Hi and thanks for taking an interest in my portraiture work!
My name is Amy and I've chose a career as a freelance photographer. I grew up in Victoria BC and spent a lot of my winters and summers in Whistler. After high school, I moved back and forth between the two towns - Victoria so I could complete my child development psychology degree and Whistler so I could have the best outdoor playground!
In my early 20s, I explored photography as a hobby before beginning to assist a local professional. I realised I wanted to learn a lot more about this craft and industry, so I packed up and moved to Melbourne Australia. I received a photography degree from RMIT University in 2011, then stayed in Melbourne for another 3.5 years in order to work in the industry.
At the end of 2015, I moved back to Whistler where I worked on my photography and unexpectedly got into work at the Whistler animal shelter. At the beginning of 2018, my partner and I decided to make a change and move to Vancouver Island to start our future dreams of owning our own farm. I am readily available for jobs in Victoria, across Vancouver Island, Vanouver, and the Sea-to-Sky corridor. I am willing to travel worldwide for my photography.
Getting to know my photography:
want to keep everything quite natural and organic - no over posing
prefer to use predominately natural light sources
love to work outdoors
want you to have fun and gain a memory you can hold onto for years to come!
"I want to provide [my clients] with memories that they can hold onto for years: a face or a place that takes them back. Back to wherever they want to go. Perhaps to a time they had forgot about. Perhaps to a place that is yet to be discovered. I just hope my viewers feel something and go to another place in their minds when they look at my photos. I hope I can provide you with a piece/memory/snippet to cherish and look back on fondly." (taken from blog post)
Getting to know me:
I've travelled to 30 countries (and don't think that's nearly enough)
my dogs are my bosses
as of 2019, I will also own my own organic farm business
I love handwritten notes and letters
** I also photograph fashion and adventure lifestyle. If you are interested in this part of my work, please visit www.amylobb.com . Photographic prints will soon be available for purchase on this site.
