Savannah van der Niet (Savvy Creative) is a photographer and graphic designer in Brisbane, Australia. Her work, shot predominantly on 35mm film, displays a certain awareness of the subjects she photographs, and celebrates the simplicity of life and human connection. With a tendency toward soft tones, it's a quiet testament to youth, and seeing the world with eyes of curiosity and exploration.

Her client list is a versatile mix of publications and companies such as Broadsheet, i-D Magazine, Frankie Magazine, Tedx, Disney, The Thousands, The Collective Hub and Acclaim Magazine. With a specific focus to the music industry, Savannah has worked directly for Jagjaguwar, Splendour in the Grass, BigSound, Paradise and Laneway, and directly for artists such as Chet Faker and Client Liaison.
