I have been interested in photography since receiving my first camera, a Polaroid Impulse, for my 8th Birthday. I became more serious about the practice around 10 years ago, and received a BFA from Concordia with a focus in photography, painting, and drawing in 2009. It fascinates me that every photograph has the ability to freeze a moment in time, and that as a photographer I have the creative power to curate the way it's captured. Shooting for others, regardless of the context, is always an exciting and motivating challenge. My love of natural light, depth of field, and vibrant colours is evident in my portfolio, adding character and life to every shoot.
I currently reside in Gatineau, Quebec, and am happy to travel anywhere in the Gatineau/ Ottawa region that is accessible by public transportation, or further out if a ride is provided. I am currently in the process of attaining my license, and will be able to travel outside the city limits by June 2017 independently. I am also available to shoot in Montreal, Kingston, and Toronto so long as travel fair is added. If you are looking to get headshot work done, I can also shoot from my home.
I currently shoot with a Nikon D5500. I mainly shoot with a 50mm f/1.8 lens, and a 35-55mm f/4.0 lens. I plan to acquire an 85mm f/1.4 lens, and a 105mm f/2.8mm in the near future. I also have a digital two flash head kit from Elinchrom for portrait lighting that is transportable.
This is dependent on the type of shoot I have done for you. For wedding, event, and family shoots, a small preview set of photos will be available within the first week or two, and the full set of edited, hi-res images will be available 4-7 weeks after the event was shot.
For business or editorial shoots it will vary from contract to contract depending on the time sensitivity of when the photos are required.
I use Pixieset to create a private album that only you, and people of your choosing, can access. You can share or download the entire album, as well as order prints from there.
I edit photos to be clean and corrected. My editing includes colour balancing, as well as any correcting with exposure and levels that may be needed. I will also remove small blemishes/ imperfections/ noise caught on fabrics (such as lint and stray hairs). I will always come to a shoot equipped with a lint roller too, though, just in case.
If there are any special editing requests you may have, please let me know.
Once we have the specifics of the contract finalized, I request a deposit of 50% of the total price. This can be done through e-transfer, a cheque, or cash.
Taxes are included in the price.
Feel free to contact me for further details!
