Whilst Aquabumps is known for its daily blog and fine art Gallery in Bondi – behind the scenes is a thriving content, brand, travel & partnership agency, run by Debbie & Uge Tan. You name it, if it’s happened in Bondi we’ve been a part of it – or we’ve created activations to amplify the brand’s stories to both our beach-loving community and theirs. We’ve also worked extensively with tourism partners on both stills and video content, and integrated the content through our channels to create brand campaigns for them.
Make a cuppa and review the last 15 years of our partnership work.

RM Williams X Aquabumps
In celebration of this Sunday’s Father’s Day, here’s the rare occasion I’m in front of the camera (not behind).
We’re so proud to be an Australian family business that crafts our gallery pieces right here, in Sydney and exports them globally.
Our motto is to keep it local; quality is at the heart of everything we do. I draw so much inspiration from iconic Aussie brands like @rmwilliams, which have stood the test of time.
VISA X Aquabumps
VIP clients from VISA were taken on a bespoke private tour on the coastal walk from Bronte Beach to our Bondi gallery – workshopping on how to take phone photography, discussing the best tips and tricks with light, and how to capture surf shots.
Carlsberg X Aquabumps
In support of the Irish Female soccer players paying in the FIFA world cup – Carlsberg 0% beer created a sand castle activation on Bondi Beach with a message to their soccer fans.

Land Rover Defender X Aquabumps
We collaborated with Land Rover Defender to celebrate their 75th Anniversary. A bespoke shoot in regional NSW, video content, and an event at the Promenade Restaurant in Bondi for key staff and media.

Christian Louboutin X Aquabumps
The infamous Christian Louboutin celebrated their new line of beach to bar footwear and accessories with a pop-up in Bondi. We produced both stills and video content to share across our platforms – as well as created a limited edition piece of art to be sold at the pop-up store.
Scots College X Aquabumps
We worked closely with the school on an exhibition of our Northern Territory work – to help raise money for their indigenous program at Scots. All artworks were auctioned off and a total of 18 boys received scholarships – an incredible opportunity for an amazing education, something we are very proud to be a part of.

Zimmermann X Aquabumps
From humble beginnings to an incredible global luxury brand – we partnered with Zimmermann with a range of Aquabumps images appearing on their Spring/Summer collection for 2023/24, which was sold globally throughout their stores and e-commerce store. A favourite partnership for Deb, who has loved the brand since its inception.
Lululemon X Aquabumps
To celebrate the biggest super Lululemon store in the Southern Hemisphere – Uge shot the Lulu team practicing yoga on Bondi Beach from a helicopter, followed by a breakfast at our Bondi Gallery. A limited run of T-shirts created with the image were gifted to their first 100 customers to purchase in the new Bondi Junction store.
Australian Vintage Wines
A celebration of Australian Summer across all the AVW portfolio we created a series of wine coolers that came as a gift with purchase with all wine purchased over the summer period. A highly successful partnership that has since been rolled out internationally to their Asian markets.
Snapchat X Aquabumps
In support of Snapchat’s charity of conserving the Great Barrier Reef – Uge shot this Iceberg activation and shared the images across our platform to create content for one of their biggest and most successful activations to date.
Cape Mentelle X Aquabumps
A content piece for both Cape Mentelle & us – taking Uge back to his childhood stomping ground in Margaret River to shoot both the area from above and Cape Mentelle to tell the history of this family business. This content was integrated across our channels and formed a huge campaign piece for Cape Mentelle’s celebration of their 50th Birthday. This was also celebrated at a sit-down dinner at the North Bondi Surf Club and Uge’s work creating an exhibition ‘Explore Your Horizon’ around the sit-down lunch.
This partnership also extended to a promotion over Christmas – seeing us package up the Cape Mentelle wine to give away with Aquabumps fine art purchases over November – January. Two finely crafted brands celebrating quality and craftsmanship.
Sunglass Hut X Aquabumps
Bespoke sunrise and sunset shooting tours with Uge in Bondi and a breakfast and evening event held at our Bondi Gallery was one of the most successful promotions they have run.
This also came off the back of a huge wall decal that rolled out across Sunglass Hut stores internationally of a wave Uge shot in Hawaii. A showstopper for retail and their eyewear collection made for the summer.
Dropbox X Dion Lee X Aquabumps
A huge creative undertaking of shooting the Australian Ballet dancers underwater – to tell the story of Dropbox paper, an online collaborative portal. Dion Lee designed the costumes that the dancers wore and we shot them underwater in a blackened Sydney Olympic Pool. The best of Uge’s work from the shoot formed an exhibition at our Bondi Gallery with 50% of the profits donated to the Australian Ballet – in our support of the Arts. Still one of our favourite brand partnerships to date.

An eyewear collection paired alongside our Bondi Book to tell the story of two brands originating from the shores of Bondi.
Canon X Aquabumps X Icebergs
Canon Master for Canon for 12 years. Over this time, we ran bespoke underwater photography sessions; sunrise shoots with tips and tricks and product info alongside our fine art pieces in the Aquabumps Gallery. We also pulled off our most extensive activation by lining the Icebergs pool with an Amalfi print printed on Canon printers, a pop-up bar with Santa Vittoria bespoke bottles, and an Italian exhibition on the south end of the deck.
Westfield X Aquabumps
We have done many of these across Sydney – showcasing both our local and international work and bringing life to shopping centres across the country. At Westfield Bondi we ran a promotion where every shopper who brought a gift card over the months of November and December received a small foam mount Aquabumps print as a value add – and this was hugely successful for the centre.
We LOVE big format. We have used some of our images in large format as building wraps in the city – to make something eye catching and beautiful of a development site.
Randwick Cancer Ward X Aquabumps
Large format wallpaper for the cancer ward in Sydney – still one of our favourite executions, bringing light and positivity to a space that can be confronting and hard for patients. A moment to escape – which is what Aquabumps is all about.
