We’re back in the studio after a much deserved holiday break.  Here’s Eloise in our recent summer fun shoot.  I’m pretty happy to be starting the new year diving right back into the summer action – especially after the Canadian deep freeze!  It’s great to be back.

Ice Storm

Happy New Years everybody!  It’s been so wonderful spending a white Christmas with my family, and catching up with old friends in Canada.  The good food and restful days were exactly what I’ve needed after the big rush leading up to Christmas.

This year Toronto was hit with a big ice storm just a few days before Christmas.  It was a huge blow to the city as hundreds of thousands of residents were left with no power for days.  With temperatures plummeting to -20C, no power resulting in no heat became a serious problem across the Greater Toronto Area.  But our family was incredibly fortunate to escape the power outages.  We spent Christmas Day hunkered down in the warm comfort of home.

After piling on layer after layer of clothing, I did venture outside to grab a few photos of the beautiful, yet amazingly destructive ice storm of 2013.

About Connie

I was that geeky camera chick who spent her high school lunch breaks in the darkroom.  I still miss the smell of those stinky developer chemicals.  Sort of.

Born in Canada, I graduated with top honours in Applied Photography at Sheridan College before spending several years assisting and producing for  some of the best commercial shooters in Toronto.  After gathering a wealth of valuable skills and getting my first DSLR, I bought a plane ticket to Asia.

It was my first backpacking adventure, but I managed to survive nine months from Seoul to Singapore with only some shoddy mandarin and a lot of luck.  I had the time of my life. So I did it again.  Seven months of zig-zagging around India and Nepal taught me ingenuity with limited resources, clarity when surrounded in chaos, and how to eat with just my right hand.

Sydney became my new home in 2008, and I’ve been enjoying the sunny weather and great coffee ever since.

Today, I’m a fashion and product photographer extraordinaire.  Based at Studio 8 in the northern beaches of Sydney, I relish the challenge and precision of studio lighting.  My clients are drawn to my clean, stripped back approach to every project.  My simplistic yet direct style is refreshing and elegant in a market full of heavily Photoshopped images.

When I’m not in the studio you can find me hand folding dumplings or scaling walls at the rock climbing gym.  I’m also really good at winning board games (or my friends are just really good at losing).
