Team Divon

Divon Photography

Previously known as Beani Photography

The story behind our new name:

Beani Photography came together in 2008 to become one of Sydney’s well known photography studios, providing wedding, family and portrait photography services. We feel that our new name is the logical step we needed to take since we have a new studio in The Dymocks Building. It is located on 428 George Street, Sydney, where our team is driving the company forward today.

We’re proud of our long history and the trusted relationships we had built up over the years. I thank you for your continued support as we perpetually work towards our core purpose, capturing the perfect moments for you.

Should you have any questions, please contact our studio, on 02 9161 0000 or drop us a a few words in here.

Meet Franky

Founder / Principal Photographer

Why did you decide to become a photographer/videographer?
I am always a visual person, I’ve been doing graphical works for my whole life. My uncle gave me my first camera when I was 8, since then taking photos had become a huge part of my life.

What is your favourite thing to photograph?
Portraits! I’m fascinated by human faces and bodies. I love bringing my creative ideas to life and that has allowed me to win both national and international awards for my portraiture works.

Would you say that you’re an Artist?
Yes I would like to think so, as most of my awards are under fine arts category.

What’s your favourite leisurely activity?
I travel a lot. I promised myself I will go to at least one new city/country per year. I always travel alone, simply because I don’t have a schedule when I travel, everything just happen spontaneously.

You love doing Wedding sessions, does it ever get repetitive?
I believe all weddings are different and unique. I always try to pick up elements from my bride and groom and give them ideas to make their wedding more personal. Except for one repetitive action, I’ve never heard of anyone say “I DON’T” at the ceremony 😀

Do you mingle or do you dance?
I mingle, I dance like a robot, and trust me, you don’t want to see it…

What do you do, that you “must” do once a day?
Kiss my beautiful wife-to-be and tell her I love her

How do you like to eat your eggs?
Anyway, I love eggs, scramble, sunny side up, whole boil, but I must have it with salt together.

Would you go straight to the destination? Or take the scenic route?
Of course I’ll try to go with the scenic route if I have the luxury of time!

Are you a morning, afternoon, evening or night kind of person?
I always think I work faster, think better and more creative after the sun goes down.

Coffee or tea?
Large latte with 2 sugars and not too hot please.

If you could have a super-power what would it be and why?
Fly, I can then go anywhere whenever I wanted.
