Hi, my name is Tiffany. I’m 29 years old. I take pictures of people and I draw them, too. Growing up, I drew pictures everywhere I could. On the backs of advertisement flyers that came in the mail, on my legs, until eventually someone would give me a piece of actual paper. I introduced myself to new people by drawing their portraits, and avoided getting beat up in High School by finishing the bullies’ art projects for them.
As I got older, I fell in love with photography after going through a phase where I hated getting my picture taken. In frustration, my father handed me his camera and told me I would take the family pictures from now on.
Not much has changed, except, I don’t mind being photographed anymore — though I much prefer to be on the opposite end of the lens. I have a bit of a social phobia, so I can come off as incredibly anxious and shy, but I love meeting new people and seeing new places. As an adult, my photographs and artwork have won several awards and have been seen in publications all over Canada and the United States.
My other interests are uncomplicated. I love music; I’ve been the Worship Leader of my church for four years. I also enjoy baking, knitting and pugs. Not necessarily in that order :).
My immediate family lives in Calgary, so I’m there often… but you can also find me in the East Bay Area or the Greater Vancouver Area. Or sleeping in a pile of coats after a birthday party. If you would like to hire me for a project, please contact me for details. My rates are very reasonable. You can find out what I’m up to/where I am on my blog.
