About Glenn & Thalassa

Glenn Bisdee

Glenn Bisdee and Thalassa Kawachi– photographers

Glenn Bisdee’s flamboyant, likable personality makes him a great person to work with. He listens, he sees, he creates. With over 15 years of published photographic experience – wedding, fashion, lifestyle and advertising – you won’t be disappointed with his photos. Trained by Metallica’s photographer Jason Reposar in Hawaii and Australia, he passionately utilizes his creative talent – the skill of capturing ‘that moment’, a perfectionist’s eye for detail and ability to get the best shot. He always applies his extensive, varied marketing background, and creativity to EVERY photo shoot. Glenn has a full suite of photographic equipment and a mobile Bowens studio – but it is his ‘attitude’ that brings it all together to create images that make an impact.

Glenn sets himself apart by creating ‘fashion weddings’ – using full fashion photography studio setups at to push the wedding photography boundaries.
