Behind the Camera

Hi, I’m Andrew Merefield, the creative mind behind Elite Studio Pinup Photography. I think I’m incredibly lucky to do what I love every day – making people feel extraordinary.

For me, it’s not just about taking photos; it’s about crafting an unforgettable experience for your photoshoot. I get to do something truly special—I get to make you feel like a star and capture images that will take your breath away. There’s nothing quite like witnessing the delight on someone’s face when they see themselves in a new light, exclaiming, “Wow, is that really me?”

I draw inspiration from the vibrant artwork of mid-20th-century pinup legends like Gil Elvgren and Alberto Vargas, as well as the seductive and alluring portraiture of Hollywood’s golden age by masters like George Hurrell and Edward Steichen.

Combining my formal education from the Qld College of Art with years of hands-on experience photographing people, I possess the expertise needed to capture your finest moments.

However, the true magic lies in capturing your personality, your ideas, your quirks, your aspirations. Every shoot with Elite Studio is a collaborative journey where your individuality takes centre stage. Together, we’ll create images that not only reflect how you want to be seen but also celebrate the unique beauty of who you are.
