HEATH WADE Master Photographer


Heath and his wife Mairead have had their highly successful boutique photography business in Newcastle for over ten years.

They started out as fresh-faced pups back in 2000, earning a living taking and selling local landscape images.

It wasn’t long before Mairead traded the classroom for the studio and Heath threw off his sparky’s pliers for life behind the camera, and they both embraced on a new venture together.

In 2005 Heath experienced a real ‘light bulb moment’, and passionately felt that he wanted to be part of the wedding/portrait photography scene.

He wanted to be the one capturing the roller coaster of emotions, love, friendship and excitement on camera, and so began his new studio.

Fast forward to 2017 and now Heath has been recognised and rewarded for his efforts, with State and National Awards and many ecstatic clients.

Heath is a qualified AIPP Master Photographer and was the NSW AIPP Wedding Photographer of the Year in 2013, 2014, 2015.

Changing Photographers Lives

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your help this year.

We had another record month for December with 32 sessions booked in for next year.

I also wanted to tell you, I used your suggestion of a baby plan with newborn clients. I charged them $25 to add a 6 month and 1 year session after doing the newborn session. One family today came in and spent $3,090 for the 6 month session, so it is definitely working. Kate & Chris Beuchner Uber Photography
