Works at: Nat McComas Photography er
What has been your favourite photography job?
To choose a favourite would be too hard! I loved photographing a wedding on the Fiji Islands and also a wedding at the beautiful Deux Bellettes in NSW. I loved doing a documentary commission for the Museum of Sydney – travelling around taking portraits of people and their pets. I love whenever I get to tell stories in pictures.
Who do you think is doing cool stuff in the creative industries?
Nine Lives Gallery in Brisbane, Comb Gallery at Tugun, Brisbane artist and poet Kylie Johnson, Bespoke Letterpress.
What was your first job?
My first photography job was a commission to take portraits at a young mothers group in Albion.
What’s the hardest challenge you’ve had to face work-wise?
Maintaining a healthy work and life balance. I love photographing so much that sometimes I forget I have other passions too.
What’s the biggest opportunity and challenge for Brisbane to become a truly “Creative City”?
I think we need more international photography & artist exhibitions when they are on tour. We seem to get skipped as most are hosted in Sydney and Melbourne.
What are some local upcoming events you recommend?
I’m looking forward to seeing the Josephine Ulrick photography exhibition at the Gold Coast at the end of March. ‘Boys with guns’ by Prudence Murphy at the Queensland Centre for Photography, South Bank. Pecha Kucha Brisbane in May and The Finders Keepers Markets in July.
