Pat R - Production Manager
Anthony - Social Media Manager
Anthony’s evolution into photography has been a natural transition throughout his many art-making practices. After studying Visual Arts & Design, Anthony has hit the ground running, providing some extensive artistic influence to the team drawing from his background in painting and graphic design.
After joining Voena as a fresh face at the back end of 2013 Anthony has gone on to working with some of the world’s most influential artist’s in his concert photography, to recently becoming Australia’s first published photographer in Street Dreams Magazine as well as completing advertising campaigns for Adidas, Spotify, and Schweppes.
“I draw a lot of influence from music and superheroes". Anthony’s strong love for music was what first prompted him to come across our radar, however his love of comics and movies is something evident within his distinct artistic approach, which sometimes transcends realism, and delves in to the world of composite photography. “My world, it’s like a jigsaw puzzle, and my job is to put the pieces together the best I can to evoke something to the viewer. I want people to wonder how it was taken”.
Needless to say, the future is looking bright as Anthony is working towards integrating more of his stylistic traits within Voena.

Andrew - Photographer
As a teenager travelling through Europe, Andrew was adamant to not capture the same images as everyone else, to always strive in capturing that which commonly went unseen.
After being with Voena for over 2 years, Andrews premeditative style of shooting aims to create new scenarios, not just capture existing ones and throw things into a new light.
In a medium that is constantly changing, Andrews drive to be outside the norm sees him not only fit into the Voena team, but to constantly push its boundaries outside the realms of normal.
ARI - PHOTOGRAPHER
