Brett has established himself as an outstanding portrait photographer on the international stage. His stunning images and unique approach are surprising many diehard photographers. Bryce Courtenay was author of world famous novel, The Power of One.

What makes Brett Canet-Gibson so different - he just uses ONE lens. That's right. Just ONE lens. A Nikon 50mm prime lens on his Nikon camera.

Brett, from Perth, Western Australia shoots a portrait most days, setting up a simple black backdrop in an urban setting. He approaches interesting people, chats with them. shows them his folio of work and invites them to pose for 10 to 15 minutes. Brett is an honest, believable photographer with a personable approach.
'Stay with me' he says softly as he fixes the eye-meet and captures another powerful image.
