I began shooting professionally for a small book publisher in 2007... it was mostly pictures of plants and gardening supplies, but it was a real, paid and published photography gig, so it counts. I gathered images, worked with authors, and helped in any way that I could to take a manuscript and turn it into a book.
Having spent the last few years focused primarily on portraiture, I've come to love creating images that reflect the moments in between poses... actual laughter and occasional tears. It's nice. It's human. It's who we really are when the fake smile fades.
In 2009 I started working with Rob Davidson, a teacher and pillar of the photography community in Toronto. He's one of the most technically skilled photographers I've ever met. As I developed into a portrait artist, I've come to fully understand how genuinely gifted he is as a product photographer. I am extraordinarily happy to offer his services to my own clients through House of Bonas.
