STATE LIBRARY OF VICTORIA: We have used the services of Francine Schaepper Photography for several of our major events over many years and have been extremely happy with her creativity and great technical skills. Besides, Francine is very reliable, always arrives prepared, knows to work from a brief and is extremely professional. With her keen eye for detail she is able express the mood and buzz of an event in every frame, even in challenging settings. She can navigate a crowded space discreetly and gracefully, without disrupting guests, capturing the best moments of an event and translating them into great photographs.

Our team has enjoyed every assignment with Francine and would highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a professional and creative photographer.

DATING PORTRAITS: I contacted Francine with a view to having some professionally composed photos taken for my online dating profile. My friends and I aren’t into taking selfies when we are out and I felt that the limited number of photos of myself that I did have were haphazard, of poor quality and didn’t do credit to me.
From our first email contact Francine was easy to communicate with, completely transparent about the cost involved (which was very reasonable I might add) and a two hour photo shoot was able to be quite readily and quickly arranged. Whilst I was somewhat nervous at the commencement of the shoot Francine’s relaxed manner soon put me at ease. At the conclusion of
the shoot I commented to Francine that I had actually ended up really enjoying the shoot. When the photos came through I was thrilled with the results and they have certainly increased my response rate on online dating sites. I would have no hesitation in recommending Francine to anyone considering something similar.

SWISSCHAM – SWISS AUSTRALIAN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE: SwissCham Australia has been using Francine on numerous occasions for our corporate events. It has always been a pleasure working with Francine.

I can highly recommend Francine to anyone wishing to capture those memorable moments in life.

RP CONVEYANCERS ACCOUNTING FIRM:  Francine is the ultimate professional. I hired her to take photos for my business and I was totally impressed with the outcome. Her attention to detail and service were outstanding. I felt totally comfortable with Francine and this was reflected in the photos taken. A total professional who knows how to get the best shots! I have no hesitation in recommending Francine to anyone who requires an outstanding photographer. 

Adriana Hamer, Licensed Conveyancer,

I needed photos to design the business website of RP Conveyacers including staff and premises. To my delight, Francine exceeded expectations. Not only did she find clever ways to make the premises and staff look more welcoming and professional than the website’s competition, she also included a bunch of great looking detail shots of things like folders and filing cabinets. This really lifted the overall look of the website, givint it more personality and relevance than the stock images people often use.

MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL / Event Photography: Francine was one of our event photographers for the Melbourne International Film Festival this year, and was dedicated to the Talking Pictures program, a series of conversations, panels, and masterclass events which presented more than 80 speakers to a public audience, including local and international directors, festival guests, media personalities and the like. Francine was a consummate professional, very reliable in terms of event coverage, turning around web ready imagery for gallery posting within 24 hours, working amongst audiences, and working with our guests (including high profile ones) and in differing kinds of venues, and working within MIFF requests and processes faultlessly; she was also fantastically talented in what she captured, and had a very assured eye for observing events. She was both capable of delivering our requests in terms of coverage checklists to deadline, and providing more creative and detail oriented shots of the spaces as well – we were impressed by what she provided.

I have no hesitation in recommending Francine for photographic work or assignments, and especially around the specific settings of performances, panels, and arts or cultural events. I´m happy to talk further, and can be reached on 0424 584 961.

SWISS FESTIVAL MELBOURNE / Event Photography: Francine is an absolute delight to work with. She did a photo gallery for the Swiss Festival 2014 and captured the atmosphere of the day vibrantly and colorful and more perfectly than we could have hoped. Francine listened to the brief and gave us exactly what we asksed for and in a timely manner. In fact, she exceeded all our hopes and expectations! We had such a great day and the fantastic photographs that Francine took, paint a perfect picture of it, meaning we can re-live the day over and over again.

I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Francine as photographer. Not only did she do an incredible job with the photos, but her attention to detail, friendly nature and personal touches make her the perfect person to capture your special day!

Rolf Huber, President Swiss Committee Melbourne


BEINGWELL HEALTHCARE / Promotional Photography : ” We employed Francine to assist us in taking professional photos of our practice and practitioners to update our website and brochures. We found Francine to to be highly organised and professional, particularly when having to juggle 2 practices and 18 staff members. When Francine presented the photographs, I was completely amazed with the image and the feelings they portrayed. As we are a Health & Wellness business, the photos and the artistry in which Francine had meant the photos reflected the calm, spirited and ambient atmosphere of our practices.

I will highly recommend Francine for further photo sessions with us and others alike.”
