Hi, I’m Rog…

  • Principal Photographer (+Marketer, Bookkeeper, IT Guru and chief bottle washer) at ArtyJ 🙂
  • Travel Junkie
  • Beer Connoisseur
  • Classical Music Lover
  • But most of all… A madly passionate photographer!

Since 2007, I’ve shot over 550 Weddings & Elopements (including in the Hunter Valley, Newcastle, Central Coast, Port Stephens, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Canberra, Milan, Tuscany, Venice, Amalfi & Santorini), nearly the same number of eShoots, as well as over 150 Corporate & Commercial assignments.

My working style is pretty laid back, chilled and relaxed, and I’m based in the beautiful Hunter Valley in NSW. That said, I travel extensively and always love having new places to shoot.

Standard travel area includes the Hunter Valley, Newcastle, Central Coast, Port Stephens, Mudgee, Sydney & the Southern Highlands.

 

Not to brag… but I even have some awards!

  • Silver (1 of them) – 2018 AIPP Australian Professional Photography Awards
  • Silver (1 of them) – 2018 AIPP NSW/ACT EPSON Awards
  • Bronze (3 of them) – 2013 EPSON International Pano Awards
  • Bronze (1 of them – 2012 Creative Asia Awards
  • Bronze (1 of them) – 2012 International Loupe Awards
  • Bronze (1 of them) – 2012 EPSON International Pano Awards
  • Bronze (4 of them) – 2011 International Loupe Awards

I really should enter more… Trouble is, I’m too busy shooting for clients.

Head over to the Awards page to see some awarded images and my most famous image!!

Meet Baydian…

  • Associate Photographer
  • Drone Genius
  • The tall one!!!
  • Yes he has a Man Bun 🙂
  • But most of all… The best wing man and backup anyone could ever ask for!

Baydian has been shooting weddings for ArtyJ since 2015.

He is an amazing photographer and always gets the best (different angle) shots, and never gets “in the shot” 🙂

Dunno how he does it really…
