Hello and welcome.


My name is Joanne, but everyone calls me Jo.

I’ve been enthusiastic about photography for as long as I can remember, but only in the past ten years did I decide to get serious about it. I enrolled in a Bachelor of Photography at Queensland College of Art which was the best decision I ever made. I learned so much!

I continue to grow and learn as a photographer every day.

I am living proof that anyone can acheive their dreams if they are determined, believe in themselves, and work hard.

You see I am visually impaired, in fact, classifed as borderline legally blind.

Some people thought me incapable of professional photography as a vocation, others just look at me funny when I tell them. ;)

Then there are the people in my life whose love and support have given me the confidence and drive to succeed. For this I am eternally grateful. (you know who you are)


If you would like a personalised calendar or calendars created just choose 12 or 13 favourite images, email me their titles, and I will make one up for you.


Iif you would like an image printed on a different medium, and/or printed larger than is offered by Red Bubble email me and we can negotiate a price and delivery.

I am available for commissioned work. Email for further information.
