Joel Gould - Journalist

Joel is a journalist with 20 years of experience and since February, 2011 he has been the late reporter at The Queensland Times. Joel specialises in longer features and as the late reporter he chases all the breaking stories that unfold in the evenings. A die hard rugby league fan, Joel has been pushing hard for the Western Corridor bid to be admitted into the NRL.

Andrew Korner - Journalist

Andrew was born and bred in Ipswich and has been at the QT since 2007. After starting out on the country rounds, he moved onto court reporting and then police and emergency services, which he has now been covering for the last three years. When he is not working on police rounds Andrew is busy sifting through the garbage of famous people, in search of ideas for his weekly column, the Naughty Korner. As there are very few famous people in Ipswich, Andrew is often forced to write his column about boring people, like politicians.


Rob Williams - Chief Photographer

Rob has been shooting images and video at the QT since 2007. Rob is a cricket tragic who’s dream as a kid was to wear the ‘Baggy Green’. Rob’s all time favourite band is Fleetwood Mac. “Their music is amazing, emoting such love and hate, enormous talent and a bit of craziness thrown in, just like me”.

David Nielsen - Photographer

David Nielsen has been a photographer at The Queensland Times since 2010. After learning his craft at The Queensland College of Art, he started his career at The Northern Star in Lismore, NSW. David grew up on the Darling Downs and travelled extensively before realising his dream and becoming a newspaper photographer. He has a friendly disposition and enjoys shooting a wide range of subjects. David’s photographs have been described as ‘incredible’ and ‘breathtaking’ by friends and family on Facebook.
