Websites, branding & design

We specialise in websites. As a team of scientists turned photographers, this is clearly a strength that’s reflected in our portfolio. Clients mostly hire us to help them build their websites from scratch, including logos and imagery. You can read about how that works here.



Communication strategies, planning & support

A beautiful website is like a new car. It’s not very useful if you don’t know where you’re going or have the fuel to get there. Our communication planning & support is that fuel. We facilitate goal-setting & mindset, write communication strategies and offer full-service content creation and social-media support.


Expedition documentation & video

The quality of our photography & video work means we often get invited to join expeditions. That suits us fine, because we’re also very experienced in the field. We like to think we bring a nice dash of creative energy to these trips, that we’re easy to work with and have a good eye.

This video Tom Rayner shot in Peru got 1.3 million views on the National Geographic Facebook page.


Photo shoots

We also do photoshoots for clients locally. These might be portraits of staff, team photos or to build galleries of people working in the lab or field. We understand science and scientists. We’ve recently been working with the Australian Defence Science and Technology Group, through our collaboration with Science in Public, and the Max Plank Institute in Germany.

Tom Rayner shot a lot of imagery for Australia’s Defence Science and Technology Group, including material for the website, a calendar, a series of portraits for posters and magazine features.


What our clients are saying…


“Tenure Chasers is awesome. In less than a week, our communication was transformed. I immediately had colleagues compliment the site and consider revising theirs. Tom’s expertise is uniquely set up to enhance communication of academics. Tenure Chasers does that. And they do it well!”

Dr Jeff Wesner, South Dakota State University.


“Tom’s scientific training was a huge asset for completing our project. His expertise in scientific communication was also very helpful. Tom was always responsive to questions and proactive in finding solutions. Top notch service all the way around.”

Dr Seth Walk, Montana State University.
