Lately, I have been enjoying more and more the documentary aspect of photography. Being there at the right moment. Capturing something that's worth showing. I get all excited when I get to snap that magic instant and freezing it in time. I realize that I am stimulated and inspired by improvisation. Feeling the vibration, anticipating, putting myself at the right place just before it happens. I am fascinated with people, characters. If I could, I would observe people for a living. Maybe I can... With my camera? Work in progress (WIP) I have known Francois for about 12 years now. In my DJ days, we where playing a lot together. We also had residencies together in Montreal in big venues like Unity, Circus and Stereo. Since I've retired from the scene in 2007, François hasn't stopped to rock the crowds in Montreal. His love and dedication to music that has soul makes him one of the best DJs I know. I am very proud to be part of his friends.
2014 is a year that I plan to focus on portraits. As I mentioned in the past portraits is one of my favorite thing to do in photography. Of course I already do a lot of portraits of my daughter but I will go outside of my comfort zone and photograph "real people". Ok I already cheated as Vanessa is not "real people" but I'll try to improve in the near future. A part from being the mother of my child, she's also an fashion designer. vanessamoore.com facebook.com/iheartvanessamoore lebijou.ca
