Where I Come From – July 2014

This is where I come from, yes, and what a place it is. It is funny. When I am home, I am, for the most part, very unrelaxed.  I am cleaning, sorting and driving around visiting many friends and my very large family. It is here in Munich, weeks after, that I see how lucky I am. It is really only when I collect these images together for my post, that I feel so grateful of where I come from. It has been a few years since I had time there in the middle of the Summer and what a place it is. Our welcome sign does not lie when it states  ” ONTARIO, Yours to Discover .”  I lived there the first 22 years of my life and still have so many things to see and explore.

Below, you will find this years adventures. The first images are in Niagara Falls on our nations Canada Day. A few shots are in the harbour in the small town of Port Colbourne, a cute and cozy place that my brother currently calls home. Following this are shots of Canada’s most southern tip, Point Pelee National Park. It was an amazing day trip I have not made since I was a kid.  The next photos are of the place I call home, rural Chatham Kent and its farmland, fields and open spaces. We also hit the big city of Toronto for a few days of exploring, beer tasting and a Jays game. The rest of the images were taken  on a four day canoe trip in Algonquin Provincial Park. A place that I never been to before but will return to many times in the future. Huge and natural, it was the perfect end to our visit in Ontario. Until next time!

My approach to photography is simple and pure. I use only natural light to create an image; and work hard to develop an artistic photo, whether it be for a client or as a self project. I do not care about staging shots, excessive make up, and set ups. I capture what is there, with love for that special moment. With an advanced diploma in photography from Canada, I choose to follow my dream to work as a freelance photographer. With over 10 years in experience, I can capture your special moments, smiling faces, products or food in a simplistic, colourful and uncomplicated way. I photograph with my heart and believe in sustainability, conscious consumption and responsibility. When you book a photography session, purchase an image, or participate in a workshop or retreat, you are supporting social organizations and projects. I run my small business on green electricity, all print material is climate-neutral and supports other charitable projects for people and the environment. This is a very important concept for me to follow. Every daily decision and choice we make, has the potential to create a cleaner and happier community and world. If you are interested in purchasing fine art photographs or my cookbook, hoping to have images taken or just want to connect, I am happy to make a new friend.
