Over 28 years ago, Queenslanders Hardy and Alison Ahlhaus saw a need to provide quality photographic services for businesses, the education sector (formals & graduations) and for private clients.
Harnessing a lifetime of photographic experience and a renowned reputation for excellence and attention to detail, Hardy and Alison brought it all together in 1990 creating Focal Point Photos.
Whilst the world has changed since 1990 with the explosion of smart-phones and digital photography, the community still recognizes the importance of professional photographic services to bring images to life and capture life in those images.
Whether it is a group of young people stepping out for their school formal, or some corporate headshots for marketing purposes, nobody captures the essence of an individual better than Focal Point Photos.
As photographic technology evolves at a rapid rate, Focal Point Photos has continually adapted to the changing environment by undergoing continual professional development and investing in modern and sophisticated equipment.
Alison Ahlhaus is a member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP. Hardy and Alison believe strongly in supporting the industry that has supported them so well over many years. Alison Ahlhaus has been a volunteer judge in national photographic awards and competitions for many years and is a highly accomplished and respected vocational educator and trainer in photography with TAFE Queensland South West over 20 years.
Every person or business for that matter has a story, and that story needs to be told through photography! Always looking to grow and innovate, Focal Point Photos took a huge step in 2013 when Hardy Ahlhaus became accredited with Google as a “Google Street View Trusted” photographer to provide 21st-century photographic services for businesses across Toowoomba, Brisbane, and South East Queensland.
Following his many successes as a Google Street View Trusted Photographer, in 2016, Hardy received accreditation from Google to offer his services across Australia. Same great service and exceptional photography, now available across the country
