Lens to Life

Best Friends

Every few years we at Lens to Life Photography attempt to give ‘something back’ by creating our series of charity books.  These coffee table art books feature beautiful portraiture and we are pleased to say that as a combined effort these books have raised well over $35,000 for charity.

Late last year Lens to Life Photographer Lucas Piera lost his mum to a very sudden and devastating stroke, it was this personal experience that prompted him to devote the teams latest charity project to The Stroke Foundation.


What is the BEST FRIENDS COFFEE TABLE BOOK? The Best Friends Coffee Table book is a charity project created by Lens to Life Photography in an effort to help fundraise for The Stroke Foundation.

What is in it for the customer? In addition to helping raise much needed funds for The Stroke Foundation and have priceless portraits taken of you, your family and your pets, you will also have the opportunity to purchase photographs from your photography session and one of your images will be chosen to be printed in the Best Friends Coffee table book.

When does the project finish? This is a year long project, for a $70 participation fee all of which will be forwarded to The Stroke Foundation, all singles, couples or families who have a pet have a great opportunity of having a professional portrait taken that will appear in an inspirational book, called “Best Friends – People & their pets.” Photography sessions can still be held until October 2018.

Who are the photographers? Lens to Life Photography is an award winning photography studio based on Phillip Island.

Does it work? Over the years our previous books have raised well over $35,000 for charity.

Can I have all the family photographed?  We are very happy to photograph the whole family at no extra cost, so you can take full advantage of the photography session.

Where does the session take place?  All sessions must be done on Phillip Island or surrounds.

Can I purchase photographs? Yes, you will be given the opportunity to purchase photographs. Images start from $80, with special collections available.

What happens after the session? About two to three weeks after the photo-shoot we will meet with you again at our studio on Phillip Island for you to view the images.  This is when you will have the opportunity to view your images and purchase anything if you so wish (however there is no obligation to buy).

Will my photograph be in the book? Yes, all those who pay their participation fee and are photographed will be in the book.

Do I get to choose the photograph for the book? The graphic designer will choose all the photographs in the book to ensure that the design is balanced.

When will the book be published?  We hope to have the books published before the end of 2018.

Where can I buy the book? The book may be purchased from Lens to Life Photography.
