IPWEA - Event Photography for State Conference
“The Institute of Public Works Engineering Australasia, Queensland (IPWEAQ), engaged Roslyn of Budd Photography to Photograph all proceedings of our 2017 State Conference held recently in Townsville. Roslyn was an absolute pleasure to work with. Her initiative and pride in her work shined immensely throughout the entire course of the conference, and staff felt more than confident in knowing that they would receive nothing short of spectacular results.
Roslyn went above and beyond for our event and her willingness to lend a hand with any task showed what a true professional she is. We absolutely recommend Budd Photography to anyone looking for a reliable, dedicated photographer to capture amazing images of any nature.”
Fantasea Cruising had the pleasure of working with Roslyn in our recent shoot on our vessel and around Magnetic Island. Ros worked with us from the moment we engaged her, several weeks prior to the shoot, coming up with creative ideas and talent acquisition. She knew the right way to portray our company’s values and exceeded our expectations with the outcome. Ros rose to the challenge and threw herself in 200%. She has a natural flair for putting people at ease, and was an absolute pleasure to work with. I would have no hesitations in recommending Roslyn for her multiple skills, hardworking attitude and stellar personality.

Healthia - my FootDr & Balance Podiatry
Roslyn is an absolute delight, creative, efficient and very professional. She knew exactly what to do and how to support our objectives, without us having to fly from Brisbane to Townsville to manage the project. I had total peace of mind that the long distance project was going to succeed with little direction.
Ros’s photo-shoot captured the essence of our brand and our purpose to educate families about the importance of foot health through visual story telling. We ended up with so much more than expected. We couldn’t recommend Ros’s photography service more highly.

From the first email I received from Roslyn after my initial enquiry, it was clear that she was experienced and professional… the kind of person I needed to have working with me. This is very important for an introverted personality like mine, and I felt comfortable with Ros from the very start of our interaction.
Her direction was easy to follow and Roslyn was instrumental in making each shot unique due to her depth of understanding the tools of her trade and manoeuvrability… the long shots, the low shots, her climbing on the ladder shots and throughout this she made every attempt to bring my personal style to the surface.
It has been a pleasure working with a calm and determined professional like Roslyn. I will confidently recommend Roslyn of Budd Photography to anyone seeking a professional and quality service.

I had been delaying getting professional profile photos for some time, as I’m not comfortable in front of the camera (I would much rather be behind the camera taking the pictures). However, when I met Ros I felt an instant connection and knew that I could trust Ros to guide me through the process.
Ros came to my home for the photo shoot and from the second she arrived, I immediately felt at ease. I loved observing Ros in her creative mode, as she scanned my home for the best angles, light, position etc to capture the best photos. Ros was able to keep me relaxed throughout the entire session. We laughed and had fun, almost to the point that I had forgotten she was purposefully capturing photos.
Ros’s talent and creative eye were clearly evident with the final results. Ros captured amazing photos, which brought a tear to my eye when seeing them for the first time. She managed to capture ‘me’, the real me, the pure and honest version of who I am and not a highly digitalised photo-shopped version of me. This was so important to me and Ros listened to my needs and met them above and beyond my expectations. I highly recommend Ros to anyone considering professional photos of any kind.

Queensland Airports Ltd - Townsville Airport
Townsville Airport engaged Roslyn to photograph our ground handling business unit, Aviation Ground Handling to develop a suite of hero images to be used to refresh the website and marketing collateral. Roslyn was efficient, professional and had a natural ability to make everyone feel at ease during the shoot. Not only did Roslyn capture the team and brand creatively but she was flexible with the early morning start to adhere to the tight timeframes of our airport schedule. We received the photos within a few days of the shoot and were incredibly happy with every image. I would highly recommend Ros and look forward to working with her again soon on future airport projects.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Ros on some promotional images for growing residential development. The project was a huge undertaking (both animals and children were involved) and required multiple shoots at various locations; Ros handled the job with enthusiasm, ease and professionalism. I was delighted with the finished product, as was our creative agency and I can’t thank Ros enough for her wonderful eye and finely-honed skill. I would recommend Budd Photography to anyone looking for professional photography and a pleasant experience.
~ Sarah Mathiesen , Director
We have been fortunate to work with Ros on our corporate and government initiatives to create professional and evocative photos, capturing images that are full of life. With her eye for detail and composition, we have been able to utilise many of her images in both printed and online media. I look forward to working with her again on future projects.

Taste The North
“Taste The North engaged Roslyn to photograph our new 2 day food and wine event in Townsville. This was the second occasion I have worked with Ros, the first was in the restaurant at JAM. Ros went above and beyond to capture an array of spectacular images at the inaugural BMW Townsville – Taste The North Gala Dinner and at our Pol Roger Champagne boat cruise. It is a pleasure to work alongside Ros who is professional and committed to delivering a great result, we actually received more than we expected.”

Jays Real Estate
Whilst residing in Mount Isa, Roslyn Budd was our exclusive photographer for over 5 years, covering all aspects of our residential and commercial property sales and leasing photographic needs. Our largest project included the sale of an estate of 32 homes, which required Ros taking shots from a helicopter at difficult and close range positions. Ros has also taken all of our marketing photos for personnel, staff and business requirements. She is highly professional, creative and has quick turnaround times, which are vital qualities in the real estate industry. I highly recommend Ros to any other real estate agent, along with businesses in general and private clients.

Townsville Enterprise Ltd
“Roslyn was commissioned by Townsville Enterprise to capture and compile a series of images, video and virtual tours for approximately 28 of Townsville North Queensland’s event venues and business event tour products. From the outset, Roslyn managed this major project in a professional and timely manner. She was a pleasure to work with and continuously kept the team up to date with the project status. All stakeholders were also engaged throughout the process and Roslyn ensured they were satisfied with the images and virtual tours as part of her process. The outcome well and truly exceeded expectations. Roslyn took the time to understand the key selling points of each venue/tour and successfully captured the images in a way that showcased these elements. Townsville Enterprise has been able to further leverage the photography work from this project, as these images are now featured on a number of marketing and PR materials, promoting the region in the fields of tourism, events and economic development.”

Ronald McDonald House North Queensland (RMHNQ)
“Ros, you were simply amazing when photographing our staff at Ronald McDonald House North Queensland. Thank you for your patience with our team, as each one of them wanted to look their best for the shoot.
The photos of the House and families were also wonderful and I thank you for making the DVD that was shown at the Ronald McDonald House Nth Qld Glencore Ball. To know a local was so involved with the Charity only helped make the occasion such a success.
Ros, you captured our House and its rooms, families, volunteers and staff beautifully, and I thankyou from the bottom of my heart for your donation.
A great BIG THANK YOU!”

Paul and Alison Fisher
“When our builder wanted to enter our home in the HIA Awards and we needed photos taken of the house, there was one person we knew we could count on to capture the best features of the house perfectly on camera, and that was Roslyn Budd.
Ros has exceptional attention to detail and made sure every frame showed the house at its best angle, lighting and everything was adjusted to perfection. Every frame was arranged meticulously and Ros did a superb job, so much so our house won in its category.
Ros really cares about her clients, doing the best job she possibly can and this reflects in the quality of the images she produces. Her images skillfully capture the personalities of her portrait clients and her bubbly outgoing personality makes everyone feel at ease.
I’d highly recommend Ros, whether it be for portrait or commercial photography. You will not be disappointed!”

Tek Diving Services - Darwin
“In every respect Budd Photography exceeded our expectations.
It was immediately apparent that Roslyn was completely at ease and comfortable working in high risk, high compliance environment.
Roslyn was efficient and professional, coping with the early starts, long hours and the hot and humid ‘build up’ conditions of Darwin. She was shuttled around the work site on small transfer boats wearing the site compulsory work boots, life jacket, gloves and personal protective equipment, looking after her own tools of the trade with sure footed agility. Quick on her feet and unobtrusive, Roslyn was there to capture the moments as they presented themselves. Roslyn is a consummate professional, and with her modest and gentle manner she immediately won the respect of the crews as she arrived at each team site and seamlessly dovetailed into the worksites. The worksites were usually small workboats, with ropes, cranes, diver’s umbilicals, control panels and crew, leaving very little spare deck space. Roslyn blended in as if she had been part of these teams for weeks.
The end result was not just a disc of images, but an evocative story that expressed the complexity of the work operation, and the positive team attitudes, personalities and professionalism of the divers and support crews. The experience was an absolute pleasure from start to finish.”
~ Tek Diving Services
Wardle & Associates
“The photography to compliment a totally revamped website, complete with corporate staff photos, was tasked to Roslyn of Budd Photography, and was met with absolute ease and no fuss. With 15 staff, each requiring a corporate and personal image, Ros worked closely with our team to ensure a happy working relationship.
Sourcing locations, and attention to detail, to ensure the highest of standards for our corporate shoot, were unsurpassed, and confirmed we had made the right choice in a photographer.”
~ Tamara Mason
Regional Integrated Marketing
“Distance, challenging conditions, and briefing by email, is no problem at all for Roslyn. Our shoot for Pybar, at Osborne Mine, highlighted her tenacity, skill and ability to make people feel at ease – producing outstanding results. My client and I are really happy and look forward to working with Roslyn again soon.”
~ Samantha Hain, Director

Mount Isa Physiotherapy
“Prompt, creative, efficient, with an ability to put everyone at ease. Managed to turn a work photo-shoot into a relaxed and fun session for all involved. Captured everyone with natural, happy expressions! Ros’ photo-shoot formed the backbone of our website, which ended up much more professional and pictorial than we could have hoped. We couldn’t recommend Ros’s service highly enough!”

Diamantina Power Station (DPS)
“Roslyn from Budd Photography is not only an incredibly gifted and creative photographer, but she is also one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. AGL Energy and APA Group, two of Australia’s largest energy businesses are jointly constructing the Diamantina and Leichhardt Power Stations in Mount Isa, Queensland.
Roslyn has captured the construction process from greenfield site through to first power generated and her stunning images have helped bring our power station to life whilst providing us with an extensive photographic record of each key milestone. We now have an invaluable portfolio of highly commercial photos that have been used extensively across the project communication and marketing needs.
If you need an accommodating and gifted photographer who puts everyone at ease, then call Ros – her natural talent will find the unique visual beauty of whatever you need photographed and she’ll do it all with a smile…even if it’s in 45 degree heat!”
~ Jen & Naomi, DPS Communications Team
“Based on the great relationship we had with Roslyn through the Diamantina and Leichhardt Power Stations project in Mount Isa, APA Group asked Ros to photograph our gas transmission and network operations in Brisbane. APA Group is Australia’s largest energy infrastructure business, transporting around half of Australia’s gas usage.
Ros has an amazing ability to capture any image – be it a gas valve, a piece of pipe or our skilled team of operators out in the field – and have that image tell a story about our business. Importantly, Ros makes everyone she’s photographing feel comfortable and relaxed, even the most camera-shy. This skill and Ros’s personable nature made the photographic shoot an enjoyable day for everyone, resulting in a huge range of highly usable images.
The most satisfying experiences are when you get what you needed, meet your objectives and have a great time doing it – working with Ros from Budd Photography ticks all these boxes.”
