Of course, following our piece on interior stylists, we must acknowledge the people who skilfully capture the curated beauty – the photographers. Whether you’re passionate about interior design or simply have a craving for some good photographic work, we highly encourage you to check out each artist’s portfolio for that inspiration you’re secretly craving.

Debi Treloar

To start things off, we have the very talented Debi Treloar – a freelance interiors photographer, who turns spectacular architecture into a mystical production through her lens, and has a tuned eye for detail and beauty.

Malcolm Menzies

Next up – Malcolm Menzies. Malcolm is a commercial, hospitality and interiors photographer who also works internationally – and rightly so!

His interior photography is sleek and bold, photographing beautiful contemporary settings in a variety of styles and architectural structures. We think Malcolm’s work is fresh, bold and eye-catching, providing his clients with images that perfectly capture the essence of the project. Malcolm has shot for a variety of clients, some of which include: The White Company, Raft Furniture, Villa Nova, Habitat and Lombok.

Now that you’ve seen some of Malcolm’s work, it’ll make sense that he also owns an incredible shoot location that we represent in our books – 6ixteen Country House & Cottage – which he co-manages with his wife Fiona. The property is fabulous and very much beloved by our clients; we can presume that Malcolm’s photography experience has something to do with knowing what makes a fantastic shoot location!
