Professional Photography

  • Weddings
  • Portraiture
  • Corporate
  • Field Assignments







Brian Hartigan - the Big Irish Git - is highly a skilled and experienced photographer, especially when dealing with human subjects. He was trained by and has extensive experience in the military and is therefore adept at capturing people at their best, in often difficult and demanding circumstances.

While the average corporate event will, hopefully, not be as dramatic or stressful as a peacekeeping mission or military exercise, Brian Hartigan nonetheless approaches every assignment with the same precision, preparation and commitment as though his life depended on the result - and, of course, his professional life is on the line every time.

Brian Hartigan is available for any job in the Canberra region and often travels around Australia and the World on assignment.

Most larger assignments of just a few days will attract our standard daily rates. However, fees for major assignments - especially overseas - can be negotiated.
Cost will depend on many factors and in some cases - for example if uncomfortable living conditions or danger is involved - may even be considerably higher than the standard daily rate.

Assigning to any project will not only ensure a high-quality result, but can often be more cost effective than assigning a staff member.

Appropriate attribution (in the form "Photo by") would be appreciated, where applicable and appropriate.

The photographer does however retain the right to retain copies of all images taken for a client and to reproduce or resell 'generic' images.
This does not apply to images that are client-specific, for example images that depict the client's corporate logo.
