Stunning photography for models and fashion brands.
Stacey Russell is a Brisbane based photographer specialising in natural light fashion photography on location and has been working professionally in the industry for over a decade. A master at controlled retouching, she delivers imagery in which natural beauty shines!
Whilst clients often invest around $1500 for a digital portfolio, pricing starts at just $850. Many also purchase a stunning product of their favourite photograph to feature in their home. Interest Free Payment Plans are available to assist with affordability. Please continue scrolling for further information and pricing.
Stacey works with both aspiring and established models (including children as young as 8 years old, teenagers and adults) to build and expand their portfolios.
A portfolio of professional imagery is essential for showcasing your look to potential clients. The photoshoot is an invaluable experience for you to develop your modelling skills and, if you're new, an opportunity to ensure it is something you truly enjoy and want to pursue. Not only will the photographs benefit your portfolio, they are also beautiful keepsake portraits to share with family and friends.
Stacey’s photographic style is fresh and on-trend! A master at controlled retouching, she delivers imagery in which your natural beauty and defining features shine; a style very much in-line with agency expectations. You can trust that the images you create together will be stunning and timeless!
Every purchased image from your model portfolio shoot is beautifully colour toned and professionally retouched before being delivered to you in high resolution. Stacey will ensure that each image you purchase receives individual attention.
Retouching includes: removing blemishes (we all have bad days), correcting skin tone (to remove any redness), tidying fly-away hairs, enhancing lighting and colours, accentuating hair/makeup, removing distracting elements, fixing minor clothing issues, merging different image components and more!

Stacey comes highly recommended by us. Bella had never done anything like this before and was quite nervous but Stacey put her at ease straight away and was so easy and fun to work with. The photos are incredible and Bella has received positive feedback from two agencies already. Thank you Stacey for your expertise and skill!
