What’s your link to Townsville?
I was raised in Townsville after my parents moved there from Germany. I studied New Media Arts at James Cook University, with a focus on photography, sound design and journalism.
Where are you now?
Living in Brisbane with my partner Eloise. I photograph weddings and work for MMG Photo + Cinema. I’d like to develop my skills further in commercial photography or get into teaching at one of the local colleges for creative industries.
How did your time in Townsville set you up for success?
Townsville set me up with my tertiary studies, work experience and years of being self-employed in a highly competitive industry. I was fortunate to photograph many weddings from Port Douglas to Airlie Beach, as well as the Atherton Tablelands – some of my favourite locations.
Do you still come ‘home’ to Townsville to visit?
I’m looking forward to visiting family in Townsville this year. My first stops will include Coffee Dominion and The Strand — I think it’s one of the best beaches in the country.
