About Me

Jaye Chaffey

    It all started at a Big Day Out Festival taking a disposable film camera along and capturing the day in just 24 shots. I saw shots published in music mags of the day weeks later which didn't look that different from mine. I changed from Art to photography in High school and was Gifted a Canon T50 35mm and photographed mates Skateboarding and would develop the images in the darkroom which was Pretty magical.

While studying photography at TAFE I discovered a love for Shooting live bands in Sydney's Inner West. For over 7 years Shooting unknown, Up and coming and established bands in some of Sydney's smaller and dingier venues. Some images have appeared In the Drum Media, EP/Cd Booklets and posters.

 

I expanded into room set/ product photography while working in an advertising photographic studio, Developing a style ranging from Dark and moody to bright and vibrant. Shooting for clients Domayne, Harvey Norman, Rebel Sport, amongst others and establishing some great connections in the industry.

 

Now Residing in The Beautiful Blue Mountains / Dharug, Gundungurra Country Traveling to and from Sydney most days working as a Freelance Photographer  with a range of great clients stylists, Art directors and Producers.
