Mentoring |Edmonton Pet Photographer|

In 2014 I graduated from NAIT’s ( Northern Alberta Institute of Technology) Photographic Technology Diploma Program. Part of that program is to do 121 hours of work experience with another photographer in the area. 

At this time I was unsure about what genre of photography I wanted to commit to. Not one of my mentors were pet photographers. That was okay though, I learnt other things from them. 

Lindsay Hood Photography - Connection with your clients is key! She was crazy good at this!

Donna Lynn Photography - Be yourself! No matter what the fuck they think!

Lovallo Art Photography - You can see beauty in ordinary things! She was amazing at this! 

Okay, now fast forward to this passed week… I have my own work experience student from NAIT! How amazing is that. Brittania is in her second year in her program. I am incredibly honoured to have my own work experience student! I am love passing my knowledge to others and I know it is cheesy to say but I am a firm believer of community over competition. 

Sam graciously offered his modelling services for Brittania and I. Brittania also captured some BTS for me. How amazing is she?! Check out the video at the bottom put together from our session with Sam.

Eevee |Edmonton Dog Photographer|

How adorable is Eevee!?

Eevee was a prefect lady during our in studio session. It’s been awhile since I have shot in studio and she helped me brush off the cobwebs and create something beautiful <3

Gen’s Kind words

To simple put it, Cassie is amazing. I have always wanted some nice/professional photographs of my dog but was always nervous because my dog Eevee is extremely shy with people and has high anxiety. I have hired Cassie twice now and I will never go with anyone else! She is seriously a dog whisperer; Eevee was so calm and comfortable with Cassie from the get go. (I almost couldn’t believe it) Cassie is so calm and sweet towards animals and they can sense that she truly cares about them. On top of all this, Cassie was so helpful in helping me prep for the shoot; reminding me of little tips to help make the day of the session go a lot smoother. Cassie brings professionalism and experience to her shoots and makes the entire experience amazing! Highly recommend!

I love that Noella is always willing to try new things with me! Last week we went out and tried out an old film camera that my uncle gave me. Together we went to downtown edmonton to find some cool locations. Hopefully I can start a new series with film and dogs.

Look at these beautiful Fossil Watches!  

Lately I have been working on some commercial jewelry shots - I mean dog owners buy jewelry also. I would love to start working on some advertising products WITH dogs. 

The next images are beaded jewelry from around the world. Some of the pieces are from London, Paris, Poland, Amsterdam and Iceland.
