HELLO, I AM

Brodie Butler

I am a Photographer, Director, Cinematographer & Educator in Perth, Western Australia.

As a photographer first for over 15 years, I specialise in on-location portraits of people and automotive genres and I’m well known for my comprehensive use of light and off-camera flash.

I like to dabble in motion projects and I am now focused on passing my knowledge down through workshops, online courses and public speaking.

You will never see me without a cap, and if you want to try your luck on the golf course against me, I’m ready to go!

I spent a decade as a commercial & editorial Automotive photographer and www.driveline.net.au is dedicated solely to my automotive portfolio.
I have been a Photoshop enthusiast even before my Photography days and pride myself in doing most of my own retouching and my talents have even been adopted by the WA Police Force Forensic Divison for… well, I cant say.

Filmmaking was my passion from a very young age so becoming a cinematographer was a pretty natural transition. With my extensive photography experience Directing projects soon followed. I have experience working on large documentaries, feature films, music videos and everything in between. I also have experience as a Steadicam operator.

I was the Australian Director of Photography for the Legends Football League touring the country in 2013/2014 which broke records on 7mate.
I was also recognised by Canon Australia to launch their EOS 5DSR to the public in 2015 and again in 2020 to launch their Canon EOS R5 in W.A.

All in all I’m a bit of a ninja behind a camera and I have an obsession with light. I have a real passion for branding and I love combining the creative and technical components into one mechanism to tell great stories.
