About Me

I am a freelance photographer and photographic artist based in Melbourne, Australia. While making photo's for well over 2 decades now, it has been the last 4-5 years that has seen my focus and passion for photography growing exponentially. Photography is vehicle for expressing how I see and interpret the world. I love creating beautiful, unique images.

As a commercial photographer, industrial & architectural photography is my key area of focus. My work has been described as ‘clean’ and ‘minimalistic’ demonstrating a unique emerging style. The elements and principles of good design are the building blocks used to create my photographs. Attention to detail to ensure the right light, colour, composition, post-production editing and an unerring eye for what works and doesn’t are cornerstones of my approach so that each image tells it’s desired story & meets my clients brief.

If you are looking for licensed images from my portfolio or have a new project in mind, I would be happy to discuss your photographic requirements. Please contact me via the contact page on this website or by email at marion.abada@gmail.com.
