dani Carlton
Owner & Lead Photographer (BFA)
I have been actively practicing photography for 10 years. My dad was a photographer when I was a child so naturally the artistic form was already in my blood. In high school I learned for the first time how to shoot, develop and process film; this was the moment I fell in love with photography. With my father by my side showing me how to use his massive SLR he had bought 20 years prior, I knew I had to learn the art form. I was so intrigued by the idea of capturing a moment in time and seeing it come to life in the darkroom trays was such an exciting feeling. I was accepted into OCAD University to study Fine Art Photography in 2006; this was a huge change from the laid back ideals of photography in high school. Learning how to mimic light in the darkroom, gaining more control over manual film settings on your camera, then later being introduced to the booming world of digital photography. I found a niche in portraits and pushed myself to grow in and out of the studio setting. 
I had many great projects throughout my university career, but the real love came with the personal work I was doing on my own. The guidance received by peers, professors, and professionals within the industry really allowed me to flourish as an artist. I continue to shoot a variety of imagery, my heart truly belongs to women's portrait photography where I focus on bringing out each individuals natural beauty and allow their personality to shine through.
