Jono Paterson is the owner of New Camera House in Lismore .
In the 23 years he has owned the business he’s been through many floods.
Despite moving all the stock and equipment to the specifically built mezzanine level this recent flood exceeded everyone’s expectations and rose 2 meters higher than predicted.

This natural disaster has completely devastated his business costing over $1m to replace stock and rebuild.
Jono is like family to so many of us in Lismore.
He is generous and kind and will always help you out.
He has given me a roof when I needed one, work when I’ve needed it, endless support and encouragement towards my work.

I can’t imagine a Lismore without Jono or the Camera House as well as so many other businesses.
