Hi! Thanks for stopping by. I’m Denis Banks – a wedding and portrait photographer based in Grafton, New South Wales.
My style is honest, fun and natural. I steer clear of the studio environment, instead heading outdoors and favouring the stunning natural surrounds as a unique setting for my photographs. If you want a laid-back experience for your photo shoot, I’m your guy. My specialties are weddings, couple shoots including engagement shoots, maternity, candid lifestyle, sweet newborn sessions, outdoor cake smash shoots for the kiddies and family sessions.
I am married with two beautiful kids. My journey into photography began soon after the birth of our first child and my hobby quickly developed in to a passion. I went from photographing family and friends for fun, to being asked by others for sessions, both in the Clarence Valley and further afield. My wife pushed me to start a Facebook page and Denis Banks Photography was created. The rest, as they say, is history.
Oh and I probably should mention that I only have one arm. Short story: a motorcycle accident in 2008. Just let me know in advance if you want a story for the kids – my personal favourites include an encounter with a crocodile and that I didn’t eat my vegies so obviously didn’t grow up big and strong. You get the idea! On a serious note, surviving a near-death experience really does open your eyes to the beauty of life and is a reminder to cherish every moment.
If you would like me to capture some of your cherished moments in beautiful images, please get in touch.
