About me

Location Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Introduction I'm not much of a talker about myself so I think I'm going to use this opportunity to showcase the work of people who I find along my travels, and offer up an assortment of photographs that I consider to be exceptional. My definition of exceptional - a photograph makes one wonder how on earth they did it. I am the daughter of a photographer and the switch from photographer's model to photographer was not only natural but inevitable. "My first love was and will always be people; what they are doing, how they interact at work and play. I also love long shadows, silhouettes, reflections and textures in nature and architecgture. There is just so much for the eye to take in and be bewildered by and so many ways to see things. In my mind, the capture to extraordinary in the every day is my greatest pleasure and challenge. Shooting photo's and sharing them is one way in which we communicate and ask people "do you see what I did?"
