The Photographer

 

 

 

I see a lot of the ugly side of the world at my day job in an animal shelter. A few years ago, I began actively seeking beauty wherever I could find it and creating it where I couldn't find it. My passion for nature photography has really saved my sanity and helped me find balance in my life. Fortunately, I live in Canada, so inspiration is never very hard to find and my partner and I spend as much time as possible traveling around the country, camping with our 2 chihuahuas.

Naturally, I began pointing the camera at the animals in my life and the other piece of the puzzle fell into place for me. Pet photography allows me to celebrate the human animal bond at its best and reminds me that the vast majority of pet owners are devoted to their furry friends. My 20+ years of experience as a Veterinary Technician makes me uniquely qualified to work with animals who may be shy or fearful and their families are frequently delighted by the beautiful pet portraits I am able to create with a little patience and understanding of animal behaviour. 

I am so proud to announce my first accreditation in Pictorial/Scenic photography and acceptance for full membership with the Professional Photographers of Canada. Accreditation is the first elevation above the general membership level, and is achieved by submitting samples of the applicant’s photography to a PPOC Board of Review for Accreditation. Accreditation demonstrates that the photographer is capable of delivering above average quality photography in a chosen category. In assessing Accreditation Submissions, the judges will consider the following criteria: Impact, Creativity, Style, Composition, Presentation, Color Balance, Centre of Interest, Lighting, Subject Matter, Image file quality, Technique and Story Telling.
