Give us a little insight into who you are and how you started taking photographs?
Hello! I’m Janneke, fashion & wedding photographer based on the Sunshine Coast in beautiful Queensland.
Describe your photography style in 3 words?
Raw, spontaneous, adventurous.
What are some of your favourite shoots you have done to date?
My favourite shoots are usually the simplest ones; an interesting model, not too much clothing, a beautiful outdoor location with textures and amazing light. Of course loved the Lilya shoot we did, love just being out in nature with a beautiful model and insanely good clothing, it’s the best!
We loved working with you on the LILYA AW15 Campaign, whats do you love most about shooting fashion?
Awww thank you! Working with you guys was a dream! Can we do it again? Hehe! Definitely love that every shoot is so different and challenges me in ways I’ve never been challenged before. I love being able to shoot with amazing creatives who inspire and push me to be a better photographer.
When you are not behind the lens, what can we find you doing?
Haha usually behind my computer editing or emailing. But I try and get away from the computer as much as possible. Love getting a good coffee from my local coffee shop, taking my dog down to the beach, hanging out with other creatives and trawling through Pinterest (waste so much time on there!).
Who or what inspires you creatively?
Music is easily my biggest inspiration, right now I’m loving the likes of Odesza, Fishing, Banks, SOHN, Catching Flies, Tycho etc. I’m also hugely inspired by other creatives; one of my close friends Isobel Badin is an insane creative genius, everything she does just blows my mind. My photography mentor, Julian Beattie is just my photography idol, I hope one day to be able to shoot like him. Otherwise photographers like Brydie Mack, Parker Fitzgerald, Magdalena Wosinska, Chris Searl, Asher Moss, Hugh Forte, Dylan & Sara and Nordica.
