Toby is a Sydney based photographer and director who’s best known for his striking portraits of life’s unconventional characters and ability to capture beauty in unexpected places.
After winning a few industry accolades in his first year of turning pro in 2006, many doors opened to some of the nation’s best ad agencies and since then he hasn’t turned back. Toby’s ability to get to the crux of a commercial brief and relentless passion towards making the best of every assignment have made him a sought after image-maker in Australia and Asia.
To satisfy a hunger for storytelling with the moving image, he recently joined a directing duo named Stampede with his long time friend, Alex Feggans, who’s core mission is to create integrated print and TVC brand content with seamless continuity.
When not on assignment he enjoys spending time with his wife while chasing his two sons on Sydney’s Coogee Beach, working on his perma-tan and trademark designer beard.
WALKING INTO THE WOODS. Still searching for new lights and new ambients. For these shots I chose the silence of a pine forest, the last light of the day, the elegance of a long dress of the same color of the leaves of trees. And a simple, natural face. Natural as the light that I caught in these pictures, making it mine, forever. I love to work letting nature to inspire me. The shadows between trees, the glimpses of light between the leaves, these are the atmospheres I’m looking for: addictive , deep, sometimes mysterious.

Brian Haider. Fashion Photographer .São Paulo, Brazil(born 1987 in Sao Paulo, Brazil) photographer, specializing in erotic femininity, makes fashion, editorial, and advertising photographs. Working for five years with my father (Gilberto Haider, adv photographer) and with my mother Adriana Zselinszky (ex top model,now fashion producer) in our studio, HzStudios.Thanks to my parents' experience, many sleepless nights, and much effort, I could now develop my own photographic style and now I have my own clients, hand-picked by me. I also must credit Paul Khalil (photographer) and Celso Ferrer (makeup/hair), both also taught me much about the technique and the visual arts of photography. My style is influenced by the work of David LaChapelle, Steven Klein, Ellen Von Unwerth, Taka Mayumi,... I trust on originality and creativity, and always ask God to give me a lot of imagination on the day of the photoshoot.
KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. And just sometimes, my reality has mornings and daylight. It's filled with fallen leaves, purple mist, endless pink grass, tea, long walks, books, imaginary worlds and gentle love. The world is what you make of it.
