About Family Heritage Photos

ABOUT. Family Heritage Photos is a division of Silvershotz Pty Ltd founded in 1998. This new business was launched in October 2020 as a result of Covid19 lockdowns, and the dramatic increase in families researching their ancestry. Once family trees are created, then the next step is to catalogue your photos, and create a family heirloom album. This is where our business can help you with archival storage boxes, photo index sheets, scanning, restoration, album design and final production to create an album for future generations to enjoy.

Clive Waring is the founder and owner of Silvershotz, and one of Australia’s senior photographic industry professionals.

As a trained professional, Clive has had the experience of photographing more than 400 weddings and 70,000 portrait sessions in studios from Sydney, London, Hamburg, Brisbane, and now magical Maleny.  In 1998 he founded the Silvershotz group of companies, based out of Brisbane, which began importing and distributing photographic products from the UK and Europe. During that time he also established and published the Silvershotz photography art magazine from his UK office, which eventually grew to a distribution in 1400 bookstores across 47 countries. The 100th and final magazine was published in November 2019.
