Hi, I'm Kelsey Goodwin, and I have an addiction.
My photography obsession really came to light in high-school, when I started working at a photography studio in my small hometown. I learned to compose and capture images and manipulate them in photoshop (if only real-life zits were as easy to remove!) I was hooked.
I've always been in love with photography, but I didn't think I would pursue it as a career. Pressure to take over the family business, and get a college education led me to a year at university, most of which was spent neglecting my schoolwork in favor of shooting for the student newspaper. I realized that I would rather fail at something I love than succeed at something that my heart wasn't into. So, that first sign led me to make the spontaneous decision to cancel my classes (and university job) for the next year so I could sign up for photo school and it was one of the best moves I've ever made!
So, in 2009 I recieved my diploma in Professional Photography at the Western Academy of Photography. I still live in the beautifully artistic and cultural city of Victoria on Vancouver Island.
My philosophy is to be honest and passionate, put yourself out there, and believe in what you're doing. In turn, people will believe in you.Thank you for stopping by! Please don't hesitate to contact me regarding any questions or crazy ideas!
