hi, I'm dave gleeson, the guy behind the surfshots noosa cameras. and no, i don't sing for the screaming jets...
I'm a husband to Pauline, dad to Katie and Mitchell, and we all live in Sunrise Beach, near Noosa. we also have a crazy Border Collie / Kelpie called Roxy
i started surfshots noosa in 2012 as a sideline photography project alongside my fulltime media work but at the start of 2015 I went 100% freelance. 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 shoot commercial jobs in South East Queensland and beyond. and if you'd like to fly me to a 5 star destination to shoot for you, I'm up for that too!
my client list includes everyone from local businesses to blue chip companies and I'm the official photographer / videographer at a range of high profile action sport events here on the Sunshine Coast. i'm also the head photographer at NOOSA TODAY newspaper and i freelance for several other print publications. i've built up my business quickly over the last few years by being reliable, professional, easy to deal with, cost effective and taking great photos!
i have all professional aspects of the job covered, from the latest state of the art Nikon bodies (D5, D4, D750) and lenses (16mm-500mm), off camera studio lights, underwater housings, drone technology (Phantom 4 Professional), relevant licensing and insurances and more.
so if you are looking for a reliable and versatile photographer in the Sunshine Coast area, who can deliver great images quickly and cost-effectively EVERY TIME with a smile, I'd love to help!
please get in touch via the email thingo below, or by phone if you prefer!
thanks, and i look forward to shooting YOU soon.
