“To photograph is to hold one’s breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It’s at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.” Henri Cartier-Bresson
Thank you for your interest in my photography. I am trained in the fine arts first most as a painter and teacher. As a self taught photographer I used the camera as a tool to create collages to paint that were large, colourful, and surreal. I have worked in advertising and graphic design; I play the cello and love to cook. A fine art background along with an eye for detail and design helps bring a unique vision to my photographs.
I have a studio located in my hilltop home. My neighbours are water, sky, distant islands, trees and goats.
I like people, design, the environment, nature and us in it. I love what I do and take my roll as a photographer seriously. Whether photographing people at a wedding, a special gathering or business I look to capture expressions that are most true. A rapport must develop quickly and we rely on each others trust. I watch for the nuances in relationships; expressions that often appear quickly and are gone. I look for the light, the detail and surprise. These are your memories, your passions your work and we have fun together making them.
Wedding packages start at $1200. A full day starts at $3000. Assignments are taken on Galiano Island, Mayne Island, Pender Island, Saturna Island, Victoria, Vancouver Island, Salt Spring Island, Vancouver or anywhere you want me to be. I look forward to hearing from you. Find me on Facebook, Instagram, or Pinterest. And, have a look at my Smugmug site, where private galleries are posted.
All the best, Nancy Angermeyer
