About Skylar

After inheriting her mother’s unwanted point and shoot at the age of six, Skylar and photography have been inseparable ever since. Her mother grew up in a flat that doubled as a photo development lab. Their mutual love for photography continues their journey through romantic annals of 35mm film. Today, Skylar works as a conference photographer while completing her Bachelor’s at the University of Toronto. She also writes freelance articles and copy for for non-profit organizations. In her spare time, Skylar enjoys giving her dog, Haidyn, unsolicited haircuts. She makes oil paintings while waiting for the hair to grow back. Sometimes her paintings wind up in exhibitions and loving homes.

Art Stuffs

When I was young, my mother used to take me to art demonstrations at the mall downstairs. There was no Bob Ross on-site, only a college student unenthusiastically waving the latest crayons beside a half-finished painting. Read (and see) what happened next here.

Cream of my crop! Enjoy!


35mm film

Yashica Microfinesse AF

Lomography Fisheye No. 2

Elusive and ephemeral, thoughtless clicks—thoughtful murmurs. Moments deserving of breaking the bank.


luella massey theatre

The not-very-dark underbelly (underground) of a UofT theatre. A space in which I spent too much time waiting to be called. A space where dried paint cans spent too much time forgotten.


oappa conference

The dress and speak are business, but the gestures and arrangements prove this annual event is also a jovial get-together. Light is better in some places than others, but the faces are consistently great.

some other things i have seen

Canon 80D

Sparkly moments of life that deserve to be preserved with a static visual representation.



2019 Summer photo journal

Summer of Forever

A third of my summer reduced to rendered images. The other two thirds were cool too, I just don’t have the photos to show for it. Click here to see Italy, England, and Monterey Bay.
