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. Twelve 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 also spent 7 years as the official photographer for the Deakin Melbourne Boomers in the WNBL and was the recipient of the WNBL Photograph of the Year award for six of those 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. Michelle’s ability to connect with people of all ages is one of her greatest strengths, producing relaxed and genuine portraits that families will love.
In addition to her work with MCP, Michelle also owns and runs White Line Images which specialises in team sports photography for local sporting Clubs and Associations. Head over to White Line Images to view her work and see how you can have Michelle come and work with your local sporting Club.
High quality shots and a fun photo shoot. Time flew and didn’t feel staged. Captured the moments perfectly.
We love the photos Michelle took of our little family. We had a great time on the day and are very happy with the final product. I’d highly recommend her to anyone who wants an easy-to-work-with professional photographer.
My family has never had professional photos taken before. It can be hard to manage 3 kids and I don’t overly like studio images. After seeing Michelle’s photos on Facebook and chatting with her, I realized it doesn’t have to be hard. We spent 2 hours in the park having fun and playing (my kids warmed to her immediately) and suddenly I have almost 100 gorgeous images of my beautiful family. Breathtaking and so precious. Thanks for making it easy.
