In his teens Peter discovered his love of photographing people and through family and acquaintances borrowed a camera, learned to develop film and make prints. Later discovering polaroid really revealed the core of his passion. The moment you see the image that was moments ago in your mind's eye. He has developped strong relationships with his clients and is know for being able to interpret and translate a brief to create visuals that exceed the client's expectations.

"I like the prints, seeing work in exhibitions and on billboards but most of all I love the act of photography"

Peter Collie is now based in Sydney Australia having worked in Canada, the US, England and France as well as other exotic spots like Jamaica and Mexico.
