Josephine Carter (right) and Carola Bradshaw have so much in common that it was only a matter of time before they crossed paths.
“I was looking for a photographer to assist me with a design project when a mutual friend introduced me to Josi in 2014,” Carola says.
“When we caught up for coffee we were delighted to discover so many similarities — as well as being creatives, we both have a German heritage and moved to Townsville for love.”
Since that day, Carola and Josi have been firm friends and collaborators, each steadily growing their customer bases. Specialising in branding for small to medium-sized businesses as BlueBerriDesign, Carola is known for creating eye-catching logos, websites and signage. While talented professional photographer Josi has been busy shooting weddings, portraits and special events as josephine carter photography.
“It made sense for us to merge recently and cross-promote our complementary services to offer Townsville businesses corporate packages as a one-stop shop for branding,” Carola says.
“Josi and I share the same vision, ambitious attitude and work ethics. We motivate each other and encourage each other to think outside the box.”
Passionate about producing quality photos in a way that’s enjoyable and relaxing for her clients, Josi has a shoot on every afternoon, while her weekends are booked for weddings well in advance.
“It’s important to me to keep the photos real and capture a story, especially with family shoots and weddings,” Josi says.
“Carola and I see the world in a unique way and we’re focused on the finer details and bringing our clients’ visions to life. We’re able to put ourselves in the client’s shoes. Unlike the experience with some large corporations, where clients are just a number or a pay cheque, we take the time to get to know our clients and understand their goals.
“If you want efficient service, solutions for developing your online presence and help with being creative and bringing your brand to life, we’re the right partner for you.”
