I developed my passion for photography at a young age growing up in Toronto as the family photographer. Later, after graduating from the Creative Photography Program at Humber College, I discovered my passion for Studio Photography, using light and shape to define an object. I refined my skills working for Commercial Photo Studios shooting Catalogue and Retail Photography.
Lighting has always been the key element in crafting an image. Colour, shape and texture define how the light caresses an object to reveal its innate identity. Using large format cameras and sheet film to capture the image was a skill in itself. Then suddenly the word “Digital” arrived and the buzz of Photoshop quickly followed.
I moved to London England and jumped straight into the Digital Photography scene and the steep learning curve that came with it: Apple Macs, Digital Camera backs, Photoshop, Colour Correction, Compositing of Images, Retouching and the really big one – converting to CMYK for print! Fast forward to the present, and Digital Imaging is the standard and allows us to create images we only dreamed about in the film era.
The coolest part of Digital Photography is that you know you’ve got the shot … a whole lot sooner!
