ERIN MCGRATH PHOTOGRAPHER – LAUNCESTON TAS
How did you get started as a photographer?
I have always wanted to become a photographer, but had some different careers along the way before I took the leap to become a professional photographer. I completed a Diploma of Screen and Film at Swinburne University, graduating in 2021 with an industry award and now I am working on building my business.
What did life look like before photography?
For the last 15 years I have been primarily being Mum to three gorgeous kids. Before that I was an Air Traffic Controller in the Air Force – it feels like a lifetime ago!

Tell us something we don’t know about professional photography …
There is a lot more computer work than you might imagine – a half hour shoot = hours at the computer!
If you weren’t a photographer, what would you be doing?
I honestly don’t know, I feel like this is my calling and now can’t imagine what else I would pursue.
Here’s a blank cheque! What are you going to spend it on for your business?
A studio – with all the trimmings!
If you could photograph someone famous, who would it be and why?
Clementine Ford – She is gorgeous, would be up for a fun shoot and I would just adore what we could chat about for while I am photographing her!
