Michael Kennedy Sydney Photographer – Portfolios

Fashion photography for Esperance and Co shot on location in Palm Beach, NSW, Australia showing cashmere topper in colour Dawn Pink


My first advertising shoot was with Sir Edmund Hilary for the forgettable Daihatsu Sherpa …ok fine I was only the intern and mostly just made terrible coffee but I was intrigued by the magic we produced that day. I spent the 90’s with a Polaroid under my arm, a second timer running in my head […]


Architecture and Design photography is a labour of love . Waiting for hours for the light to be just right, often returning many times just to capture a blade of light grazing a wall to bring out the texture and colour and shape of a building.

Yellow Audi R8 Spyders driving through the Dolomites during the Audi R8 Spyder European Tour

For the Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange Project simultaneous parties were held across the globe where paired cities exchanged themes and danced the night away. Sydney traded places with Brazil and the Carnivale party was a […]


Lifestyle Photography is all about recreating natural little moments with a light carefree authenticity..almost like a memory from a holiday where life was all about living in the moment. Closely related to Editorial Photography, I love to shoot in this style. I think its very much how we live here in Sydney.

Bob Hawke portrait


A portrait can take many forms. It could be an actors headshot, a stolen moment on the street or even a corporate portrait. The best portraits happen when there is a moment , a silent honest connection between the photographer and the subject where pretence and distractions are stripped away and the real person is […]
