Shooting Spree Photography
Hello and thank you for visiting my website. Firstly, you might ask, Why the name Shooting Spree Photography? Yes I understand that it might be a rather morbid/quirky name to have. However, my foray into photography began from the wildlife perspective. I would stalk birds and wait patiently for them to appear. Most of the time, I would wait for hours and on a couple of occasions, days even. If the bird shows up, the camera trigger is squeezed hard with adrenaline and excitement. I love wildlife and nature and sincerely believe in the preservation of these by shooting through a camera and not a rifle. That was how the name came about.
More About Me
As mentioned above, my other hobbies include wildlife and landscape photography. My instagram handle for that side of things is @kachang90 should you be interested to check it out. In addition I play football (Manchester United Rocks!) and loooooove scuba diving. I need a good cuppa to start my day off and I am still waiting for the day when I can own a few dogs, cats, birds, fish and any other animal you would like to chuck in there.
Journey as a Photographer
I embarked on my professional photography services in 2012 in Singapore. Subsequently, my wife and I moved to Darwin in 2016 following which I formally initiated Shooting Spree Photography. I am a member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photographers (AIPP) and in 2017 and 2018, was awarded the Northern Territory Emerging Photographer of the Year for 2 years in a row as well as the Northern Territory Documentary Photographer of the Year in 2019. This has indeed been great encouragement, although appreciation from clients have been most meaningful. Each day I continue to learn from the best photographers in the international wedding scene and I am very happy to share my knowledge with anyone who wants to have a chat.
My style of photography is mostly natural. I believe it is important for you to be yourself during your special day and to enjoy the moments without much intrusion. I also understand how it might be awkward for some to have someone pointing this large monstrosity at them and recording their every move. I feel it is important to establish a rapport with my clients as I would like for them to feel comfortable in front of me and my camera. It is for this reason that I meet my clients soon after they engage my services, so we know each other better and I can learn their style preferences. View More...

I’ve had 2 photo shoots for my business with Navin. He is exceptional at his work and the turn around of finished photos is very fast.
I highly recommend him he is an absolute class act.

We asked Navin to photograph the biggest event on our calendar, so it was so important to us to get it right. We were so thrilled with Navin's photographs - they caught the spirit of the day perfectly and we now have a wonderful archive of powerful images celebrating our community which we will be able to share. Highly recommend Navin for event photography. Knocked it out of the park, Navin - thank you
