Why work with Dave and Nicola?

Brisbane based creative PR and marketing duo, Dave Blake and Nicola Inger first connected via Instagram in 2015 and from the outset realised their complementary skill set. An energetic match, the pair began producing engaging and inspiring content which eventually caught the attention of content-hungry brands

After being approached by a number of businesses to create video and image content for websites, Instagram and YouTube; the pair decided to expand their service offering to accommodate a growing gap in the market for affordable outsourced campaigns.

Both left degree qualified professions in the corporate world (Technology, Business, PR and Science respectively), to pursue a career providing creative content and direction to brands in the lifestyle, fashion, fitness, travel and health food arena.

In addition to running her own health & lifestyle empire, The Unrefined; Nicola is a qualified Business and PR consultant. Her experience to date includes working with well-known brands Skins, Lorna Jane, Amazonia, All Real Food, Urban Climb, Flight Centre, 2XU, Sport Le Moda and Laine Swimwear. 


Prior to immersing himself in visual storytelling, Dave had an extensive 10 year+ background in tech and advertising, and understands the influence of strong imagery on commercial and personal branding.  He also understands how to leverage technology to obtain great results for his clients, from pre and post-production workflow, to shooting for retouching and print.

In addition to helping emerging brands, Dave has also shot for major international brands like TagHeuer and has excellent working relationships with top-tier hair & makeup artists, stylists, models and their agencies in Australia and Intenationally.
