This month I am featuring Sophie Photo, a talented photographer in Victoria, BC. Well actually two people, Sophie and Rob. But for this post I will be talking about Sophie Lecavalier.
Sophie contacted me to do a remake on her logo. When I went to her site I really liked what I saw so I said yes to the logo remake and I enjoyed Sophie’s work so much that I decided I’d like to feature her on my blog this month.
Here is a small portion of her bio. You can see the rest on her site at http://sophiephoto.com/ .
Sophie has been passionate about photography for 20 years now and with the advent of the digital age this passion only increases each day.
Over the past 20 years she has taken courses, self-study and continually updated her skills. She has perfected her practical and technical abilities so her camera is an extension of herself. She can concentrate on the emotions and connections that make the difference between a good picture and a great one. She now offers that experience to your family or business.
One of Sophie’s latest passions in her photography is doing Glamour photo shoots. Although there are not very many in her portfolio yet, I can see already that she’s already doing a fantastic job.
Here are a few samples of Sophie’s photography. To see more please visit her website http://sophiephoto.com/ .

As well as having Artist of the Month I have now decided to feature a Photographer each month.

This month I’ve chosen Patrick Rochon. I picked him because of the unique way he uses light in his photographs. I don’t think I’ll try to explain what he does myself, instead you can read this short bio of Patrick.

Patrick is an award-winning Light Painting photographer with over 19 years of experience. First prize winner at the Nikon photo contest in Japan, Patrick has done Light Painting photography for various fashion and rock magazines, CD jackets, DVDs, posters, internet and other promotion materials. Clients also include Toyota and Honda. Born in Montreal, Canada, Patrick has lived mainly in Tokyo, New York and Paris for 15 years.

“My medium is LIGHT (moving lights) trough various media.I mainly use photography and video to capture the movement I create with lights. I started light-painting, combine with photography doing long exposure in the dark, in 1992. In 1999 I started creating videos and performances with lights. Then with friends we created a multimedia group and we built costumes of lights. Using video feedback, we performed by ”light-painting” on a giant screen creating a new visual experience.” -PR

Here are just a few of his amazing photographs. For more check out his website http://www.patrickrochon.com/.
