what matters most

Our Mission Statement

Photography is not just our job, it is our purpose. We create a personalized, inclusive and empowering experience for everyone we collaborate with. We are committed to our collective unlearning while creating and upholding a queer-friendly, anti-racist, safe and uplifting space for all humans. We respect all faiths and recognize all identities. We proudly share credit & opportunity with our fellow collaborators. Through impactful imagery we cultivate self-love, self-expression and self-worth. We make every person and place feel seen and valued through our lens.

We acknowledge the land upon which we create, grow and thrive is the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. We also acknowledge that Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 with the Mississaugas of the Credit.

We acknowledge the land upon which we create

The responsibility and work of truth and reconciliation is shared by all colonizers. We are committed to doing our part.
