Taken by Jason de Plater

I'm Camille. I'm a freelance portrait, lifestyle & travel photographer based in Canada, originally from Brisbane, Australia (and before that, New Zealand & The Philippines).

I've been taking photos since I was a teenager. At the time, I never really thought I could make it what I did for a living. What started out as doing photoshoots (sometimes paid, sometimes not) outside of my full-time graphic design job turned into me realising that I had (wrongfully) assumed that I wasn't good enough for the thing that I loved the most. In July 2016, I put a pause on my graphic design career to give my photography the chance it deserves. I now live in Canada with my partner Martin, where I'll have more than enough to fall in love with and capture.

I am completely self-taught, and now I also teach others, previously running regular photography workshops at Workshop Brisbane. Outside of being a young creative, I am also a certified yoga teacher, dog lover, and coffee enthusiast with a constant craving to explore the world around me.

I have also always had a love of reading and writing. Aside from being a place to share stories outside of my professional work, this blog also satisfies my need to write. It is a visual, ongoing documentary of sorts, and serves as a space for my creative and emotional expression—however raw, however vulnerable. Its existence is mostly for me, but it's nice that you're spending some time with it (and me) too.
