About Chris Klaas
Chris Klaas is a Brisbane and Sunshine Coast photographer focused on food, people, products and places. I specialise in food, corporate, commercial and lifestyle photography.
Over the last 20 years I have built a reputation for shooting outstanding corporate, commercial and editorial photography. Capturing food, people, products and places is my passion. Whether I am shooting a cookbook on location, taking portraits in a boardroom or shooting in the studio, there isn’t a lot I haven’t shot or had a go at. The variety is something I love about my job, albeit not something I often consider a job, it’s more of calling, a passion to express how the world looks through my eyes.
Discovering photography after leaving school in the early nineties I worked in portraiture photography before moving to Brisbane and enrolling in the Bachelor of Visual Arts Photography major at the Queensland College of Art. After university I took the assisting route and was hired by Pioneer Studios in Sydney as a studio assistant affording me the opportunity to work with some of the best advertising and fashion photographers in the business. Three years spent in Sydney learning my craft as an photographic assistant, building sets and working as a photographic producer were a precursor to life’s real education, travel.After this I set off to backpack around the world for 6 years taking in Europe, North America and Asia. During this time I shot more rolls of film than I had warm meals.
This broad experience has allowed me to excel at a range of projects, from location assignments (even underwater and in the air) to technical studio shoots. Chris Klaas offers full service digital photography providing studio, on-site and location services. My work encompasses high quality images for a range of uses including commercial, magazines, websites, advertising and promotional material. Whether it is on location or in studio, I have a real eye for detail and take a clean and fresh approach to image-making. If you are keen to find out more, I’m only too happy to email you and provide more detailed information, images or discuss rates. Better still give me a call on +61 (0)416 16 9519.
