Hello. I am Louise Gronold, an APP (Accredited Professional Photographer) who is driven to help you flourish by creating personalised images for you, your family or business.
Being camera shy myself, I know how you feel when it's time for your portrait. However, my experience has led me to firmly believe we are all photogenic, we just may not have had the right photographer yet.
I am not sure many photographers begin their careers with a Degree in Agricultural Science and 10 years working in primary industries and natural resource management. But this is how mine started, and it has given me a deep understanding, appreciation and connection with the land and those living on it.
My camera was never been far away during this my work, but making a career of it never entered my head until needing time off for health reasons when I began dabbling in earnest and people began requesting photographic services.
In 2010 I registered my business, joined the (AIPP) Australian Institute of Professional Photography and began laying the foundation for a small business whilst our family grew. Since then, I have traveled and attended conferences, training, workshops, and work with mentors to build the my skills and the business so I can serve outback Qld to the best of my ability.
I value upfront honesty, personalised service and great value - both products and service. As such when you purchase a photography collection, there will be everything included, no more to pay. This means you can budget for personal or business photography, and be 100% confident there are no hidden extras (unless you want to purchase more that is).
I do offer collections but the majority of my clients want a bespoke service. So let me create the perfect collection for you or your business to meet your needs and budget.
Over the years, I have received a number of awards from a range of exhibitions and competitions. These include the local Barcaldine Art Exhibition which is judged by different professional artists each year, and the Queensland Professional Photography Awards (QPPA).

It is really exciting and fulfilling knowing your art connected with someone else and now it is bringing joy them. Currently, my artworks are hanging all across Australia.
