I was given opportunity to find Cooperative placement with a local photographer, and during that experience I composed a beautiful portfolio, which I have added to since.

After my Co-Op experience I gained enough experience to offer my paid services to photograph a highschool Senior Semi-Formal, and I may be photographing the Junior one also. I was also asked by my own school to take their official grad photos. In the midst of all my experiences so far, I have been approached by someone who has a Wedding video service, who wants me as their sole photographer.

---------------------

I take great joy in photographing family, friends, pets and nature, but there are times where I am compelled to try to capture the essence of an abandoned or aging structure. I have loved photography since I was old enough to pick up a camera. I hope someday to pursue this field professionally.

I appreciate any feedback you leave, because that is what will help me grow as a photographer.

Bio

I always had love for photography. I have been taking photos ever since I can remember.
It is my aspiration and one true joy in life. If I could pursue this professionally, someday, I would very much like to.

My equipment of choice right now is the Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera.
I love this camera, but I have not quite mastered all of its nifty features.

I would like you to be aware that for some reason unknown to me, I feel compelled to take pictures of things that are decayed or abandoned. We have so many derelict buildings close by that I wish to take pictures of, but I have not yet found the courage to ask the owners if I can go inside for a closer look, but I am working up to it.

A few projects I am considering are; Yates Castle in Colour, St. Alexander's Church before Restoration, The Abandoned Theater, more Brownfields, Fun in the Sun/Water Play, Pets and Family, Nature and more Landscapes. A personal achievement for me would be if I could visit New Orleans, Louisiana.

Things that interest me besides photography are; writing, reading, video games, computers and technology, fashion, modeling, animals, nature, and spirituality.

I am from the unknown town of Brantford, located in Ontario. I have lived here all of my life, and no one really knows we exist, because you only see us in the news once every 20 years or so. The most attention our town got was when someone leaked on the internet that
"Centralia" was actually Silent Hill, and that they were filming it here!! We had so many tourists then. It was crazy.
They also filmed Weirdsville earlier this year. It was a low budget, dark comedy.

I have one mother, one father (up for debate), five brothers, and one sister. I also have three cats, and three dogs.
One of them my boyfriend and I share.
