Artshoot was founded in 2020 by Nik Babic with the idea of bringing photography, filmmaking and graphic design for the performing arts within a single creative hub.
Artshoot has since evolved to draw upon the experience and expertise of many local and international professionals from the creative arts industries most of whom have strong personal performing arts experience. This makes Artshoot very much in tune with the special requirements expected when working with professional artists and in performance environments.
Artshoot prides itself on intimately understanding the world of the stage.
