My name is Caleb Loeken; I am a photographer, designer and content creator currently working in Brisbane, Australia. When I’m not working I love playing the guitar, road tripping around Australia, taking photos of my travels, and going to the beach. I have graduated Queensland University of Technology with a Bachelor of Creative Industries, where I studied Interactive Visual Design and Marketing.
I started my creative career as a music photographer working with musicians and artists at different festivals and events. Through taking photos in the music industry I have had the privilege to work with many national and international artists including Boyce Avenue, Lindsey Stirling and New Empire and photograph at many events and festivals including IGA Lord Mayor’s Carols in the City and Easterfest.
After leaving the music industry, I began photographing many non-music events including corporate galas, car rallies and sporting events. This work has enabled me to work with multiple corporate entities, not-for-profits, churches and small businesses. In this time, I have also begun working with marketing departments to create a myriad of marketing materials in the form of photos and videos, and this has allowed me to travel as far as Sydney for my work.
My photos have been published in several magazines and websites including Bmag, Toowoomba’s The Chronicle, ABC Online & Brisbane Times. I was also a semi-finalist in the 2014 Macquarie Photography Prize & one of twelve winners of the Courier Mail’s 2015 Weather Calendar Competition.
As well as a photographer, I am also a designer and content creator. With my creative degree, primarily in UX and UI design, I began designing websites while still studying. This quickly expanded to working with small advertising agencies as a junior graphic designer, and my portfolio quickly expanded to include brochures, 200+ page catalogues, online stores, domain registration/management, SEO strategies, advertising campaign management, corporate stationery design, and much, much more. While I subcontract to advertising agencies, my passion is still working with my own clients. With skills in marketing, this enabled me work with smaller businesses that don’t have marketing skills themselves, in order to create the best content for their situation.
I would love to meet you, and working with you and your business. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me 🙂
