About Victoria
I have been interested in Photography from a young age. Back then it was only
Analog Cameras and Darkrooms.
I started to get serious about Photography about 13 years ago buying my first
digital camera. I started to take classes here and there. Having my work shown
and being able to do presentations.
Life happens, long pause.
I found Langara CS Photography program; in 2017 I started to finally get to
work in the Darkroom and I was hooked!
For the better part of a year plus/minus I was in the Darkroom every Sunday for
four hours. Once I learned the basics I started to experiment. Loved it so much
I have built a Darkroom in my home.
I have recently been able to graduate Langara’s Photography program.
