hi, I'm dave gleeson, the guy behind the surfshots noosa cameras. and no, i don't sing for the screaming jets...
after a 20+ year career in newspapers and magazines I changed to freelance photography in 2015 and since then i've managed to succeed and flourish - so I must be doing something right!
most of my work is noosa/sunshine coast based however I also cover jobs all over SE Qld and interstate. and if you'd like to fly me to a 5 star destination to shoot for you, I'm up for that too!
my current client breakdown is around 1/3 events, 1/3 personal shoots (families/weddings etc) and 1/3 commercial work.
my commercial client list includes everyone from local stores to government departments & councils, event management companies and international businesses. I shoot around 20-30 weddings and a similar number of family sessions each year and I'm the official photographer at a range of high profile local events including Noosa Triathlon, Coastrek, Noosa Festival of Surfing, Noosa Food and Wine Festival, World Series Swim events, Noosa Classic, Ultraman Australia, Ironman 70.3, WSL and more.
I continue to shoot freelance photography work for several print publications and have had over 100 magazine and newspaper cover images published in the last few years.
i've built up my business quickly by being reliable, professional, versatile and easy to work with. so if you are looking for a reliable and adaptable photographer who can deliver great images quickly and cost-effectively with a smile, I'd love to help!
please get in touch via the email form below, or by phone if you prefer!
thanks, and i look forward to shooting for you soon.
