Co-founder, Angus Benham
Angus Benham grew up in the small town of Kawerau, New Zealand where his love for nature and the great outdoors started at an early age. His adventure with photography and print began with photographic editing of electron micrograph scans while completing a Master of Science degree in Aquatic Biology. Subsequently, following an extended trip to Africa, he fell in love with being able to capture and then print the breathtaking beauty he was experiencing.
After completing his masters in Aquatic Biology, he made the big move to Sydney where he met Shaun, who later became the “sha” of Gusha, and who was instrumental in starting their print business. Angus and Shaun started experimenting with printing the photos in different ways, and began offering print services mostly to photographers, initially working from Shaun's home at Frenchs Forest.
Angus now lives in Newcastle with his wife, Tamara, and their three boys Edward, Duke and Solomon.
