Who are we?


Larissa is an international award winning landscape and travel photographer from Brisbane, Australia. She travels the world taking photos to promote amazing tourist destinations.

She has been featured in Australian Traveler magazine, on Channel 7’s television program The Great South East and is a published author.

She has a constant case of wanderlust and is always planning her next adventure which she write about on her blog: www.larissadeningphotography.com.au

She also loves teaching people how to take amazing photos and runs workshops throughout the year.


After graduating University with a Bachelors degree in Drama majoring in Film and TV, Stephen has forged a 20 year career as a television producer; with the past 17 years working in Children’s Television. The majority of those years were spent at Channel Ten producing such shows as Totally Wild and Scope. While Children’s Television has been an amazing outlet for his creative cravings it wasn’t enough and that’s where photography came in. Stephen started taking his love for photography seriously about 8 years ago and hasn’t looked back.

He has transferred these skills into a successful part-time career as a photographer/blogger and social media influencer, working with Tourism Queensland, Dubai Tourism, Brisbane Marketing, Sunsuper Riverfire and most recently New Zealand clothing company IceBreaker.

And for the past three year he has been able to impart his knowledge and skills by conducting highly successful photography workshops with Larissa.
