[FRAMED] Ep. 12 Jennifer Hudson "Fine Art Conceptual Photography"

I am totally inspired after watching this video from "Framed" about an amazing fine art photographer, Jennifer Hudson! One of my projects in the near future is to do portrait work on an outdoor studio setting. Can't wait.

Was it a waste of time?

I did not take any weddings for 2014 because I was involved in a commercial project at CCM in Woodstock, ON, a brand new mini shopping mall on the southeast of the city. For seven months I was responsible for creating and maintaining their website and social media pages. I  photographed products and food and created all the promotional materials.

Because fine art has always been a passion of mine and computers were my field of work for over 15 years, it is only natural that I feel comfortable using the computer to create my art. I love transforming a photograph into a beautiful piece of art. You can find my work in fine art by going to and clicking the Fine Art link.

While managing CCM, I ran my own small portrait studio where I created a body of fine art work and at the same time, photographed family and modern female portraits with more emphasis in my Signature Style portraiture.

A couple of months ago the owner of CCM decided to sell the property and the project came to an end.

So, was it wasted time? I don't think so. The past year was an amazing learning experience. It gave me a chance to take workshops and classes by some of the top photographers and marketing teachers in the world, and I have a much clearer view of what I want to achieve in my photography and artistic career. I am working hard now to re-establish my business in Ontario and focus on reaching my desired target market.

I have some exciting ideas coming in the near future and will be updating here and on social media.

Until then, stay creative.
