Jaana Brown is a professional photographer based in Goodna, Queensland
Jaana is a photographer and Visual Artist based in Goodna, Ipswich.
Originally from the far North West mining town of Mount Isa Jaana grew up in the red dirt and spinifex, moved around FNQ with her parents enjoying Townsville, Forest Beach, Lucinda and Ingham before eventually settling in South East Queensland. 15 years in banking, a family of her own and a fiery combination of Finnish and Irish genes has led Jaana to look to the future in another direction and fiercely grab at her passion in photography and visual arts and move it from hobby to small business.
Passion drives everything, since inception Photos by Jaana-Liisa has grown quickly from just an idea suggested by a friend to a busy fully fledged small business operating within the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, Gold Coast and Ipswich areas with hope to expand into a studio.
But its not all business and Jaana specialises in candid photography and story telling believing that the ability to paint a picture without needing to say a thing is a skill you need to employ in all photography ?you need to be in the moment, its not just another job, its a privilege to be there?.
Movement and light inspire her as she sees opportunity to capture something beautiful everywhere which is why night photography is Jaana?s favourite form of hobby photography. From the swirling light of highway headlights off an overpass to the unmatched beauty of the milky way far from the city lights, light and movement provide unique ways to look at the world and let others observe it.
Intimate moments inspire beauty, it is through capturing vows, promises and moments of deep meaning that Jaana has come to love photographing peoples experience of these such special events. Capturing the groom as he watches his bride come to him, or Grandmothers face as her grandson is baptised, or a mother as she brings life into the world. Words don?t do the moments justice and Jaana finds these shoots to be of particularly special meaning and very satisfying.
Moments are special outside such intimate occasion too, and Jaana finds the exhilaration of festival photography, the pace of sports and dance photography and the adrenalin rush of fashion photography the ?punch? of variety that adds a step of pace as they arrise in her business.
Deep down though, its not photography alone that drives her, but the ravenous creative spirit inside her and love for human nature in action that brings about the passion in her work, because put simply if you love what you do, you will never work another day in your life, and this, in a statement, encompasses in every fibre of her being, Jaana's experiance of photography.
