Hi, my name is Karlo I’m a professional photographer that’s based here in Sydney. If I’m not behind the camera you’ll find me in front of the tv usually watching movies or flicking through YouTube with my girlfriend during our downtime.
What gear do you use to take your photos?
What type of photography are you into?
If I could only choose one, I would probably do environmental portraits. But I love doing all of them.
How did you start photography? What/Who inspires you?
I started a year ago when I bought the Canon M50 with the sigma 18-35mm lens. It started as a hobby that turned into shooting commercial products, real estate, events, and weddings.
I loved Fan Ho’s black and white series, how he uses light and symmetry to tell a story, and also Emmanuel Lubezki who is the cinematographer of the movie The Revenant.
Top 3 locations to shoot
If we are talking just Sydney I will have to pick:
- Sneaker boy alley
Top 3 tips

What has been your most memorable experience?
Whilst walking back home my girlfriend spotted one of my shots (the only work to date) that has been printed and used for advertisement. A shot of the Ivy Bird Cages.
