about Bente

My photography passions started early in life as a very keen enthusiast, following the growth of the family and capturing travel locations and architectural inspirations for later art work. Through the challenge of photographic competitions and local and international exhibitions, I have built upon my photographic talent, skills, creativity and qualifications in photography over the decades.

As a member of the AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photography), I am broadening myself as a freelance photographer, with a commitment to their professional standards and Codes of Practice.

My obsession is all things architectural, industrial, mechanical and creative.

I would welcome any enquiries you may have regarding your photographic needs at bente@andermahrphotography.com or call 0403 177 252.

As an imaginative designer, I understand the importance of creating an environment that thrills and exceeds a clients’ expectations. Whether it is a contemporary garden, trendy cafe, stylish office suit or just an ambient personal space, it is work that deserves the best presentation available.

My purpose is to support the creative work of designers, decorators, architects and craftspeople. I sincerely believe I can compliment a designer’s work from a different perspective with my range of professional skills that include uniquely styled photography.

I offer two types of services:

  • to create unique photographic art to suit the colour and theme of any styled interior
  • to photograph the creative work of designers, decorators and stylists in a manner that complements their individualism and efforts.

If you do not see what you are looking for, or you are after more clarity or information, please contact me and I will be happy to discuss your photographic requirements.
