Michelle is a former teacher, coach and athlete who has made a career out of doing something she loves. After completing Bachelor Degrees in Human Movement and Education at Deakin University, she taught for 8 years in the field of Drug and Health Education until she realised that she needed a change of direction. In 2009, Michelle decided to leap into the unknown and start her own photography business in search of something that would challenge and inspire her.  Ten years on, Michelle is now an award-winning sports photographer who has covered national and international sporting events including the ICC World Cup, The Ashes, multiple AFL Grand Finals, NRL State of Origin, ANZ Championship Netball & the NBL. She is also the official photographer of the Deakin Melbourne Boomers in the WNBL and has been the recipient of the WNBL Photograph of the Year award for six of the past seven seasons.

Michelle has extensive experience in corporate and commercial photography, working in both the public and private sector. She is also available for portrait work and is in her element when working with young children and families. 

In addition to her work with Michelle Couling Photography, Michelle also owns and runs White Line Images which specialises in team sports photography for local sporting Clubs and Associations.
