Personalised Portraiture

The simplest way to look good in a photograph is to have fun! Even if you don’t feel comfortable in front of a camera, it’s our job to make you feel comfortable in front of our camera.  We love doing portraits because we love to help you bring out your personality in an image. And we love creating everlasting memories of your family and friends. To place on your lounge room wall, your mantle, or in the family album. Getting the fantastic image is just part of what we offer. We create art for you.



We created Derek Chai Photography because we love to photograph people. We offer portraits that include:

  • Individuals (casual and formal, including headshots for your company, corporate, portfolios for actors, musicians and other performers)
  • Couples
  • Families (including extended families, grandparents, uncles, cousins, and of course, furry members too!)
  • Specific portraits (eg. grad photos, seniors portraits)
  • Sports teams
  • Maternity and newborn


We will come to you home*, meet you at a nearby park, at your place of work, or wherever you want us to be. At a location that you feel reflects your personality and your interests. (*additional travel fees may apply).


Once we have taken your photographs, you can choose from the included Online Gallery and order high-resolution digital files, or purchase prints, photobooks or albums. Your other family members and your friends will love looking at them the next time they visit. And they will talk about wanting their own images for their home.
