Beginning her career in professional photography just 8 years ago, Michelle Grace Hunder already has two separate portrait series in the National Sound and Film Archives of Australia and is considered one of the most revered Australian Music Photographers.
After the 2015 release of her highly anticipated photographic book- "RISE", a detailed insight of her personal journey into the world of Australian Hip-Hop, Michelle has also spreads her creativity into a number of different avenues, showing an agile versatility – from fashion, to international cultural events.
Her repertoire continues to grow, with Australian and international artists requesting her talents to photograph both live performances and portrait images, used for press, publicity and album covers.
Michelle has been invited as the official tour photographer for Seth Sentry, Illy and Ruel, and was the Official Festival Photographer for "Come Together" at Sydney's iconic Big Top at Luna Park for 4 consecutive years.
After shooting with literally every major player in the Australian Hip-Hip scene, Michelle has spent the last four years on a major personal project called "Her Sound, Her Story" celebrating Women in Australian Music, across all genres, with her project partner, Claudia Sangiorgi Dalimore.
Michelle & Claudia worked with over 80 women, both artists and behind the scenes in the music industry, across all genres, shooting portraits and interviews for this highly ambitious project. The full length documentary of "Her Sound, Her Story" premiered with huge industry acclaim in May of 2018 and is currently touring the country.
Michelle also hosts a weekly Hip Hop radio show on Kiss Fm with her co-host DJ Rui & renowned Music Journalist Sose Fuamoli, just to add to her already incredibly busy schedule!
