is it me you’re looking for?
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.

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.
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.
2019 Summer photo journal
Afforded with a tremendously long five-month break, I embarked on a series of unexpected journeys. Some in pursuit for capital gain, and others at the cost of that gain. This journal represents the latter half—the more hedonistic (and consequently costly) half—reduced to words decorating photographs. Click here to see it.
