After studying at the Centre for Creative Photography in Adelaide, I now work in Melbourne and around the world using digital and analogue media for magazine editorials, musicians, performance artists, non-traditional weddings and personal projects.

My handsome fella Alastair Innes and I form the destination wedding duo She Takes Pictures He Makes Films.  He creates cinematic and engaging short films, perfectly complementing my photographic style. I’ve started directing some of our non-wedding film projects.

New York’s Rangefinder Magazine recently named me one of the 30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography, for which I feel incredibly honoured.

I’ve shot editorial features for Dumbo Feather, Frankie, Hello May, and Broadsheet, and had work featured in many print and online publications (please see below for a more detailed list). My street photography series Spain on Film was recently exhibited at The Centre for Creative Photography in Adelaide;  I hope to hold the show in Melbourne soon.

Combining travel with photography is my greatest thrill, so if you have something you’d like photographed in a distant land, I can be there (we can work together to make this affordable).

Please email me at hello@lucyspartalis.com with any project ideas, plans or dreams you have. I’d love to hear from you.
