Hi, I'm Xander

I am a photographer, photo-educator and adventurer based in Western Australia. I am the owner and lead instructor at Xander Kabat Photography. I have been a professional photographer since 2009. As a university level educator, I have an extensive background in teaching and mentoring.

I have been taking pictures since childhood, and I cannot remember a time when photography was not an important part of my life.  I am passionate about landscape, travel, and wild-place photography. My photographic portfolio spans the globe, covering all 7 continents including Antarctica. My images attempt to tell a story of life on this planet by combining my passion for exploring diverse cultures and capturing the natural world. I have had my work published around the world, including magazine covers.

I started Xander Kabat Photography, because I found that most professional photographer studios have adopted a cookie cutter approach to photography. Almost every shot uses the same studio, the same lighting, the same background, while this is probably the most profitable business model, it does not realise your vison only the accountant’s. I believe that my job is not only using my technical photography skills, but also to really listen to your ideas and vision and make them a reality. Your photoshoot should be collaborative effort, combining my skills and experience with your vision and ideas to produce images that you will love.

“Simply put, no matter where I go, if that is in my backyard of Western Australia or an African jungle, Antarctica or the cities of Europe, I am always amazed at the infinite beauty and wonder of this delicate planet we live on.


My hope is that I can share my Images of Infinite Wonder and beauty of our home planet and show you some of the things I have been fortunate enough to experience
