Hailey and Andrew Bartholomew are the co-founders and directors of You Can’t Be Serious (YCBS).

You Can’t Be Serious specialises in directing and producing online video content for commercial clients, TV ads, documentaries and photography.

Hailey is an award-winning photographer and film-maker who loves to inspire with colour and positivity. Andrew is an architectural photographer and designer and has been known to take the odd iPhone picture on Instagram.

Along with their two daughters, they travel the world in search of the work they love to do – making films that matter, and photography that you’ll never forget.

Together they have published a children’s book and accompanying short film, a photographic book named ‘365 Gratefuls’ and are available for public speaking engagements and workshops. If you have a creative project you’d like to chat to us about, please email us!

Other Projects

Andrew Bartholomew Architectural Photography

Andrew is an architectural photographer and designer. This website showcases his photographic work which combines his composition skills and a fascination with architectural history and construction. Andrew has photographed buildings in Brazil, Mexico, Cuba, Dubai, India, USA, Canada, New Zealand and Indonesia and is available for work nationwide in Australia.

365 Grateful

365 Grateful is a project started by Hailey back in 2008 that has grown into an online community, three short films and a book published world-wide by Penguin. During the project, Hailey took one photo every day of something she was grateful for. This discipline helped her to see and celebrate the good in her own life and affected not only the way she felt spiritually and physically but it improved her relationships with others too.

Ruby Who

Ruby Who? was created as a way to explain to children that having more ‘stuff’ doesn’t make life better; looking like the other kids won’t make you happy; it’s who you are when you’re being yourself that counts. The result is a short film and book that are playful, happy and poignant without being too preachy.

I Can Do This!

I Can Do This is a factual television series aimed at early teenagers by creators Hailey Bartholomew, James Greville and Laurel Davis.
