I am an 18 year old photography student at Dawson College in Montreal. I have to admit I have a lot of difficulties talking about myself because I am very young and don’t think I know my self super well yet. People say that I […]
When I was asked to write a paragraph about what I love, and why I do photography, the first thing that came to my mind was “what am I going to write?” In the end, it comes down to some pretty basic things. Traveling was always a big part of my life. I may have not traveled to as many places as others, but I try to travel to new destinations whenever I can. Hanging out at the beach (unless shooting photographs) was never a big thing for me – I prefer to go explore different cities or find new areas of nature that I have never seen before.
For me there is a huge connection between visiting new places, and capturing those moments from my perspective. I can enjoy feelings that I had in that specific moment every time I look at each photograph, and I also want to show other people the beauty of those places. I want to capture the moments in a way that makes people want to travel, spend time outside, and to be thankful for what we are able to do. In my opinion, this is what makes this hobby so fulfilling.
Starting with photography, I was basically only doing it for myself, for my family, and for a few friends. Photography has become so much more meaningful to me now. The people I meet, the friends I’ve made, and the great times that I have spent, makes me feel truly grateful. I hope that my journey with photography doesn’t stop soon.
My inspiration comes from every little detail that sometimes goes unnoticed. From a plant that dies from a lack of care, to a sunset with a beautiful golden hue that many take for granted. Nature, the beauty of people, music and even emotions that are […]
I view photography as a highly subjective art form. The inspiration for my work usually comes from everyday life and the need to create art or beauty in my images. Shooting in film has been one of my joys and teachers of the art, as I tend to observe a situation different in film as opposed to digital. Plus with the cost of developing, every shot counts. Film portraits from other photographers tends to inspire me more than digital; the atmosphere, the colours and the mood film creates can be exhilarating. Concept photography is a medium I want to dwell on more as well and shoot more unique concepts, along side shooting more editorial fashion work. I’ve only been shooting for three years now, taking it seriously in the last year, so in my eyes I still have a lot to learn and experience as I walk the path of a photographer.
Photography for me is the art of improving what we see in real time and make it look even better to our eyes. I’ve been influenced by numerous photographers, especially in landscape and cityscape photography. The French photographer Serge Ramelli is someone I admire. He […]
