My name is Dana and I am absolutely in love with what I do!
I shoot with a compassionate eye and fearlessness that allows me to see the light and beauty in everyone I photograph. I don’t care what you do or where you’re from, just as long as you want to document something honest and real.
I took a few turns before starting my photography business. I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in History from the University of British Columbia. I lifeguarded my way through college and taught hundreds of people how to swim. I managed a tea store, worked as a Textile Artist in the fashion industry and displayed my artwork in galleries.
When I’m not taking pictures I live a quiet life at home in Vancouver with my partner/best friend Ben. I seek out inspiration from everyday occurrences: a fresh cup of coffee, a new lunch spot with friends, snuggles with my nephew, or watching an old film will take me to my happy place.
I approach photography as I approach life: less is always more, quality will always trump quantity, and I will never need perfection to capture you perfectly.
If any of this resonates with you I am so happy you found me and I’d love to take your picture.
