and work with some amazing clients. 

Nowadays, I spend most of my time focusing on videography and filmmaking, producing a great deal of real estate videography and wedding films. 

I look forward to meeting you at an event to capture amazing images and produce captivating films!

What is in your camera bag?

Most of the time, my camera bag will consist of:

- A7iii + A7Rii + A7Siii (Coming Soon!!!)

- 16-35 Lens, 50mm Lens, 85mm Lens

- Tripod and gimbal

- Audio gear (lav mics, shotgun mic)

- A few filters


What is your go to in your Alpha kit and why?

My go to combo has to be the Sony A7iii coupled with a Sony 35mm F1.4 lens, providing such a versatile duo to shoot all types of photos and videos.

Most memorable moment shooting with Alpha?

Having seen so many breathtaking images of the unique Kirkjufell mountain over the years, I was determined to capture my own. On my trip to Iceland in the middle of winter, driving for a couple of hours through an intense blizzard, unable to see the car ahead apart from a faint glow of brake lights, I made it to the base of the mountain at the Snæfellsnes peninsula. Conditions seemingly worsened as I arrived and with heavy rain and snowfall, I ventured on to climb the mountain. I set up my tripod, slid on some ND filters and composed my shot, framing two small waterfalls in the foreground with the unique mountain in the background and captured one of my favourite images to date.
