Meet Russell

Hi, I’m Russell and welcome to Mandurah Aerial Photography and Videography.

Mandurah Aerial Photography is incorporated within Russell Hyde Photography to offer you another level of photography services, besides our current wedding and portrait services.

I’ve been around photography all my life and with the addition of the drone, it adds another dimension to what we already offer.

I would best describe myself as a ‘car guy with a camera’. Yes, I’m a petrol-head from way back…I love hot rods, street cars and drag racing. I drag raced for many years at Ravenswood, in a couple of different vehicles. More recently I crewed on a friend’s Junior Dragster at the Perth Motorplex.

I’m a fan of rock ‘n roll music…my favourite bands are Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Metallica and The Angels. Not the sort of music you hear on commercial radio, though.

In my spare time, when I don’t have a camera or my drone in my hand, I like to play golf (badly, some days 🙁 ), go fishing and boating or cruising in my blue ’73 Torana!

I’m also a volunteer photographer with Heartfelt, a not-for-profit organisation of professional photographers from all over Australia and New Zealand, dedicated to giving the gift of photographic memories to families that have experienced stillbirths, premature births, or have children with serious and terminal illnesses. 

If you’re looking for aerial photography or aerial videography in Mandurah, or any location, for that matter, please call me on 0427822204, send me an email or use the contact form to get in touch. We can catch up for a no-obligation chat over a coffee and you can tell me all about what you’d like photographed or videoed. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
