Q&A with Professional Fine Art Photographer and PSC Alumnus, Stan Gemlitski

From 'Deconstructing Spaces' by Stan Gemlitski

From ‘Deconstructing Spaces’ by Stan Gemlitski

After pursuing his studies at PSC, alumnus Stan Gemlitski majored in Fine Art Photography and won 3 Silver awards (including a Silver Distinction) at the Australian Professional Photography Awards and the International Loupe Awards in 2013, as well as 2014. Currently working at his own venture ‘Paparazzi.Melbourne‘ doing glamorous wedding photography, Stan continues to build his ‘Spaces’ series, in Melbourne.

Here is our short Q&A with the enterprising photographer, who tells it like it is – especially on the note of establishing your own photography business.

  1. What led you to your style of work (the inspiration behind your choices in style and subject matter)?

Most certainly I would say that my photographic interests lie in the field of wedding photography. The current style that intrigues me and I am enjoying working on is wedding photography with a candid approach, combining art and glamour with the magic of the moment.  The style was inspired by works of the famous Russian painter and photographer Sergey Ivanov.

  1. Why did you choose photography?

Six years ago, I became a Director of the Tibetan Children’s Fund and at that same time purchased my first Nikon camera, so I was able to cover all of the charity events.

Slowly it turned into a life passion. Although I still do a lot of documentary photography and enjoy it, at PSC I’ve been given an opportunity to explore and be guided into many other genres of photography. I had chosen Art as my major to develop my vision and find my style through my final year of study.

  1. What do you miss most about PSC?

Studying at PSC, reminded me of my previous university years, and had allowed me to feel young again. I was very fortunate to meet a lot of great people during my studies and formed genuine friendships.

  1. Was there something you learnt at PSC that had the biggest impact on you, as an artist?

The biggest impact on me as an artist came in my final year, when as a part of the course curriculum I visited Gold Street Studios and learnt about alternative photographic processes. I’m trying to incorporate this into my current work.

  1. What are you working on right now?

At the moment, I’m actively developing my new business Paparazzi.Melbourne https://www.facebook.com/paparazzi.melbourne and I’m also continue working on my Spaces series (www.stangemlitski.com)

  1. Can you advise us on how emerging artists can establish their own photography business?

It is very hard to compete with well-established businesses in the industry, so this is what I’m thinking you should do when starting a new business

  1. Find a niche product or service that nobody offers.
  2. Start small, do trials, don’t put a lot of money at the beginning.
  3. Be flexible, change or adjust direction if needed.
  4. Work hard and don’t give up.
  5. Give back to the community.

How to Be a World-Class Photographer Featuring PSC Alumnus, Hiroki Nagahiro

Hiroki banner

Image by Hiroki Nagahiro


For a kid who thought he’d grow up to be a professional football player, international photographer Hiroki Nagahiro found beauty in the art of photography and immediately changed his course of life. Growing up in the mountainous and idyllic town of Shimane (Japan), Hiroki experienced quite a transformation when he moved to Melbourne in 2011, to learn visual arts. It was here, in the cultural capital of Asia Pacific, where Hiroki developed an understanding of the flourishing international arts scene.

The love for photography struck him to the core, when he reached the 2nd year of his studies at PSC. According to Hiroki, the realization came about thanks to the effect of being around other aspiring photographers in the college – a community with which he formed a deep attachment.

“PSC wasn’t just about learning different subjects and doing assignments…these are important, but they’re not as important as finding a sense of connection with teachers, students and staff members. Teachers had the biggest impact on me, in fact. They made classes interesting, by talking about their experiences and giving advice, which changed my entire outlook on life. While teaching me the basics, they gave me a chance to do what I wanted to, pushing me to excel every time. Apart from learning about photoshop, lighting, editing and re-touching techniques, I was taught how to connect with people from the industry and I was given tips for dealing and working with other artists. I learnt how to look at my own images in new ways, in order to create the best folio – it was amazing to work with the Print Shop and the Resources Hub at PSC as it helped me to gain that professional edge when producing work and scheduling shoots… I can write an entire book about each and every teacher at PSC!”

From Hiroki’s folio, while he was at PSC. You can order this stunning print, amongst his other work by clicking the image.


Although Hiroki loves Melbourne; mostly because of how lively and easy everything is, he’s found himself traveling to regions farthest away from it! Since graduating from PSC, he has done assignments in Tokyo, Toronto, New York, Shanghai, London and Paris. His schedule at the moment, as a professional commercial photographer, is jam-packed with producing work for high profile clients that he connected with by purely networking. “What clients want to know is what image I can create for them, with my own style.” Hiroki believes in the power of self-branding, as photographers are all entrepreneurs in a big way.

Here are Hiroki’s 4 golden rules for networking in the photography industry:

1. Make your ambitions clear to people you meet.

Tell them about who the ‘future you’ is. In my case, I told everyone that I wanted to shoot fashion editorials for Vogue Paris, and design international campaigns for Armani and Zara before going on to create one of the best art agencies in the world. Eventually, someone will be interested in you and will give you an opportunity to work towards your goal.

2. Create a folio and keep updating it.

Do you ever buy anything without knowing what it looks like? It’s the same rule with your potential clients. You won’t get jobs just because you are super friendly and knowledgeable. People want to see what they’re paying for, so showcase your skills in the best way.

3. Find the people you really want to work with and contact them.

If you keep persevering, they may feel inclined to meet you. By the time that happens, you should already have a great folio, which will make the conversation smoother.

4. Have your pitch ready.

Give clients a good reason as to why they would choose you from the sea of photographers out there. Think about defining your style and most importantly, focus on explaining your technique. Don’t talk about prices and pay. It’s about your work first.

Being professional in your approach and preparation will put your techniques to the forefront, allowing people to see your styles and have faith in your folio. For more information about developing your skillset in photography like Hiroki did, read our Full Time Studies Page.

Adventure, Hard Work and Determination


Five years after graduating from PSC, international photographer Mathew Lynn gives us an update about the action-packed life of working in the field of photography.

Mathew Lynn is currently a freelancer who is picking up assignments with The Weekly Review, Star Weekly and Getty, in addition to being a contributor for The Yen Magazine, The Age, Makeshift, The Sydney Morning Herald and Foreign Policy. He is working around the clock, in the pursuit of returning to his life of globetrotting.

Graduating with his Advanced Diploma from PSC in 2010, Mathew immediately went on to accomplish paid photography assignments in Timor Leste, Thailand, Myanmar, Vietnam, Papua New Guinea, Singapore and Hong Kong. Using his skills at PSC, Mathew networked with staff and peers who referred him to jobs, adding breadth to his riveting portfolio.

Mathew Lynn, 2014. 'Young people dance while being sprayed with water. Town Hall, Yangon.'

Mathew Lynn, 2014. ‘Young people dance while being sprayed with water. Town Hall, Yangon.’

One of his earliest professional folio pieces involved photographing drag queens at commercial studios – and from that moment onwards Mathew was spear-heading opportunities left, right and centre.

“The contacts I made while studying, proved to be really useful – some put my name forward to volunteer shooting stills on a feature film ‘Balibo’. Even though the film tanked, I made more contacts who assisted me in getting contacts in Timor. Within a year of graduating from PSC, I found myself sitting in the President of Timor’s back yard drinking gin and tonics!”

Having an eclectic collection of work and taking up opportunities that led him overseas (particularly around Asia) has helped Mathew carve a niche for himself, dealing with clients all over the world. His last assignment on ‘Ageing in Singapore’ was presented to him by an independent and dynamic social enterprise, ‘Gone Adventurin’, which has been making waves with its community driven approach to storytelling and business marketing. Mathew’s project will soon be featured on their channel.

'Occupy Hong Kong With Peace And Love' / 'Umbrella Revolution' protestors wave mobile phone LED's while singing in unity beside government buildings in Hong Kong. Protests began after the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPCSC) came to a decision regarding proposed reforms to the Hong Kong electoral system.'

Protests began after the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress (NPCSC) came to a decision regarding proposed reforms to the Hong Kong electoral system.’

Looking back at how he has grown as a professional commercial photographer and photojournalist, Mathew feels that getting a strong foundation in photography education was key in securing the work he gets today.

“I think PSC is great at teaching technique. The course is also commercially driven, which is useful – particularly in the way of editing, and toning images. “

As Mathew embarks upon another journey, capturing important stories across Asia Pacific, he advises photography students to diversify their work through different genres of photography and video.

5 Tips for Photographers: Launching Your Career



Amy Paton has had a steady career after her years at PSC, where she completed her Advanced Diploma. Learning about imaging, post-production techniques, working with clients and collaborating with a mentor, during the program has helped her to get a well rounded view of the photography industry. She currently works at The Warrnambool Standard as a photojournalist. Here are her tips for launching a career as a photographer:

1.  Network With Those Who Add Value To You

It’s as much who you know as what you know. Mentors are so important; the mentor I found in my third year ended up becoming a great friend and an equal . We now exchange tips and details about work. He refers me to jobs he can’t do and gives me great feedback about my photographs.

2.  Make The Most Out Of Your Time While Studying

The people you meet at Uni can help you out in the long run. Get to know people while you have the time. Make the most of guest speakers, industry placements and everyone you meet thanks to your teachers. Ask to assist or second shoot professional photographers who visit you, and observe them while they work. It also helps to take them out for a coffee, for a chat about the industry. People are always willing to help students, especially the keen ones!

3.  Always Say Yes

Never say no to any work. Even if it’s not in your special area of interest, as you end up getting another contact, another reference and an addition to your portfolio of work. Think about the future, when all these avenues will get you more assignments.

4.  Working For Free Is Not A Bad Thing

Do volunteer work (but tread with caution). I have reached where I am today, because I worked for free. Working for a professional football club and having the support of their media team,as well as showing how keen and committed I was opened so many doors for me – they couldn’t pay me (as much as I, and they, wanted to), but they promoted me as much as possible at the highest levels they could. This expanded my portfolio tenfold and allowed me to always be selected for paid jobs, thanks to the helpful staff. Many professionals warn against doing volunteer work, so you have to make a sound judgment call; go for projects where you’ll get something worthwhile out of it.

5.  Focus On What You Love And Stay Dedicated

Be passionate about your craft and your vision. It may sound redundant, but in a place like PSC (and really just the photography world) you won’t get anywhere unless you’re really keen and enthusiastic. The people you meet will support you so much more if you’re really excited about what you do. Work hard and don’t forget to put in the effort to have a great social media presence (Facebook and Instagram are key!), as well as a website.

You can have a look at Amy’s wonderful website and portfolio, by clicking on the image:


With these simple and very important tips, strengthen the foundation of the career you choose to build for yourself. Stay connected to the community of photographers and to your work, things will work out! If you’re interested in beginning your future with photography, you can also be a part of the PSC legacy like Amy.

The Who’s Who of the PSC Symposium


Welcoming the second PSC Symposium at the Ballarat International Foto Biennale, are highly famous figures in the arts circuit. Our speakers are united in their interests in subject matters pertaining to ‘culture’, which is what our main point of discussion will be for the event. The concept of ‘Borderless Futures – Reimaging the Citizen’ points to a very crucial issue that affects everyone in our present day society, as populations shift about, lending a majority of people to live in places disconnected to their ethnic roots. Moreover, the role of photography and visual imagery today is more powerful than ever, as the individual now has total control over how he or she is represented. We look at the way visuals in the past have taught us to learn about our own histories, and question the protrayal of certain cultures by those who were given the power to capture identities.

At the PSC Symposium, the experts will take the floor, talking about their work and the question of what it means to be a ‘global citizen’ today.

Our Own Emma Rose on Being Selected for the BIFB

Emma Rose, our talented graduate of PSC who has returned to extend her journey with us through the Pathways Program, speaks about her experience in getting selected for the Projections Program at the Ballarat International Foto Biennale this year:

There have been 45 artists chosen, from 16 countries around the world.
My series, Fish Tank, includes 20 photographs exploring today’s rapidly shifting landscapes: the humdrum of daily routines, rise of solo lifestyles and the overall ease with which people are interacting with largely artificial spaces. As government surveillance heightens, there’s a looming presence and an overriding sense of isolation of the individual in an indifferent world.

I’m an Advanced Diploma graduate from last year’s fine-art major, with a background in journalism and theatre. My work has been significantly influenced by Melbourne’s distinct brand of architecture. I have a passion for people-watching and capturing fleeting everyday moments — particularly the dynamic between humans and inanimate objects and the modern landscapes they inhabit.

The Ballarat International Foto Biennale runs from August 22nd to Sept 20th, and the Projections Program loops on a big screen at the Ballarat Mining Exchange from 10am to 5pm daily throughout the festival.

Exploring Stories with PSC’s Amber McCaig at the BIFB


Photograph by Amber McCaig


“I just love people and photographing people, but especially just real people and getting to know them by delving a bit deeper and trying to explore their environment and their life.”

PSC graduate Amber McCaig, is one of the 21 major photographers invited to showcase her most recent work at the Ballarat International Foto Biennale. Having presented her previous projects in London, Tokyo and Sydney, she now is set to launch her series ‘Americana Now’ on the 22nd of August in the Core Program of the festival. Amber is well-renowned in the photography circuit and remains to be a huge inspiration to the many students still studying at PSC – after all, she has been a finalist in the Renaissance Photography Prize, won 3 silver medals at the Canon APPA awards and 2 silver medals at the Victorian Student of the Year Awards!

Apart from having a rich portfolio while studying at PSC; experimenting in still life photography (which was as thought provoking, imaginative and symbolic as her portrait photography) and finding her niche, her career has had a remarkable turnaround as a result of achieving her degree. Amber is currently a producer for Andrew Richey Photography, and she manages Ripe Studios in South Yarra.


Amber’s ‘Americana Now’ series is an exploration of the quirks that people acquire and how they form attachments to certain ways of life that may seem unexpected to ‘outsiders’. Amber recently expressed that her purpose with the series was to question why certain people felt so strongly about the 50’s and 60’s (in particular), and why they wanted to “embody it physically and mentally”. Through her work, we are undoubtedly exposed to an unseen community of individuals who celebrate a shared sentiment of nostalgia. Amber’s work is insightful and daring, as we get a glimpse of the personal spaces of her subjects, whose stories unfurl before us, frame by frame.

Experience ‘Americana Now’ at the BIFB this Saturday and catch Amber herself at the Launch Program.

Graduate Update – Amy Paton

An integral part of our students learning at PSC is developing the skills needed for real work opportunities and creating networks within the photography industry. It’s great to be able to share their stories and see them rewarded for their efforts out there in the industry!

Photojournalism graduate Amy Paton has just started working for the Warrnambool Standard and shares her experiences below.

Amy Paton

My name is Amy Paton, a 2015 graduate of PSC having just completed the Advanced Diploma of Photography, Photojournalism Specialisation.

I found out about the jobs at Fairfax through my Photojournalism teacher Bill Bachman and another photojournalist (who happens to also be a former graduate of PSC) who was good enough to pass on that Fairfax Regional had positions available. I immediately applied, was lucky enough to go along to an interview and got the job!

I started at the Warrnambool Standard Newspaper in June, having moved down from Melbourne and into a share house just off the main street, very close to the office. So, a tree and sea change plus a new job all together!

I’ll eventually be one of three photographers at the paper. As part of my job, I get a new iPhone 6 and a laptop for work purposes!

It’s a 0.8 of a full time position, perfect for me. I will be working four days a week, including two weekends on and then one weekend off.

Every day at 9am we have a staff meeting to bounce ideas around for that day and assign tasks. Apparently I’m welcome to contribute to that meeting, but I may just watch for the first few until I settle in.

After the meeting I go out, shoot a few different jobs, come back to the office to edit and file… then I can head home.   Sometimes I edit and file on location instead of going back to the office – the convenience of technology.

There’s a lot of editorial work, so environmental portraits, light on location and such – glad I learnt all about that at PSC! They asked me in the interview if I was okay with seeing death and other disturbing scenes, so it’s likely I’ll eventually be sent out to cover the breaking news.  

As part of my role, I also have the opportunity to write some articles to go with my photography. The Write for Publication unit we did last year as part of the Photojournalism Specialisation will come in handy!

There will be a lot of sport to cover with the Warrnambool Standard so I’m grateful for the experience I gained with my folio on Northern Blues VFL football club! [Amy’s 2014 Photojournalism folio was about a suburban VFL football club]

Future plans are to try to pitch a review of a big music festival I’m attending in a month, see if I can get a media pass and some photos I can use too!  Otherwise… watch this space!
