Jerry Ghinois is known as one of the top five wedding photographers in the world. He is based out of Australia and travels internationally on photographic assignments and speaking events. He has photographed weddings in Australia, throughout the United States, Rome, Florence, Paris, the United Kingdom and Greece. In 2004 Jerry won the title of Master of Photography by the A.I.P.P (Australian Institute of Professional Photography).

In 1997, Jerry decided to go out on his own and start his own business and is now one of Australia's largest and most respected studios.
