About Blue Tree Studios

Blue Tree Studios is led by its two principals, Rachael Dere and Joseph Feil, and the team consists of six photographers and three videographers with in house retouching and editing skills.  Our team has a wealth of photographic and video expertise to assist clients in the delivery of their marketing needs. The experience within the group is considerable, with literally thousands of jobs photographed for all levels of government, for media organisations such as The Age and The Australian, a range of educational institutions and a wide range of major Australian corporate businesses.


Our expertise covers major advertising campaign work, architectural projects, professional corporate imagery, editorial images that tell stories and lifestyle images that people can relate to and feel comfortable with.


We are equally at home in a studio, on site, out on the land or in a suburban environment. We take photos and digital video of products, people, landscapes and structures. We take photos that are honest, believable, fantastic and ambitious. Importantly, we have the experience to ensure that every photographic brief is delivered on-time, on-brief and on-budget.


We pride ourselves on our service and customer focused attitude. We have a proven track record of providing creative solutions and the ability to realise concepts.
