Chloe Hutchison

Meet Chloe Hutchison

Based on the Sunshine Coast in Australia, Chloe has always loved photography, and at the age of 18 she developed 35mm film for a Kodak store and was introduced to her first DSLR camera which was the catalyst for the career she has now.

Fast forward to today, where Chloe has studied a Bachelor of Film, started a photography and filmmaking business, built an iconic and one-of-a-kind photography studio and production house, worked as a videographer and editor within a world-wide media company, and has photographed, filmed, and directed on a consistent basis for global fashion brands such as Roxy, Billabong, Wrangler, and many more.

As well as working with global brands and travelling for work, Chloe also gets the opportunity to work with smaller fashion labels, where she is able to use her years of experience and style to cultivate beautiful imagery that tells each brand’s unique story.

Chloe has had her photography published globally, her short films displayed in stores, has been invited to speak on panels and podcasts talking all things photography and business, she has had her studio Havana Haus featured in multiple magazines, and has built up a successful photography business where she can now help others do the same through her bespoke workshops such as this one.
