Local profile – Brett Scapin

It’s Spring and wedding season is upon us so today’s local profile is timely.  It’s also a very small world in that Brett is my children’s former music teacher and while we miss him at school, Brett’s been on a different journey since taking a sabbatical to be a stay-at-home parent and modern man!  He’s clearly a talented creative professional who has segued into something related but different since taking time out and I wish him the best of luck on his new path.  Read on for more about Brett…

Name: Brett Scapin

Occupation: Wedding & Family Photographer, and stay-at-home dad.

Lives/works: Reservoir

How long have you lived/worked here?
I moved to Reservoir from Heidelberg 2 years ago. All of my boring admin-type work happens from home, but the fun part (with camera in hand) happens all over Melbourne.

Describe yourself/what you do:
I’m a wedding and family photographer. Regardless of whether I’m shooting a huge wedding, or a family just hanging out at home on the weekend, there’s always so much going on; a lot more than people on the inside probably notice. So when I’m shooting, I really like to stay out of the way so that events (good and bad) just unfold before me. I find that this way of working is also sympathetic to people who aren’t super comfortable in front of the camera. And that’s practically everyone!

I really fell into this work last year after my daughter Lucie was born. I took a year away from my job as a music teacher at a primary school to be home with her, and after one or two little weekend photography jobs, work just exploded and my ‘free time’ (what’s that?) vanished!

Best thing(s) about living/working in Melbourne’s north-east:
The best thing about the work that I do is always the people I get to meet and shoot for, but that’s not to say the people of the north-east are better than people everywhere else!

I also love the proximity to so many different incredible locations. I never feel far from inner-city Melbourne, or the bushy outer suburbs. Definitely best of both worlds!
