My happy place...

Creating imagery for marketing regional businesses makes my heart sing!

 
 

Knowledge & Rebellion

for the betterment of all, abounds in the Outback

 

Wide open spaces

Does your heart sing when you are in wide open spaces?

Hi, I’m Louise Gronold

 

 

…of flourish resources & co.

I’m a multi-micro-business wrangler and connector of ideas, businesses and people.

I’m a gap-filler, a problem-solver & a challenge taker. And I’m also a mum, a cake lover, a photography & camera nerd.

As of now, after professional photography, I am concentrating on helping others to flourish too.    There will still be photography and videography for businesses and communities.  As I want to by help people, businesses and communities in the outback thrive through imagery, marketing and connections. For more details and to be part of exciting opportunities, see Eureka Outback.

Having only recently discovered (May 2020) that I am a full blown multipotentialite (or scanner as Barbar Sher calls them…us?), I am embracing my intense curiosity and unignorable urge to help solve people’s problems with my verve for regional development.  More specifically, helping those who have a similar desire to have a positive impact on our regional communities with our ideas, passions, businesses & networks.

Until recently, I saw my multipotentiality as a curse.  Current society does not value someone whose resume appears fickle and uncommitted. Meanwhile, I have learnt, experienced, trained, met diverse people & solved problems in a variety of fields.  Now, I am fully embracing it in a way I can be of most help to other regional small businesses & communities.

I officially began my professional photography journey in 2010 when I joined the AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photography). However, I had been providing professional photography services since 2006.  Since then I’ve surpassed my own expectations of who and how I can help: couples, families, businesses, event organizers and our outback Queensland communities. I love being able to help them proudly stand out and tell their story.

Do share or get in touch if you also feel the same way. I want to make sure my kids and others don’t (unintentionally) suffer the same lack of self-appreciation I did. xx

Say hello
