About Us

Dale Sharpe

As Dale Sharpe and Karlie Russell, we make up the team at DK Photography, based on the picturesque Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia.

Karlie has loved travel & photography growing up, and moved around Australia snapping this incredible country and one day dreaming of taking it further.

Karlie Russell

Dale’s love for photography has also been ingrained with him from a young age. He began photographing 15 years ago when he started out in real estate photography, and moved into portraiture and events over the coming years, making this his full time career 5 years ago.

It was at this time that Karlie moved to Queensland from Western Australia. One afternoon, we met shooting a sunset, and from there, our love for each other and photography blossomed. We both share a strong passion for landscape, seascape and astrophotography so shortly after meeting, we created DK Photography. Since then, we’ve photographed all around Australia, New Zealand, from the Arctic Circle, Canada to the USA and all across Asia.

We both just love photography, as it has taken us both on adventures to explore new and interesting locations across the world. The ability to express ourselves through our work and share these beautiful moments we capture with you, and connect with people through our imagery is what drives our passion.

We hope that our work inspires others to also chase their dreams.

We hope you enjoy these images as much as we loved creating them and welcome you to follow our journey…

Dale and Karlie.
