who is kristian gehradte?

He’s one of Melbourne’s leading photographers. And he’s known around town for his dynamic style, keen eye and fresh, modern imagery.

But perhaps what Kristian Gehradte is best known for is pushing visual boundaries.

He’s been doing it ever since he picked up his first film SLR – on a 6-month tour of the globe, aged just 21. The holiday snaps he took there served as more than just a memory. They launched a career that’s spanned well over 10 years.

He works hard to get the most out of a shoot, paying attention to every detail. And he likes to involve the client in the creative process – so that every image he creates for you, is an image you’ll love.

Thoughtful composition, balance and client praise make him happy. But slow-walkers and people who drive under the speed limit in the right hand lane – not so much.

And while his folio is filled with vibrant, striking imagery for some of the world’s biggest brands, there’s more to Kristian Gehradte than his photographic prowess.

When he’s not shooting, you’ll find him chowing down at the latest culinary hotspot, running around after his charming daughter, or trying to convince himself that the antioxidants in red wine make it good for you.

I was very pleased to find that a photographer of Kristian’s calibre who was both very professional and extremely down to earth. He was on-time, always professional, easy to get along with and always making you feel comfortable in front of the camera.

I’ve used Kristian Gehradte Photography twice in the last 4 years for professional portraiture – on both occasions his work has been excellent. Kristian has a relaxed manner, pulls out some truly creative shot angles, and is detail focused. And importantly for me his job turnarounds are quick.

As editorial coordinator at The Magazine Publishing Company, Brisbane, I have hired Kristian on a number of occasions to take commercial photos for our Melbourne feature stories.

He has produced excellent work for our magazine, including rich photos that engage the reader that we have been able to use for double-page spreads. He is highly enthusiastic, has plenty of ideas and brings a fresh approach to his work.

I recently engaged Kristian Gehradte for corporate photography. The outcome was extremely impressive with a series of visually engaging and creative shots.

He delivered a great variety of images and set-ups despite having a very limited time to shoot – and delivered on deadline and budget. He clearly demonstrated the ability to successfully interpret a brief, which was particularly vital as this shoot was managed from overseas. Highly recommended!
