Looking for a photographer?


"Jo has always taken such amazing photos of all our special 'life' moments. She has been with us from the start - our wedding, both pregnancies (and birth!), babies, 1st birthdays, family portraits. I wouldn't consider anyone else."

All you need to do is book and I'll take care of the rest. I'll ask all the right questions so I understand your needs, then I'll help you choose the location, outfits and ensure we get the perfect shots on the day.  Natural and authentic images of you and your loved ones.  I'll capture the energy and essence of childhood and the heartfelt interactions between each family member.

Hopefully you're here because you've been referred to me by a friend or family member.  I am so glad we have crossed paths!

My name is Joanna Kate Bowden.  I'm a portrait photographer based in Ashgrove, which is 5 minutes north-west of Brisbane city. I also travel throughout Australia and internationally for weddings, commercial work and specialty branding imagery.

Most of the time I shoot with natural sunlight indoors and outdoors, but I also have a portable lighting kit that allows me to bring my studio to you.

The majority of my work comes by referral.  I spend time prior to your shoot to ensure that I understand what it is you want - both in the imagery and the way your photographs are supplied to you. A shoot with me is fun and stress-free.

I offer you the choice of printed OR digital photographs. You can book and pay for your photo shoot, then after the shoot buy your favourite (print or digital) photographs, OR, you can pre-pay a digital file package, which combines both the shoot and files into one fantastically discounted package. I don't do high-pressure sales, so you can rest assured that you have the freedom to select only what you need, within your budget.

I'd love to meet you to create some absolutely awesome images that you'll be proud to show off to the world.

We are spoilt for choice in our beautiful city.  There are many breathtaking locations in and around Brisbane and beyond.  I am continually scouting for new locations to keep it fresh for my clients.  Places that I sometimes stumble upon while out mountain-bike riding or backdrops that might catch my eye just before sunset.

Some are well known for their beauty or iconic or features.  Others are secret and have been discovered by only me.

Whether it be a nautical, urban, oceanic, creekside, forestry, botanical, outback, mountainous, city or rustic location, there will be a backdrop to suit you.
