About

Giselle Natassia is a concept-driven photographer specialising in advertising, documentary and entertainment photography. She has studied a BA in Creative Advertising Design and a Bachelor of Creative Industries in Photomedia. Although  still honing her craft, she has won numerous awards and has been published both at home and abroad, publications include National Geographic, Vice Magazine and Pilerats. Constantly oscillating between dark and colourful themes, her skills best present themselves in the fusing of morbid, bizarre, romantic and tragic themes. Slightly less perverse than “fetish”, more extreme than “fashion”, Giselle’s macabre-glamour approach to photography is sure to raise eyebrows and appeal to those with an eye for the unusual. When without her camera, Giselle is busy slaying zombies in various video games.
