The Creative Life
Her freelance photography career started as a hobby after the birth of her 2 daughters. She bought a camera and enrolled in a night school course, she was just merrily doing what she loved to do.
She submitted some images to a parenting magazine and much to her surprise they asked if they could licence the image for the cover of one of their national publications. That was a turning point. Over time she established her brand as a photographer in one of the most saturated industries based on her ability to connect with and capture the essence of her subjects. Her lifestyle photography was widely published in North American Commercial, Editorial & Book publishing projects, her stock was represented Internationally by Getty Images.
The focus of her photography work has since evolved to reflect her connection with animals, she has created fine art collections that are featured and collected in art galleries, shows, private collections and in her self published book Elephants Up Close.
Another turning point was her decision to enrol in a yoga class to deal with persistent back pain. Over time she overcame her dislike of yoga, so much so that she trained in the Iyengar Yoga Instructor Program for over 5 years. When she started out her type A personality could not stand even one minute of Svasagna (rest pose) at the end class. Nancy’s focus during her training was the practice of Pranayama (breathwork.)
