I don’t know about you, but this winter has lasted too long. From the ice storm in Toronto, to plummeting temperatures of minus 30 degrees (uh polar vortex…what is that?), it is about time we had an excuse to wear bright colours and less layers.
The weather is finally above zero degrees. The snow is finally melting. Buds are beginning to bloom. Bugs and insects are invading your houses. There is mud and dirt everywhere. No more bulky winter jackets (hopefully – please Mother Nature). Children can go outside and play in their playgrounds. There are more people out walking and biking. House owners are doing yard work and collecting fallen branches (probably all from the ice storm – what the heck). When it’s not raining (which is something that isn’t happening today), the sun is shining and the sky is blue.
Hello everyone. My name is Meaghan DeClerq and I am a freelance photographer. When I held my first camera I had an epiphany – I knew that photography would become a larger part of my life.
I graduated in 2013 from the Media Studies program, emphasizing in Image Arts, at the University of Guelph-Humber. Although I am not as talented as the other contributors when it comes to writing, I hope I can showcase my love of photography.
Those who know me know how much I adore food photography. No matter what food is on the table, I have to photograph it. It is important to note that when I say photograph, I mean moving plates around until I got the right lighting – leading to many cold dinners and angry family members.
Outside of my passion for food, I enjoy many styles of photography, particularly portraiture and commercial. Regardless of the style, what I love most is the creative freedom. Whether it’s being your own food stylist, picking a wardrobe or location, photography lets your work shine. I hope you view my work as what it is meant to be – creative freedom. Allowing the colours and textures to take you somewhere special and different from everyday imagery.
