I am fortunate enough to be living my dream. A career in fine art photography allows me to listen and be heard at the same time. I ‘listen’ to the subjects I photograph and then I feel like it allows me to convey something and be ‘heard’ by the viewer.
Growing up in Canada I never thought a career as a fine art photographer would be possible. My first career was in Criminology. That turned out to be rather stressful – to say the least, and not particularly fulfilling in the long run. I moved to California in 1999. That was the turning point for me. I decided that it was time to take my hobby and turn it into a career. I’m so glad I did, I’ve never looked back. Cheers, Monica
