Pleased to meet you, my name is Pete Davis and photography has been my passion since I was 13. I am a positivist, whose desire is to create the best possible work I can, for you!
Not Negative is the product of late nights editing, a few too many coffees and years of practice behind the lens. I started Not Negative in 2014 and since then have been photographing ten to twenty weddings a year. Each one helping me to build my brand and image to what it is today.
I have been fortunate enough to have had the pleasure of working with some amazing videographers. Recently I made the decision to outsource videography to them, so I can continue to better myself as a photographer.
A little about myself. I have a passion for the outdoors! Whether it is surfing, spearfishing, snowboarding, skating or hiking with my film camera. So bush bashing, getting muddy or travelling for work doesn't bother me in the slightest! I'm also going to graduate my Bachelor of Education (Primary) at the end of this year! The year 2020 will involve my wife and I living at one of the coastlines of Victoria and doing relief teaching, and running Not Negative.
Integral to my business is a desire to develop personal relationships with my clients so we're communicating well and enjoying the experience of working together. This might look like us having a coffee date or two before the wedding, grabbing a beer after work to get to know one another and go over the juicy details of your big day!
(Added bonus: affordable). Find my contact details at the bottom of the page.
Time to have a cheeky look at some of my images below.

Pete is an absolute legend! He spent the whole day with us, making sure he captured every moment! He was so much fun to have around and our whole bridal party commented on how amazing he was! I felt like Pete was just as excited about our photos on the day as we were! He got some prints back to us the very next day because he was just so excited to show us how amazing they turned out! Now every time we look back on our amazing photos we will also remember how much fun we had taking them! Thanks so much Pete!!!
Pete was the photographer at my mates wedding a few weeks ago. It was great to have someone so positive and friendly taking photos. He wasn’t shy at all which made his ability to capture the moments that many photographers would miss. I would 100% recommend to anybody looking for a talented photographer. Thanks again pete!
