PHOTOGRAPHY

I’ve been photographing things– strangers, random quirks on the street, friends, makeup artistry, stray cats, captivating dancers, and blurred celebrations– since I bought my first DSLR in grade 10.

I was my graduating year’s unofficial photographer/videographer because I constantly carried my camera around with me wherever I went. I was so absolutely annoying with the thing that I’d get yelled at on an daily basis by friends and teachers for snapping candids. 

My favourite kind of photography comes from the stuff you think wouldn’t typically make a good picture, or getting a shot of someone when they aren’t fully ready. Even though it may not technically be ‘correct,’ it makes the image so much more genuine and a lot more interesting to look at.

It’s true that everyone looks good when they smile and pose, but being able to capture what someone’s personality is really like, or being able to tell a story through a wonky, twisted aerial-shot from the edge of an Exchange District building, is a hell of a lot more interesting.
