Grace’s brings her passion for photography to the classroom, teaching burgeoning photographers in the Digital Photography program at Niagara College.
Grace received her diploma in Photographic Arts from Sheridan College. After graduation, Grace worked for 20 years in a professional photography studio, and was the first female photographer to be employed as a professional portrait photographer by a general and portrait studio. She has since built a diverse portfolio including opening her own photography studio and gaining extensive experience in commercial work. As a photographer for John Deere International, she travelled for 12 years across North America, shooting machinery on location for their marketing and communications division. She also worked with TD Canada Trust managing a team of event photographers across Canada, the Cayman Islands, Bahamas and Mexico. For 10 years she was involved with the OPP, photographing their events and station commander portraits. Her portfolio also includes food photography with experience shooting for the Rain Forest Café, Planet Hollywood and Hershey Chocolates. In addition, Grace was one of Niagara’s leading ariel photographers and has photographed hundreds of weddings across the Niagara Region and beyond.
Her passion for photography continues to extend beyond the classroom. She is the monthly cover photographer for Homes & Land magazine and is heavily involved in Architecture photography with local architects and builders. Recently, Grace travelled to Vietnam and Thailand to extend her portfolio into street photography. Her photographs from this trip are currently in the process of being published into a book to showcase these two beautiful countries, as seen through her lens.
