Summer Scenes is a photography business based near Australia's world famous Bondi Beach. We specialise in beautiful beach photos - reflecting life in and around Sydney and Greece during the magnificent summer months. Our products are available in amazing Glass Prints and traditional Framed Prints.
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.
Summer Scenes’ Glass Prints are a talking point wherever they hang. We consider Glass Prints to be the premium product to showcase our photos, due to their modern frameless look and their unrivalled ability to bring stills to life, through their depth, clarity and enhanced contrast and colour. Whether it’s a beach photo, a sunrise photo, a sunset photo or a simple beach landscape - the finished product is unrivalled.
Our Glass Photo Prints sit approximately 17mms off the wall - providing beautiful sleek lines - and the rear mounting system is fully concealed. They are almost completely immune from UV fading and are scratch resistant
They bring any room to life - whether it’s at home - or at work.
Our photos are also available in a stylish traditional timber frame, in either White or Oak.
Both our Glass Prints and our Framed Prints come in a range of sizes, including some of the largest in Australia. 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.
