With a passion for both live music (jazz in particular) and photography, Mish captures the spirit of jazz and aims to raise the profile of this often misunderstood genre of music.


Based in Brisbane, Australia, but with experience around the world, Mish is a professional photographer specialising in live music, performance and event filming, editing and production. Creating a 3-10min promotional short film for clients to use on their websites and social media marketing.

I believe in combining video and audio with traditional still photography narrative.  This means all elements compliment the visual story and broadens the viewers opportunity to engage with the story and subject more directly and intimately.

I have experience in capturing live music performed at various venues including The Brisbane Jazz Club, The Arts Centre Gold Coast, Bluesfest, The University of Queenslands’ School of Music – Nickson Room, Redlands Sports Club, Brisbane Powerhouse and Brisbane Festival’s Courier Mail Spiegeltent. See my blog for links to You Tube clips.

Mish combines her two favourite artforms to create unique and inspiring imagery that captures a sensitive, human side to an event or performance.

“I have a background in science, graphic design and photography. Photography combines the technical side of my brain, with the creative side, and gives me a medium to express to the world, what I see and feel.”

I have studied photography, film and animation in Brisbane and have been working on many projects involving live music and the arts. These have included creating films for community events such as the Brisbane City Council’s  ‘Saviours of the Lost Arts’, ‘Home is Where The Hall Is’ and ‘Something Fishy’ family events. I recently worked as the cinematographer on a short film in London called ‘Peace, A Child’s Dream’ which is due to be released in September 2013. I have captured and produced several short promotional videos for Moreton Bay Regional Council’s Decades Festival, and the Nambour and Brisbane Garden Expos, the Brisbane International Jazz Festival each year, and Im starting to film and produce music documentaries!
