On my days off I can be found running the seawall Vancouver, at a film festival with my spouse or at happy hour with the ladies. I love helping others learn and work full time as a photography professor at a local college in Vancouver. After spending over 15 years as a wedding photographer, I have semi-retired and now take select, referral only weddings.
I’m originally from Northern Ontario and spent time living in St Maarten before moving to Vancouver where I live with my partner in Yaletown. I studied at Laurentian University for my Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree and Cambrian College for Digital Art Diploma. After graduating I worked for a few years as a Graphic Designer, Creative Director and Museum Curator before delving into photography full time.
I’ve often been told by clients that my photos are different and I attribute this to my focus on attractive lighting and directed posing. As a studio trained fashion photographer, my experience in studio lighting and fashion photography set add a unique, editorial vibe to my photos.
I have a separate photography company that works in commercial and fashion photography, which can be found here: https:/www.charlsross.ca
