Shannyn Higgins is a photographer based in Fitzroy, Melbourne. Her versatile and adaptive style has her work span across portraiture, lifestyle and travel photography. 

Hailing from the Kimberleys in Western Australia, Shannyn's nomadic childhood and her passion for travel started at an early age. With a one way ticket to Europe at 19, she spent the next ten years crewing boats around the world.  

While living in Vancouver, Canada, Shannyn pursued her professional photography career and works with clients all over the world. Her years spent at sea and need to be near water is a frequent theme to her work, and she now balances her love of exploring and storytelling through her travel and lifestyle photography. 

Side projects; 

-  'i woke up like this' explores the idiosyncratic behaviours we each have around sleep and how we keen our bedrooms. 

Duality is an international project and a concept that brings together writers and visual artists to explore their narrative through words, artwork and photography. Shannyn is the creator and director of Duality and to date, she has photographed 100 artists across Vancouver and Melbourne. New cities to be announced soon.
