About Joanne Piechota

Saving for my first camera at 8 years old, I have been shooting ever since I traded my pocket money for a red 35mm Hanimex and loaded it with a roll of film.

Post graduation from the International College of Professional Photography in Melbourne, I’ve lived and photographed in China, Japan, and the USA where I continued my studies at the International Centre of Photography in New York City.

I love old school style film photography and I still often work as if I am shooting film. I use little to no Photoshop in the post production of my photographs; all of the work is done whilst capturing the image.

My work is about finding the hidden beauty, taking every day and capturing it from a different point of view. I feel that too often we are caught up in our day-to-day lives and sometimes forget to enjoy the beauty that surrounds us.
