Photography for Awesome People with Adventurous Hearts

commercial, editorial, & portrait photographer Sydney Australia


Your family captured in honest, real sessions at your favourite place, or in studio. Wakeful babies, active toddlers and camera-shy husbands are a specialty!


Organic, artful imagery that shows the depth of your connection, and honours the love and celebration that surrounds you both on the first day of your marriage.

Fine Art

My lifelong quest to blend my love of nature, people, and life and share the world that I see. May it inspire you to see your own life as an awesome journey.


I’m privileged to work with organisations and brands representing the outdoor adventure, children’s fashion, health, tech and media industries.

Honest, beautiful portraits at your place or mine

I’m here to make it easy, and fun! We start with the end goal in mind and then work out the details. That way, before I’ve even picked up a camera, we have a plan for telling your family’s story and exactly how you want to enjoy your images. And yep, even less-than-enthusiastic teens and Dads admit to having way more fun in their shoot than they thought they would.

Looking for heartfelt, artistic and real wedding photography?

When it comes to wedding photography, my focus is on creating emotive images that honestly reflect the connection you share. I accept a very limited number of wedding photography bookings each year (just 12!), so if my work and my approach resonates, I would love to chat more with you about your plans.

Commercial, Editorial & Portrait Photography,
Sydney & Blue Mountains, Australia

Hi, and welcome! I’m Debbie Fear, a commercial, editorial and portrait photographer based out of east coast Australia.

While the stunning wilds of the Blue Mountains, NSW are my home, I also have a light-filled studio space in Sydney and I’m available for Australia-wide and international commissions.

I specialise in photography of people who love adventure – whether you’re looking for family portraits, you have a fantastic event you need covered, or you want high quality commercial photography that tells the story of your brand with style. I also accept a small number of bookings each year from awesome couples planning gorgeously unique weddings around Australia and beyond. I was trained in the pre-digital era so I still shoot with a mix of digital and film, and I have a love of the great outdoors that I love to incorporate in my work. I’ve won awards for my portraits and I’m a fully accredited member of the AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photography).

Ultimately, whether I’m photographing your wedding, your pregnancy or growing family, or partnering with some great brands in editorial/ commercial work, my goal is always the same: to create artistic, emotive images that honestly reflect the heart, soul and passion of the people in them. Take a look at my portfolios and you’ll hopefully see what I mean. Beyond that, it’s really important to me to offer you a great experience that begins with a conversation to see if we’re a good fit. So if you think we’d get on like old friends, get in touch now and let’s make a time to chat over the phone, or over a glass of wine or coffee, on me!
