This is my amazing friend and photographer Avey Christiansen. She is a Fine Art Photographer from Camrose, Alberta.

My amazing friend and talented photographer, Avey Christiansen.

We first met each other at art school and have been great friends ever since. I think we both chose to begin our careers in portrait photography as a way of building a sustainable career in the arts. At first we tried to avoid the whole “starving artist” cliché and although portrait photography was profitable, we have since shifted gears and gone in new directions following our hearts and our dreams. It’s so nice to have a friend going through a similar artistic journey to share all of my ups and downs, successes and uncertainties with.


As a self-proclaimed “city-girl” she possesses the uncanny ability to transform the undiscovered beauty of small town rural Alberta into stunning works of art.


If you love any of these images as much as I do head over to her shop on Etsy and buy one of her NEW metallic prints (before she realizes that she is seriously undercharging for them!).

The images above are only a small selection of her most recent work. To see more of her incredible photographs, visit her website and blog HERE.
