Faie Davis’s career spans all things creative including photography, art direction, design, illustration, commercial film direction and writing.
Born in Wellington, New Zealand, Faie has won and judged creative awards all over the world and her work has been published in Germany, Australia and the Middle East. Faie is also the author/photographer of the acclaimed LOOKBOOK series featuring some of the world’s more unusual destinations and the indigenous peoples who live there. She is currently mounting a photographic expedition to the Sudan and Angola before returning to Namibia to complete her comprehensive photographic study of the Himba in Namibia, a project that has spanned over a decade.
Her previous career as one of Australia’s top advertising creative directors, started in the theatre, painting and creating sets and costumes for designers of the Australian Opera and Ballet Companies including Sir Sidney Nolan.
Her sojourn into advertising saw her headquartered in Asia where she famously co-created the ‘Singapore Girl’ campaign, the only advertising icon to be immortalized in London’s Madame Tussauds waxworks museum.
Her career in this field took her all over the world working with some of the industry’s greatest photographers until she returned to Australia to set up her own highly creative, boutique Agency. Here she created strategies and campaigns for world renowned clients including Louis Vuitton, Oroton, Sheridan, Georg Jensen, Ella Baché, The Ritz Carlton Hotels Group, Harpers Bazaar and many others.
