Light Pop Photography was established in 2008 by Margaret Papadopoulos and Nathan James. Their professional practice includes architectural, interior and fine art photography.
The unique and evocative nature of Light Pop Photography's commercial practice stems from Margaret and Nathan's background in fine art & design. Consequently, they have been commissioned by leading architects, designers, builders and proprietors to photograph many award winning public buildings and private estates.
Margaret and Nathan’s fine art photography appears, at first glance, to capture scenes of tranquillity, serenity and beauty. These initial impressions however, often give way to a sense of unease or trepidation, hinting at the darker themes found in iconic cult cinema such as No Country for Old Men or in traditional European fairy tales and folklore.
Margaret studied photography at the National Art School, graduating with a Diploma of Fine Arts. She continued her studies at Sydney College of the Arts - The University of Sydney, completing a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Photography). Whilst studying, Margaret taught Photography and art at The University of New South Wales. She later worked with the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia and with French luxury labels, Chanel and Longchamp. Margaret's work has been exhibited in galleries in Sydney and Melbourne.
Nathan studied Industrial Design at The University of New South Wales and has worked in the Sydney art sector for over 15 years, including with the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia and with the Powerhouse Museum. Nathan has curated successful contemporary art exhibitions and is also a practising lawyer.
