Summer Scenes is a photography business based near Australia's world famous Bondi Beach. We specialise in beautiful beach photos on Frameless Glass - reflecting life in and around Sydney and Greece during the magnificent summer months.
Our photos are taken with the highest-grade professional cameras and lenses and the example images you see here on the Summer Scenes website have been dramatically reduced in quality. There is no Summer Scenes branding on any ordered print.
Our photos are available in two major formats;
(1) Frameless Glass Prints
(2) Traditional Timber Frame Prints, in either White or Oak.
Just like our Frameless Glass Prints - our Timber Frame Prints come in a range of sizes, starting out at 60cm x 44cm - and going right though to 149cm x 106cm.
Custom sizes are also available on request. We deliver to your home or office, Australia-wide and offer International shipping as well.
Summer Scenes’ Photographer:
The man behind the camera is award-winning radio and television presenter Andrew Martin. “Marto” has been in the media for 30 years, having started out in Community Radio, completed a diploma at the Australian Film, Radio and Television School and progressed into key on-air roles at many top rating Sydney stations including Nova, 2GB and 2UE. Andrew can now be heard (and seen) on Sky Racing.
Andrew also has a lifetime passion for photography, after being shown the ropes by his father at a very young age, back in the darkroom era. He's since compiled magnificent portfolios from around the world, but his favourite canvas’ are the beautiful Sydney coastline and the holiday hotspot Greece.
Summer Scenes is Andrew's latest collection, capturing life in Sydney and Greece, both in and out of the water.
Our Galleries: Our photos are divided into 9 main Gallery Categories
Ask any professional photographer - and they’ll tell you their favourite beach to capture - is Sydney’s iconic Bondi Beach. It’s natural beauty has made it one of the most famous beaches in the world.
At Sunrise, the beach is alive with early morning surfers and fitness fanatics, before the beachgoers arrive in their thousands to soak up the summer sun.
At the South end - there’s the world famous Bondi Icebergs (which is a fantastic spot to catch a Sunrise) and down the North end you’ll find families galore in and around the Children’s Pool. Sandwiched in between - people from all walks of life lazing in the sun and swimming in the famous waters.
Bondi is truly an Aussie gem!
