My name is Claire, and I am a happy-go-lucky, adventurous, and a tad daring photographer on a quest for a life-journey.
A little bit about me: I was born and raised in France and moved to Canada some 20 years ago. Traveling is always on my agenda; hence why I do not hesitate to hop on a plane for a photo-assignment. Oh, and yes: I still have an accent!
I studied Professional Photography and graduated from W.A.P. (Western Academy of Photography) in the late 90s, in Victoria, BC. This was during the film age...
My philosophy is quite simple: Photography is a silent art with many feelings in it. My goal is to capture with my heart and imagination what I see before my eyes. Life is short; moments are even shorter, so together, let's freeze the instant!
Some news: This year, 2015, is my last year as a wedding photographer after being in that field for close to 15 years. I have decided to concentrate on shorter photo-stories, such as documentary-style images about children of all age; maternity; newborn; families; pets; couples in love; anniversaries; birthdays; baptisms; bar or bat mitzvah; dog training; dog show (anything dogs!); travel photography; and ...vintage & sport cars! Fun fun! It is a perfect transition.
If you are looking for someone creative to capture your special event, don't be shy: give me a shout!
I can't wait to meet you!
