Who am I?

As an opera singer, there was always something more I wanted to express. I couldn’t draw for the life of me.  My poetry was terrible.  My sculpting was even more horrific. But…I always loved taking pictures, so I started to take more and more shots.  I guess people saw something in the pictures I shared online.  Before I knew it I was being hired for events, headshots and weddings.

Fast forward 10+ years.

I get to travel all over Canada and the world doing what I love. I specialize in outdoor destination weddings, and my travel photography has been featured by some of the biggest names in the industry. My most mind blowing gig: working with Scarlett Street Creative Agency and Bell Media for the web series Far and Wide on Much.com. My job was to travel across Canada with a badass crew and create photo content for the team as they shot the video series. You can grab a little glimpse of what I did on one of the trips in my post: Chasing the Sunrise.

I hope my photos allow you to forget everything around you for even a split second.  I hope they help tell a story from the moments in time when they were taken. Stories that you conjure up in your imagination.  That’s what makes photos so special. Better than any video.  The photographer shares his or her perspective, and the rest of the story is up to the viewer to create.

My work is dedicated to my father who passed away from cancer in 2008.  Please contact me if ever you need a photographer for any charitable events.  If I am available, I will volunteer my services for your cause.

A big shout out to the incredible Rachel DC, the model who took the picture above while I was getting a picture of her. You can see the picture I took of her here.

A big thanks to Tim Chin for these incredible shots below. Taken on the wonderful camera of Sebastien d’Amour.

Sincerely,

Brent Calis
