I am an expert photographer and fine art printer, who channeled my creativity into photography fourteen years ago. Not just any photography, but travel photography...and what a perfect blend: travel, photography and telling my stories at shows. I work full time at this wonderful "job" although it never feels like a job. When you do what you love it's never work! I've been in this business for 12 years and since there is still a lot of world my husband Michel and I haven't seen, there is lot of work to keep me busy. My aim is to find you scenes that capture the essence of what it feels like to be in the location, not your standard tourist shots.
WHY WE'RE ONE OF A KIND
I generally don't do your standard tourist pictures. You can see those anywhere these days. I also don't want to see the same work year after year, that would just be boring. We are always looking for new travel spots to photograph to give us the ability to continually add new work. What thrills me and feeds my passion is to find scenes that make you feel the essence of the location when you look at them. I adore strong colour, scenes that lead you right into them, I'm not happy until the photos make me feel like the original scene did. My mission is to create fine art, to create pictures that people will want to see on their walls. People tell me my pictures talk to them, and I know it's true because they talk to me too!
I print using Archival Ultrachrome Inks and Archival paper or canvas on my Epson professional 44" printer, which means your picture will last 100 years, and I can print custom sizes up to 44" wide. I varnish each canvas with 2 coats of high quality UV varnish as it is important to me that your canvas is protected.
Nikon D800 camera: Might not seem like a big deal but it all starts with the high quality of a 36 megapixel file.
Photographic Paper: Epson Hot Press Bright or Epson Cold Press Bright
Canvas: Epson Exhibition Satin Canvas or Breathing Color Lyve Canvas
UV Varnish: Breathing Color Timeless UV Varnish, 2 coats on all canvases, big or small
