My Journey as a Fine Art Photographer

Thirteen years ago I gave up my then-dream-job as a producer and first photography assistant at an advertising photography studio in Toronto, packed my bags, moved to London, and started my journey to become a fine art photographer.

That job taught me the ins and outs of good, clean design. The dreamy way colour creates mood. How soothing a clean, minimal photograph can be.

But the city hadn’t been kind. I was a small town girl looking yearning to lead a simpler, less stressful life that didn’t involve keeping up with the Jones’ or continuing to add things to my already overstuffed schedule.

Then I met Darren.

He’s patient, kind, silly, and relaxed. Plus he had a guitar and a motorcycle. And he knew how to use both.

So with love in my heart I started a wonderful, happy, calmer new chapter of my life.

I started by creating simplistic photographs of winter scenes…

And I photographed flowers with a light, airy glow…

I dabbled in travel photography { and to be honest, I’d love to do more } …

Eventually I found ease and melted away my stress at the beach…

Lately I’ve been fascinated with the calming, meditative effects of abstract photography, plus they’re sooo much fun to make…

Art has such an amazing power to make people see and feel in new ways. When I start my day watching the sunrise while I stand alone on a quiet beach, it’s magical, uplifting, and really healthy for my soul.

And I’d love for you to find that same quiet beauty when you look at my photographs.

    When were you photographing that winter tree? was it on your blog? It looks very familiar. I signed up for your sneak peek list in January of 2013 but I’m sure I was reading your blog before that? 8*)

      Hi Melissa,

      I made Tree in Winter in December 2006. It’s been on my blog a few times, plus it’s been in and out of my shop, so you’ve probably seen it around.
