Who We Are

Like most startups, the business originally known as David Kirby photography started in a garage, over 30 years ago. David Kirby was a keen photographer who spent hours, surrounded by film and negatives in his dark room.

His passion for photography ignited a career and became Studio Kirby, a Brisbane school photography company. In 2010, David’s sons, Matt and Michael, took over the family business. Since then, they have grown it into Queensland’s premier school photography company and now work with over 150 schools and universities annually.

In 2017, we launched Studio Kirby Marketing, with the aim of taking the school world by storm.
