Award-winning professional photographers, Brad & Kara Smith's partnership spans over 20 years, as popular wedding photographers,

on the Gold Coast.


Retiring from the wedding scene and dreaming of a tree change, Brad & Kara moved to the High Country Hamlet town of Pechey, atop of  The Great Diving Range & surrounded by the beautiful Pechey Pine Forest in Queensland, Australia.

This micro-region is home to a plethora of agricultural farms, producers of beef, pork & poultry, fruit & vegetables, wonderful cellar door wineries & olive groves, cafes & restaurants, artisans & dreamy accommodation getaways and farm stays. All spread throughout the 

High Country Hamlets of Pechey, Hampton, Ravensbourne, Crows Nest & beyond.

This stunning hinterland tourism hotspot experiences all 4 seasons and is truly breathtaking all year round.


This has inspired Brad & Kara to create Venus & Harley, specializing in Photography, Film Making, Visual Media Branding and hosting Scenic Photography Tours and Workshops for those wanting to discover the beauty, that awaits them here in the High Country Hamlets.

"We are truly in heaven living in this beautiful place & so lucky to be working, using the experience & skills we have acquired over the years. 

It made sense that we would put that all together & work with other businesses wanting to create their own visual brand that represents who they are and what they have to offer their customers and for us to share our wonderful scenic micro-region with visitors"
