our stories


our services

  • Property

  • Marketing Collateral

Both of us saw the light and moved to Melbourne from Sydney many years ago. We won’t live in another state again… It’s not only the laneways, the food, the coffee, the footy, the music, and the vibe… it’s that and more. It’s where our kids are learning how to be awesome Victorians and it provides us with endless content for serious commercial projects and art that adorns many walls. There’s always another photo to be taken of Melbourne. 

  • Residential

  • Editorial

We have spent our entire careers documenting property in the prestige marketplace. From Toorak mansions to Fitzroy warehouses, Albert Park terraces to inner city lofts, all turned around within a day to get properties to market. We enjoy the responsibility of capturing a property at it’s best to constantly exceed vendor expectations and ensure our working partners’ ongoing success. 

  • Residential

  • Commercial

Years of shooting prestige and commercial property has expanded into large parcels of land and vast rural properties. It’s an enjoyable challenge capturing a large farm using drone images as well as hero angles of the homestead, stables, manufacturing plants, and the aesthetic beauty of country locations. There is always a vista across the paddocks or down a tree lined driveway that completes the job. 

  • Retail

  • Office

Creative office fit outs, golf club redesigns, film studio engineering rooms, beautiful restaurants and new retail offers. We have both opened retail businesses in our past lives and we understand the importance of good traffication, signage, branding, and product placement.

  • Civil

  • Heavy Industry

Big piles of dirt! Holes in the ground, trucks! Commercial and Civil Engineering feats, replacing concrete on Tullamarine Airport aprons, new Educational facilities, turn of shovel to completion of Chanel’s Asia Pacific HQ here in Melbourne and midnight replacement of pavement on the Monash Freeway to name a few. It's insightful, challenging and rewarding. Hard hat photography. We love it. 

  • Helicopter

  • Drone

Our current drone capability allows us to capture detail in high resolution Raw format.  Panoramic and 360 degree imaging capabilities add a new edge to our V-Tour offer incorporating both ground and air components. We’ve worked above Melbourne for a decade or more and we know what’s important in a big campaign. The asset, the amenity, infrastructure, access, transport. Helicopters add a seperate dimension in terms of range, height and scope for larger scale shots.


Actors, musicians, leaders of industry, studio art projects, everyday people and street photography.  (And a little bit of corporate as well…). Website content, Annual Reports & Capability. We have a fully portable studio lighting setup and various background options. We can come to you and photograph the team in a timely manner that provides the least amount of disruption to your operation. We can tailor your look to a specific idea or help you devise one for yourself.

  • Food

  • Spaces

The Intercontinental Hotel Melbourne, Melbourne Arts Centre, Grand Hyatt & Park Hyatt Melbourne, Crowne Plaza Melbourne, Holiday Inn Melbourne, Crowne Plaza Coogee, and hundreds of Australia’s finest restaurants and pubs. It’s in our blood…

Young & Percival  met while working in one of Sydney’s finest 5 star hotels over 20 years ago. That connection to hospitality has always stayed with us and we have revelled in the opportunity to be creative in some of the finest hospitality venues…. Everyone loves good food… the best chefs slave over dishes to create something special. They are pros and we love working with them. We get them. We also understand how important it is to translate their vision into an image that will sell dishes. We have had the pleasure of working closely with some of this countries best chefs in the best kitchens. 

  • Iconic

  • Lifestyle

Both of us moved here from Sydney with our families many years ago. The laneways, the food, the coffee, the footy, the music...the footy...the food..


It provides us with endless content for serious commercial projects and also artworks that adorn many walls. There is currently a display of around 2 dozen of our personal pieces in the lobby of the Intercontinental Hotel. Check it out if you're nearby.
