It all began in London, January 1994. I had worked as a hairdresser and session stylist all over Australia and Europe and frequently found myself assisting photographers during photoshoots. This practical experience gave me a strong eye for detail as well as a love for film.

In a moment of lucidity I decided to switch careers and pursue photography.

I excelled in learning the formal techniques of lighting and composition. Armed with new skills and a love for work, I set out on a creative journey with a mission: to create high-impact visuals for commercial clients in the fields that interest me the most. Beauty, fashion, commercial and architecture.

In the last 20 years I have worked with great people from all over the world, in turn gaining invaluable industry experience and knowledge.

My goal is to always exceed the client’s expectations using a combination of creative inspiration, keen insights, and sharply honed skills

Saverio Marfia Photography is located in Sydney Australia and is available of onsite shoots in Australia and Internationally.

So what are you waiting for? Let’s work together to create the high-impact visuals you need for success.

What my clients say


Saverio is a consummate professional and a brilliant visual story teller. I have worked with Saverio on many projects including; client and staff functions, social content, product launches and facility upgrades. I found Saverio understood campaign concepts and his interpretation of the brief was always spot on.

Simon, Automotive Dealer Principal


Having a hairstylist background is quite obvious when you look into Saverio’s photography. There is a composition aspect that gives every image a memorable imprint on one's texture and shape of the hair. I am grateful for his experience and as a publisher of hair and beauty magazines, I need quick thinking and creative flair to be on point. His work delights, pushes his craft to new heights and it is always a pleasure to work with him.

Linda Woodhead – Chief Editor and Publisher of Hair Biz and Beauty Biz Magazines


I have worked with Saverio many times on fashion shoots for our brands, look books and fashion campaigns. He is a great and very positive photographer to work with. he is extremely professional and has so many great creative ideas. He always goes above and beyond to get the perfect shot. I know my work as a Fashion designer is in good hands with him and all our clients are always very impressed with the outcome for our brands. In two words! Highly recommended.

Gabriela Pires Beachwear


My work, sculptures with light, is a headache for photographers as it is very difficult to achieve a balance between the colour of the pieces and the light they emanate. They require a fine eye and the ability to look for clever solutions to problem-solve. Saverio can capture this like no other photographer in the years that we have worked together. Very Patient and generous with the extra time that this requires, he has always pleased and surprised me with his photos of my body of artwork.

Peter Balsamo – J the Colour


Saverio and the team were a dream to work with – they were super quick and responsive with quoting and all the pre-production before the shoot. Which meant the day ran very smoothly. Post production/retouching was also handled quickly and with a considerable amount of care. Nothing was ever a problem – this resulted in a very happy client. I can’t recommend Saverio more highly and I am looking forward to working with team again soon.

Rocco Nasso – De Lorenzo Hair Care


Saverio experience as ex hairdresser. I could not have asked for a more experienced, professional and talented photographer for our projects and awards for loreal. As a Hairdresser, I was extremely tied up with the production of the hair colour and was made to feel very comfortable with the pre-production of the shoot. Saverio was available to talk through all the details including my vision for what the photographs would look like, there was a breakdown of everything on email, from the style of the photograph to the makeup. Saverio’s professional and attention to the detail made it easy for myself and team that participated. The team was very relaxed in the day and that allowed them to only focus on the hair. We look forward to working with Saverio again.

Michael Belcastro – Creative -Director Belcastro Hair


Saverio Marfia is one of the most artistic and focused photographers I have worked with. His aesthetic and style can change in a heartbeat to suit any brief or project requirement. I couldn't wave his flag any more with enthusiasm.

Anthony Novak - Director of Communicorp


Saverio is an excellent photographer and a pleasure to work with. He understands the architectural briefs in the blink of an eye and produces, an outstanding collection of photos with no on-site issues (if you are commissioning detail architectural images). He goes the extra mile to get the best shots, even if that means returning to a site again and again. He is a true professional

Rachelle Bundis – Director of sketch Lab


Saverio is very artistic in his work and brought out the best, visually, from the food shots for our restaurant. it is great to see the talent to be a foodie as well and not just as a photographer. He brought our dishes to life and showcased our flavours in our menu. No hesitation and we hire him ongoing now for our business needs!
