YBS Photos is the business name and trademark for the photography of Mike Magee. Born in Montreal, Canada before moving to New Zealand at a young age, photography has always been part of his life along with the desire to seek out new places, people and experiences.

Mike Magee lived and photographed extensively in Central America including Mayan Ceremonies and Carnaval before returning to Australia in 2009. He studied for several years at the Australian Centre for Photography while settling in Marrickville where his work has been exhibited, published and received awards.

2017 has been another busy year covering the amazing WOMADelaide Festival and various other projects while he is still working "From the Touchline" with the mighty Newtown Jets Rugby League Team.
