Remix Photography // Featured Artists

It is an absolute honor to be teaching photography at The Remix Project again! Introducing Remix 11.0 http://theremixproject.ca/site/about/ When I began teaching photography I wanted to not only share my love of the art but take the mystery out of the technical aspect which can be very intimidating. Teaching your profession requires a lot of thought about how you do what you do.  I can tell you from my experience that it has made me a better communicator, and a better photographer.

It’s time to the rising stars.

Photography is an art, and art needs passion. With passion, there’s learning.

What do you hope to achieve in the next few months with REMIX?

I want to produce emotional and professional fashion photography in studio. I want to be completely comfortable with all aspects of the studio environment. I want to know my camera, it’s functions and the best combinations of settings for any predicament I may encounter as a photographer.

Why do you love photography?

I see photography as being the preservation of beauty, emotion, and priceless moments that no one can re-create. Life changes so quickly, but with photography I can capture someone or something in their prime or peak of beauty and that photo will never change it will forever be a clear memory because you have something concrete to look at. Photography keeps memories alive; preserves beauty, captures true emotions and can stand the test of time. That’s why I love photography.

What do you hope to achieve in the next few months with REMIX?

In these few months with Remix I hope to achieve a better understanding of the technical side to photography. There are so many ideas I want to explore and I don't want to be limited because I'm not knowledgeable about all the things I'm able to do with my camera. Hopefully with this knowledge I will feel more confident to walk into any situation as a photographer and be able to deliver.

Why do you love photography?

I love photography because there's a moment in every picture that I capture that I believe gives off an emotion that I can relate to. For me, it's the one place I feel free to express myself in ways that I probably cannot with words. I love the fact that with photography we are able to play around with our own perception of something and bring it to life. How I may view a situation, another photographer may translate it completely different and its interesting to see that.

What do you hope to achieve in the next few months with REMIX?

What I hope to achieve in the next few Months at Remix is a strong portfolio and a website for post-secondary. I also want to build a strong network of people and be known for my brand in the city through my work.

Why do you love photography?

I love photography because it's a way I can express my self and show others my Lifestyle and What I'm all about. I was one of those kids that enjoyed every splendid moment, from walking in the city's downtown core to going on long road trips up north. I started recording all those scenes in my life since a year and a half ago when I discovered Photography in high school. Photography expresses my lifestyle and free's me from what I have been through and whats around me. Photography Is like my alter-ego, it allows me to express and show my viewers visually what I see and go through day by day. I never left this City before so Photography allows me to push myself to see other scenarios, people and their lifestyle and I hope one day I can travel the world knowing my Photography is loved by others because it expresses who I am and what I represent.

What do you hope to achieve in the next few months with REMIX?

What I hope to achieve during my time at the Remix project, is really get a grasp on how to run my business and get the right tools in my photography to take my work to the next level. I believe with this class and the amazing people in the program, I have and will continue to learn and build.

Why do you love photography?

Photography is who I am and what represents me. At first I knew it what I wanted to do, but once I got into it, and people started telling me it was great and different, that's when I knew it was my calling. I still feel I haven't done the best at all, but that's what keeps me going with the motivation. I want to always capture the moment

Turning to photography as a means of exploring and understanding the present inequality, Amanda hopes to inspire audiences to become more active in the conversation.

What do you hope to achieve in the next few months with REMIX?

The next few months of REMIX, I hope to refine my abilities of capturing the world how I see it --uncensored. I want to take this experience to understand who I am as an artist and how I can contribute to the world around me, visually. My goal is to strengthen my creative approach to telling stories that are original and profoundly inspiring. I want people to think, to appreciate, react-- I want to invoke reactions.

I also hope to come out with a professional portfolio, in hopes to continue formal education in photojournalism or an internship

Why do you love photography?

I LOVE photography because a picture is known to be worth a thousand words, but i see it as being a thousand words of expressing oneself, an extension of my person (John Locke). Photography is an outlet that allows me to express myself creatively with no inhibitions. Documenting various things that mean something to me like my environment; the people and things within it that I, or someone else may take for granted. A therapeutic release of feelings/emotions that may cause me to react positively and negatively, causing me to think and discover and understand myself. It's like as I release the shutter, I am preserving these memories in a visual time capsule. I always see that a moment is never the same and if one occurs, it may invoke a different reaction, but when I capture any of these moments, although they will never physically return, I can always be reminded with the photo that I felt important to capture as the photo will still remain.

If you’ve been inspired by any of these awesome young talents then share this post with your Twitter followers or Facebook friends!
