Hey Creative and Chaos readers! I haven’t posted a lot of photography in a while so I thought I’d share some shots from a shoot earlier this week! I always find that dark portraits allow for discourse on reflecting on your own experiences so these pieces really made me think about my own state.
I was lucky enough to represent the University of Ontario Institute of Technology last month at the Converge 2017 conference presented by Universities Ontario.
