Joanne Lane is an Australian freelance photojournalist based in Brisbane.

A love of writing from an early age led her to complete a university journalism degree in 1996 with the idea of pursuing sports journalism, but she soon found the constraints of the newsroom too much.

The travel bug soon hit and Jo has now traveled to some 40 countries and lived in a few as well, writing and documenting her experiences for newspapers, magazines and online sources around the world.
