Hi My name is Vaughan I've been doing a lot of photography all over Melbourne.
I studied at James Cook University in Townsville QLD for two years and previously did two years in high School with black and white developing in the old fashioned dark room.
Though over time the need for cash and steady work took over my life. I've partied hard in hospitality and traveled Australia as much as possible but now settled down in good old Cairns. I'm working as Porter by day and doing assistant photographic work where I can.
James Buchanan has helped me learn alot in the area of what to do when it comes to my photography along with Jason Comans.
I've also worked with Az Jackson of honey agencies in the gold coast and while we got along it was great but since I had to decline the work for it's content for my partner at the time I'm sad to say the friendship has soured. Great photographer and interesting person...
I'm doing everything at the moment from holding the occasional event, Glamour, Fashion, Advertising,
Tim McGregor Well i personally wouldn't let anyone I didn't trust fully near my child or partner, and we had a wonderful session together.
I don't know what's going on but as long as I've known (since before you even photographed human's, when you were taking nature shots) you you've been nothing but ethical, professional and trustworthy in your endeavours related to photography, modelling, personal photography or otherwise, enough so that I'd still continue to have you photograph my family as it grows and they develop if you were still in Melbourne.
James Carne VK makes me look sexy! I like being sexy
Stephanie Wynne My mother consented to all of my swimwear shoots in order to build my profile, and there are documents to prove that. My first shoot was very professional and my mother was present, since then I'm glad to say that both my mother and I have a very strong bond with you and every photoshoot I participate in is not only still professional but also a place I feel very comfortable in due to the fact we have gained a friendship from our work together which is something you don't find very often. Every time we hang out (and my mother is aware of it every time) I'm able to forget my worries and have a good laugh for a few hours, not to mention you have helped me in various ways which have given me the ability to do what I do today (such as helping me gain my 100 hours in my log book to get my P's). My mother and I are very thankful for everything, and we will continue to recommend you to everyone, young and old.
Skye-April Cullen your actual so lovely vaughan, defiantly not the creepy type, one of my closer friends in this town too
Tim Field Vk you helped bring my confidence back and i am lucky for that , ignore the negative people in life your better then that and now i feel postive about myself so thanks bud your like brother to me appreciate VK makes me feel more self confident and beautiful no more low self esteem since modelling helps boost my confidence
Michelle King I absolutely love working with Vaughan. He takes the time to make sure I get the shots/ look I want as well bringing in his creative flair. I felt really relaxed & comfortable with him, just like hanging out with a mate. I'd recommend Vaughan to anyone looking for great shots & a fun session
Erica-louise Hutchison Pretty much the same as Tim (apart from not knowing you for as long lol), and even though we are friends, while your camera was in your hands you were professional and respectable, especially when taking the top less back photos of myself and Tim, that I requested.
I trust you enough that I recommend you to a very good female friend of mine.
Jacinta Nowlan Working with Vaughan is such a pleasure. Considering I'm not a model and have no idea what I'm doing 99% of the time, VK provides a comfortable and safe atmosphere where nobody has to feel awkward about a thing. As said above, the shoots are really chilled out and exactly like hanging out with a mate with the outcome of professional pictures! Thanks a heap for everything
Bianca May I enjoyed my photo shoot with Vaughan. I am glad I was able to work with him before I moved to Sydney. The one time I got the opportunity to do a shoot, I found it to be very pleasant and comfortable. Had a great fun time and a wonderful experience. Thank you
Kyle Mesner You were the ultimate professional in the shoot I did. You never made it awkward or uncomfortable for me even though it could have been an awkward time. I have nothing but nice things to say about you personally and the photography business you run.
Adam Ratkovic Photoshoots with vk are the most fun I've had in a shoot, his work reflects on what his clients are looking for and his funny personality just makes the environment more comfortable with any concept. I couldn't be happier with the end result. When's our next shoot?
Tim Porter It is plainly obvious dude that the lies being spread are not going to spread far as ur true character will shine through. You have an abundance of support! Sleep with a smile on ur face my friend
Jessica Elizabeth Wouldn't ask for a better man behind the lens. Professional, fun and just an all round decent guy.
Shaylee Dolan I think you're a wonderful photographer- heaps of fun to shoot with and such a great outcome with your work, you take it very seriously and I feel very comfortable working with you
Jake Fidler Absolutely awesome experience, very professional heaps of fun, you are encouraging but always stay within the models comfort zone
Katje Pyne It was more than 10 years ago I had a shoot with Vaughan Neilson. I've known him 15 years and photography has always been his passion, I've seen his work go from strength to strength during this time. Even though at the time I had the shoot I was a long standing friend of his, he certainly didn't make me feel uncomfortable or forced into anything I didn't want to do. He was professional and the photoshoot definitely was not sleazy in front of the lens or behind it.
Robyn Barbs: i love the photos that vaughan did, and we had a lot of fun on the day, he was really professional and made me very at ease.
Krystyna Zagrzejewski I love shooting with Vaughan Neilson! Everytime we shoot we have a ball! Always fun, always professional and the photos are always awesome! Such a pleasure!
Carissa Crammond i have worked with vaughan on several occassions and he had always been very professional. makes you few comfortable and gives enough direction if you are unsure of anything. can't wait to work with him again :)
Maêva Thuringwethil Always been a pleasure to work with Vaughan ! Had the opportunity to work couple of time with him and always enjoyed his ability to make you feel confortable, his sense of humour and great profesional work and behavious.
Steph 'Pixie' Byrne Vaughan has opened up many oppotunities just through his fun and enjoyable shoots! A man of talent and profession, it would be near impossible to gain the same amazing photos with his unique eye for beauty. xoxoxox
Verena Noder always good fun to work with Vaughan. He is an awesome guy and passionated photographer with a great talent. Give him a cam and he will give you joy :D
David Keen Vaughan is always generous with his time, is easy going, and is great to shoot with. Looking forward to the next one soon! :)
Hannah Dillema Vaughan I had an amazing time working with you! It is so comfortable working with you and we have fun! But overall the photos look fantastic! I look forward to the next time!
Jennifer T Ngo Where can i surely start, having a photoshoot with you doesn't feel like we're actually shooting or working... time flies and I enjoy every second of it, you make us feel so comfy and relax, it's lie we're just hanging out taking photos for fun, you bond and communicate with people you work with, that's great. This was my actual first time shooting something like this and I wasn't nervous as I would have been it was another photographer. I just want to say thank you for your time and work looks amazing! you've edited so much!:) hope and all the best to your future work! thank you again Jenn!xo
Just wanted to thank you for shooting me the other day! the photos came out great.. and your work it excellent! I really appreciate it and would love to shoot with you again in the future! I hope my shots were beneficial for you too!
