Artshoot was founded in 2020 by Nik Babic with the intention of bringing photography, video and graphic design for performing artists all under one roof.
It has evolved from Nik's lifelong involvement with music, fifteen years as a professional portrait and performing arts photographer and more recently videographer and filmmaker.
Artshoot is a team of creatives who bring their expertise to projects through collaborative approach.
We work with established artists and experts in their fields including award winning photographers, sound engineers, filmmakers, musicians, dancers and choreographers. Most of the team have personal performing arts experiences which makes us very aware of special requirements needed when working with artists and in performance environments.
We pride ourselves on intimately understanding the world of the stage.
