Getting to know who you are and understanding your personality is really important to us as it helps us to capture the real you.

Building these relationships is a two way street, so we thought weโ€™d give you a little insight into who we are and what brought us to fall in love with photography and choose it as a way of life.

Shireen Hammond APP.L M.Photog III
Shireen Hammond APP.L M.Photog IIIQuadruple Master of Photography
Growing up in England and having a father who (conveniently) managed an International Airline – gave Shireen her first taste of extensive travelling from the tender age of two years old and brought about her fascination of people, lifestyles, different cultures and their traditions.

The love of travelling saw her set off around the world at the age of 17, with her first stop being Australia, she loved it so much – she never left. (That and the fact that she ran out of money!) Here, she built her life, found the man of her dreams – married and had six beautiful children by the age of 30.

Although interrupted from time to time – (well wouldn’t you be if you had six little ankle biters!) her camera has never left her side, nor has her wonderful husband Robbie – who is the support team, graphic artist and all round good guy behind her wonderful imagery – (She was forced to put that in!).

Whilst she has been a successful business woman for most of her young life – it was at the still, tender age of 29 that she decided it was time to focus on her career choice for life. (She’s fifty five now – but if you see her – tell her she looks 39 – it’s easier on her lol).

Shireen studied at the International College of Professional Photography earning her Diploma of Photography and now, years later is a Quadruple Master of Photography, who’s humble beginnings started in the commercial sector. She then grew in her craft to capturing stunning weddings and bespoke family portraits, as this was the area that most fulfilled her love of people, lifestyles, cultures and traditions. (seeeee! we were going somewhere with the story earlier!!!!)

This is her chosen field and absolute passion in life – it is not a job, and therein lies the difference in her exquisite imagery, that can’t be mistaken. Shireen’s love of people and life, her engaging (and often witty) sense of humour (ok, ok she put that in) – has given her a knack of putting her clients so at ease, that it genuinely allows her to capture beautifully relaxed, natural and spontaneous moments (many of her colleagues are seething with jealousy) and her couples love her soooooooo much that many of them have become life long friends. (That’s the truth!).

Now why would you trust anyone else with your precious Family Portraits or Wedding? Go on…….pick up the phone, it will be the best decision you will make and you KNOW deep down you really want to…… : )

Robert Hammond, AAIPP
Robert Hammond, AAIPPFounder - Graphic Artist
Robert is a talented graphic artist and an amazing self taught, photoshop “Guru!” He’s an all round ‘good guy’ (or so he tells me) and definitely the backbone of Field of Vision Photography!

He loves coffee, bourbon and taking long walks on the beach….. (ok scrap that last part, I got carried away lol – he actually loves diving) – but as I have him tied to the computer 24/7 he doesn’t get out there as much as he would like to!

He is an amazing award winning photographer in his own right, and a master painter and it’s this amazing talent and fine hand that genuinely brings my images to life.

Robbie’s passion is to create jaw dropping images, that we in the business call “Illustrative” art. His attention to detail is amazing and technically, he is out of this world. He brings that creativity and knowledge to our daily work.

Why am I writing this Bio for him I hear you ask? Because my darling hubby doesn’t like talking about himself, and definitely doesn’t bleat about himself, but I can, because it’s true!
