Over the last 10 years Kristian Frires has observed and practiced the art of photography, perfecting his technical skills and learning from some of Australasia’s top commercial photographers. Now, with his portfolio screaming fresh talent, Kristian joins the IR team of photographers as the one to watch. He has won numerous awards such as the Humanity Photo award, gold pins at Best Awards and AIPA Photographer of the Year for his engaging and beautiful series on the Solomon Islands – and it’s not hard to see why. Kristian’s style is clean and considered, yet substantially natural and unaffected. Incredibly technical, professional and with a strong knack for composition, Kristian has an innate ability to capture the sincere beauty of his subjects. Plus he does his own retouching.
