This journey started way before I bought my Canon Rebel T3. I’ve always liked keeping memories of some of the best moments of my life. Pictures, videos, a written memo, etc. Anything that can make me remember a period of my life that I shared with loved ones and brought me joy.
In high school, I used to buy a disposable camera and shoot random moments. My friends would find me annoying, but always laughed looking back at the pictures once I would have them developed. Eventually, they were all looking forward to me bringing the pictures I took and ask me for a copy.
I was then introduced to videography. I studied communications at Vanier College and my favorite class was my video class. Creating a scenario, filming, editing and making it come to life was always a fun experience. Another one of my classes was a photography class. At the time, the era of the DSLR hadn’t arrived yet. We were shooting with some good old Pentax, a roll of films and developing our pictures in a dark room.
When smartphones era took over the world, I used my phone to capture every possible moment. I think I had an album of over 100 pictures for each of my nieces and nephews and my Godson, funny pictures of gatherings with family or/and friends Literally, any moments I could.
Fast forward to 2016, I purchased my first DSLR and went back to snapping moments. The first time I used it was for a friend’s birthday. Then I did a photoshoot with a good friend of mine, a few family events and I never looked back. I was back to creating memories.
I want to create memories of the best moments of your life. I want you to enjoy looking back at those moments that brought you joy just as much as I did back in high school.
