Meet Stuart Lyall
For just a split second a photo can take you somewhere you have never been before. It can give you the inspiration to travel, move to a new location, take up a new activity. It can give you an emotional attachment to someone, something or somewhere. Or just relive a feeling, taste or smell you had at that exact moment it was taken. Telling a story in a split second.
Hi there. I’m Stuart, I am very fortunate to live on a property on the picturesque Mid North Coast of Australia with my amazing wife and 3 beautiful children.
I am a photographer and videographer, self-taught on my mum’s “borrowed” SLR camera. I started taking photos back in the day when you only had 24 or 36 shots on a roll of film and then had to wait days to see what they looked like.
I first started shooting my mates jumping their bikes at the local quarry after school. I still remember that amazing feeling of once that bike left the ground, it’s as if time completely slowed down.
At the time, I knew nothing about photography. I just loved how you could freeze a moment in time, then relive that feeling when you looked at the photo. (after waiting days to have it processed)
Fast forward 30 years or so, after owning and running small businesses for the majority of my adult life. I have great empathy for all like-minded entrepreneurs and business owners. They wear so many hats each day. One of those is trying to give others an amazing feeling from their product or service.
Nowadays, we all have in our pockets a device to capture those moments in time almost instantly. Sometimes we get it right and sometimes we don’t. This is partly technique and partly experience. I would like to help you by using my expertise to provide the perfect shot or video.
Photos and videos are not just images or moving pictures. They tell stories and have an emotional feel. Providing that same emotional attachment and feeling in each and every shot I produce is my main objective.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story.
