Unifying individuals throughout Canada and the United States using compassion and a pop-up photo studio.
"What Is Love" will reveal through comparative photography the strength and beauty of vulnerability that can be found within all adults, regardless of age, nationality, income, sexual orientation or gender. 
ANGELA FAMA is an artist I've admired for many years.  I am fascinated by her comparative portrait studies exploring genuine human connection.  I had the opportunity to be a part of Angela's 2013 portrait study 'How Are You' which was exhibited at the Museum of Vancouver last year as part of Capture Photography festival.  Angela's work asks simple questions and reveals true emotion, connecting strangers and building community.

*New* Studio Photography Workshop 'Understanding Body Language' with Katie Huisman starting Sept. 16th!

Understanding Body Language and Directing the Subject
8 Week Studio Photography Workshop
Tuesday Sept 16th 7:00pm, #14 West 7th Ave
Body language is a universal form of non-verbal communication and a fascinating subject to study.  Current trends in lifestyle & editorial photography depict clear emotions that are genuine, simple & contemporary.  Contrived or traditionally posed (portrait studio) images are not what most clients are looking for in today’s fast paced growing society.
This workshop explores body language in relation to photographing people and how to direct the subject into candid emotive poses.   Lighting techniques will also be learned with natural & studio lighting.
