The Picture Desk is the agency of award winning photographer Des Harris.

Having spent many years in Europe and Australia, working in and managing commercial photographic studios, Des has a 35 year background in photojournalism, corporate and architecture photography. His contemporary, quirky style is quick to adapt to the needs of the individual. Des is a Member of the AIPP/ACMP (Australian Institute of Professional Photography/Australian Commercial and Media Photographers). He is a member of the FEP (Federation of European Photographers), the MEAA (Media, Entertainment and Arts Alliance).

In November 2012, Des moved to Paris where he spent 3 years photographing for architecture, real estate and corporate and press clients. He also provided personalised photography training to individuals and small groups. He returned to Sydney late 2015.
