Peta Burton of Be Curious. Ask. Shortlist Photographer

Darwin, Northern Territory
5 out of 5 from 14 reviews.

Northern Territory professional, versatile photographer/writer, Peta Burton.
From the NT and across Australia to the Pakistan/India border my photographic/writing portfolio encompasses content for;

portrait (bubs to grandies)
cake smash
seasonal (Christmas, Easter, Valentines Day and Mother/Father's Day)
agriculture/horticulture, construction, maritime and environment industries
travel and tourism
events (including remote events)
corporate, product launches and rallies

For me, attention to detail, transparency and empathy as well as a genuine wanderlust for the world and its people is innate. I am captivated by light and shadow and create images to reflect a real life end result.

My business, Be curious. Ask., is a culmination of this disposition, studies and published and professional work.

I look forward to working with you.

Kind Regards, Peta

Peta was amazing. She did our maternity and newborn photoshoot. She is so dedicated to her work she does not have a time limit on anything. We are so happy with all of our photos and she is very affordable

When we met Peta she was warm and welcoming and took time to talk through with us what we wanted and as we were happy to be guided by her gave usideasto what shehad in mind . I personally found the shoot exhausting but Peta was not phased by my toddler's tantrums for my newborn's tears and if something wasn't working she moved swiftly on. The next day we received some samples and we were blown away by how many great shots she managed to getand I am absolutely delighted with the final outcomeafter I received the full range of all the pictures a couple of days later. We are sograteful to Peta for capturing so many preciousmoments for us. Peta was professional, flexible, competitivelypriced and I would highly recommended using her services.

Working with Peta has been a blast! We contacted her to take photos for our new brochure and from the first time we met, her honest and energetic attitude had us hooked. Peta's professionalism and artistic input produced amazing photographs of our Sunset Dinner Cruise and her attention to detail flowed on to helping us design and create content for the brochure. We look forward to working with her again and highly recommend her versatile skills in photography and artistic design. Shane & Matt Cape Adieu Harbour Cruises

We feel that Peta went beyond the standard professionalism of a photographer, and was somewhat like a director successfully getting the best from her cast.

Peta has undertaken several shoots for our mango brand in our orchards and packhouse. She has meticulously met our brief each time, capturing people, scenery, products, and industrial activity, to produce some truly beautiful photography. With multiple locations and photography styles to cover, and restrictive budgets and timelines, Peta has been incredibly flexible and accommodating. Her initiative and creativity in adding shots she thought might be of use and interest over and above our requests was also very much appreciated. We look forward to our next opportunity to work with Peta!

We engaged Peta to take venue and food shots for our new restaurant opened in Bakewell and we have found her to be professional and a pleasure to work with. She has a good eye for for capturing a wide range of shots and with great focus and attention to detail. Would highly recommend her

Peta is very professional and organised. We had a lot of correspondence before the shoot so there were no surprises or misunderstandings on the day. Peta worked with one of our Arts Workers and quickly developed a good rapport which comes across in the quality of the photos. Peta was also quick to follow up with copies of the images and information about when and how they would be used.

Peta was such a delight to work with. Her ideas were fantastic, her energy is contagious and she spent time getting to know us beforehand so she understood what message we wanted to get across to the public. Would highly recommend Peta!!
