Photonation is based in the Central West, shooting events in Mudgee, Orange, Dubbo and surrounds.

We shoot dance performances, music concerts, sporting events including local weekend sports to international competitions, AGM's, races, trials, marathons, fashion shows, galas and just about everything else!

Don't rely on iPhone pictures of your event, or even hiring a photographer for the day which can cost thousands of dollars. Getting 'Uncle Bob' to photograph with his new camera may sound great, but the images may leave a lot to be desired!

How it works

Book Photonation by going to the Event Shoot Request form. Fill in your event details. A photographer will be in touch with you to get more information.  Photonation shoots the event for FREE* and uploads the photos to an online gallery. Customers than can purchase images and download them instantly as files. There is no obligation to purchase any images.
