    Cassandra is a Sydney based photographer with over a decade of photographic experience, specialising in events for news editorial agencies and PR agencies throughout Australia. Her event photography delivers the energy and creativity required by media outlets, ensuring she is a highly sought after photographer. Her current clients include Getty Images and she has worked extensively with the ABC.

    Cassandra is also a sought after portrait photographer. Her natural inclination to people watch has led her to understanding personal subtle nuances which gives her the ability to draw out the true essence of individuals. Cassandra’s highly regarded portraits include Ricky Ponting, Wayne Coyne and Waleed Aly.

    In 2014 Cassandra presented a critically acclaimed solo exhibition on the Western Broad Walk of the Sydney Opera House, charting the personal journeys of The Merrymakers Australia, a dance troupe with a difference as it is entirely made up of dancers with a disability. The exhibition took place on International Day of People with a Disability.

    Whether capturing the anarchic frenzy of live music festivals or the gentle intimacy of vulnerable subjects, Cassandra’s strength is her ability to connect with her subjects, enabling her to reflect the raw life within them. This has lead to her work being published globally.
