Searching for Inspiration

For a solid year I had this grand plan to move from Toronto to Vancouver. I thought a change of scenery would solve all my problems (feelings of stagnation in my business and a lack of inspiration in my personal work). The bottom line is I thought moving would make me happy. I’ve since realized that happiness is not necessarily tied to a particular place or to things. Happiness really does come from within, as cliche as it may sound. There is no running away from your problems, as I’m sure you know. Travelling to new places certainly helps with the feelings of boredom and stagnation, …

Day 2 – New Photo Series

I need to get something off my chest. This was awful. AWFUL! I’m still queazy. I never ever EVER want to be this close to a cow heart, or any kind of raw heart for that matter, EVER again.

I managed to balance them in place on my head for a few shots but it defeats the purpose of having hands free antlers if I can’t be mobile enough to show any other emotion …

Creating Light – Creative Portraiture

I’m lucky enough to have some down time for the next few months (woohoo!) which allows me the luxury of revisiting past work and trying new ways of post processing. I’ll be sharing my techniques here in an effort to be more creatively active this year. Hey that kinda rhymed! Okay focus… So when I created the above images I didn’t intend to make a blog post, thus, I did not save my work accordingly. I will however recreate the same technique, just in a different pattern to make it more interesting for me. Or perhaps in a different color. I haven’t …

My Hipstamatic World

Even though I’m a professional photographer with access to all the professional gear a girl could want I still like using my dinky little iPhone to capture the everyday things. I guess it’s because I don’t have to think about it too much.
