the photographer


Frances Andrijich is one of Western Australia’s finest photographers. Her extraordinary images – whether captured in the townships of South Africa, the Croatian countryside, or Indonesian slums – have earned her a growing national and international reputation. That said, Frances’ heart lies in Western Australia and she has a passion for capturing the people and the places they live in. Shooting intuitively and incisively, Frances’ photographs can be lush and painterly, or witty and surprising; they are always technically superb.

Frances’ images grace the covers of magazines, feature articles, books and campaigns, including Australian Financial Review Magazine, Good Weekend, Australian Geographic, Halliday Magazine, Gourmet Traveller, Wine Decanter (New York & London Editions) and The Australian, Wish Magazine. Her portfolio is diverse, grown out of her ability to be versatile, and her desire for the extraordinary. It includes portraits documentary, dance, corporate, landscapes, food and wine. Corporate clients include Alcoa, Bauer Media, Cape Mentelle, Cherubino Wines, City of Perth, Bankwest, Howard Park Wines, Landcorp, Leeuwin Estate, Parmelia Hilton, Meerkats, Moss Wood, Qantas, Red Cross, Shell Australia, Australia’s South West Tourism, Vasse Felix, the West Australian Ballet and the West Australian Opera.

Frances is the recipient of numerous awards; she exhibits regularly and has published eleven books, also a contributing photographer to 4 other books.
