About Erik Sawaya

  • Internationally published portrait and ballet photographer. Available in Melbourne + Sydney.

    Erik, originally from Montreal, launched his career in Amsterdam working for the Dutch National Ballet, Tommy Hilfiger, and Calvin Klein. With campaigns for the Dutch Ministry of Health and Kunstbende (a famed art initiative in the Netherlands.) In 2013, he followed the love of his life to Melbourne, where she was relocated for work.

    A journalist in Amsterdam once described his style as... "Vibrant and alive. His style of shooting is raw, natural and clean, yet every picture has a warm, analogue film quality to it. Finding that both the challenge and excitement lie in working in a controlled environment and being able to capture the natural moments that happen inside that space, Sawaya is capable of capturing the essence of the person in front of his lens. Instead of forcing his vision upon his models, he invites them to show their self, often allowing a great sense of humor and light."
