About • Canmore Freelance Photographer

I'm Camille. If you're here, you probably already know that I'm a photographer (mostly).

I can tell you that I'm a graphic designer, yogi, amateur climber, outdoorswoman, the eldest of three siblings, left-handed, and 5 ft. tall. I can also tell you that I was born in The Philippines, moving to Auckland, New Zealand at the age of 6 and then to Brisbane, Australia at the age of 10. I now live in Canmore, Canada, with my partner, Martin. I picked up a camera when I was 13 and I've never really put it down since.

Now that we've gotten the what, where and how out of the way, here's what else I can tell you: I love capturing tiny details; finding beauty in simple, everyday things; meeting like-minded people; quality over quantity; and being part of a generation that can inspire change. I believe in living intentionally, making conscious choices about the kind of life I want to live and working hard to make sure my day-to-day aligns with that vision.

It's taken me some time to understand what kind of photographer I am. I've never been able to define myself as being one kind of photographer, because I love to capture more than one kind of thing. Wherever I go, my camera comes with me, and photography is my art form. All I know is that I've always loved telling stories, even as a 2-year-old who didn't make much sense. That love of storytelling has always been the common theme in my photography, and now I know—for lack of any better term, I am a documentary photographer; a visual storyteller. I want you to feel as if you were in that moment with me, and if I've done that, then I guess I'm doing this right.

This blog is an ongoing documentary of sorts, and serves as a space for my creative and emotional expression—however raw, however vulnerable. You can follow along here or on my social channels below to stay up-to-date with my latest life, travel and portraiture stories.
