Vettas Media is a Digital Media Agency, based in Sydney Australia, with clients and contractors across the globe.
The foundations of Vettas Media have been built on the hard work and dedication of Lead Photographer, Michael Vettas, since its inception in late 2007.
Having used a camera on and off over the years, ‘taking photos’, never in my most imaginative dreams did I envisage that in 2013, only six short years from when I first took more of an interest in photography, I would be travelling World working for large corporate clients such as Honda Australia, the Australian Football League (AFL) and Gymnastics Australia, to name but a few, ‘creating images’ of elite sporting athletes for my clients at professional sporting events. ‘Taking photos’, has now evolved in to, ‘Creating Images’.
My focus and passion centers around action sports. The raw emotion and unpredictability of it draws me in, time and time again. Having played sport competitively from a young age, and with a solid and successful junior tennis background, this has given me that passion, drive and dedication to strive to produce the highest quality product. The knowledge and discipline I learned has enabled me to capture the special moments, no matter what conditions, under what circumstances and no matter what subject is in focus.
My passions lie with AFL, Gymnastics, Motorsport, in the form of Rally, Mountain Bike Racing and Tennis. I have been the official supplier of images for the AFL Sydney Competition since 2008. In that same year I began covering the Australian Rally Championship for Fast Fours Magazine, I am now in my 7th season covering the championship, and the official supplier of media to Australian Classic Rally Cars, Honda Australia, Innate Motorsport Team, Repco Rally Team, Tom Wilde Motorsport, Motorsport News, Express Media Group and a number of other newspapers, media outlets and teams.
While my main focus has been AFL and the Australian Rally Championship, I have also had the privilege of covering the National Championships for Gymnastic Australia since 2010, contracted to Kangaroo Photos. I also provide images on a regular basis to a number of Sport Image Agencies, including, aurora images, marathon-photos, smp images, supersportimages and winkipopmedia where I have photographed International Hockey Tournaments, State Netball Championships, Adventure racing, Trail Running, Soccer and much much more.
In early 2014 I became an Olympus Australia Ambassador, using the OM-D E-M1 system showcasing the possibilities of the micro 4:3 system.
In 2014 I also began covering the WRC World Rally Championship internationally for a variety of commercial and editorial clients and traveled to Argentina, Portugal, Italy, France and Spain.
Since I began my focus has not changed, and will remain the same no matter what; To deliver the highest quality product, go above and beyond to deliver that product, and capture moments in time, for clients to relive, over and over again.
If you feel my work and my ethos ticks all the boxes don’t hesitate to contact us today.
