Hello and welcome to Russ Benning Photography (RBP)! I am a professional photographer based in the Whitsundays, Queensland. I have developed skills in many forms of photography over the years but am currently focused on Weddings, Portraits and all forms of Commercial work including property. With years of experience and a very healthy arsenal of gear, RBP is ready and excited to capture all your special moments and total photographic needs.
A close second to my love of photography is my love of travel. I've been lucky enough to be able to incorporate both into my career and I'm always excited to provide my services in a new location! I've shot weddings in places such as Thailand, Bali, Western Australia, Hayman and Daydream Islands, and Villa Botanica just to name a few. I thrive off the challenge and am grateful for the incredible backdrops such locations provide me.
Coming from a strong background with inter-personal relations, I am fully aware of the incredible importance of being approachable and an open communicator. Being a smiling, bubbly character by nature I pride myself in my ability to firstly connect with, then maintain a strong and comfortable working environment with all my clients. This relationship is clearly reflected in the final images.
Creativity is a major influence for me and I relish every opportunity to bring something a little unique and special to your photo shoot. Always happy to collaborate on ideas and get a real feel for your wants and needs, I love to add my own creative input to guarantee a set of final images that meet and exceed your expectations.
As well as a love of photography I also enjoy writing, having had several published articles and interviews appear in a popular national magazine. Some of this material can be found in the Blog section and expect to see many more pieces in the future.

The Tabones! Family Portrait Session // Coral Beach Whitsundays
Every now and then, you run into a person who lets you be you. Completely you, and the best version of you. One of those people who makes you believe you can do anything and the limits and boundaries you put on yourself no longer exist. For me one of those people is Tahlia and I’m super proud to say she’s one of my best friends.
This is her family.
They are creatives, performers, dreamers, sweethearts, kind souls, good eggs!
It was my pleasure to have captured such a cool family in all their raw beauty in such a uniquely beautiful location.
