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 went fulltime freelance in 2015 and despite the sunshine coast being home to more photographers per square inch than anywhere else on earth, 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.  alternatively 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 list includes everyone from local businesses, government departments, event managers and international companies and I'm the official photographer at a range of high profile action sport events including Noosa Triathlon, Coastrek, Noosa Festival of Surfing, World Series Swims, Ultraman Australia and more.

I freelance for several print publications and have had over 100 magazine/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 versatile 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.
