Every Wednesday, our school invites a working, successful photographer in to speak to the program.
Today's speaker was Shanghoon- http://shanghoon.com/Portfolio/Beverages/thumbs/ -a phenomenal commercial beverage, still life, and car photographer working with Westside Studios in Toronto. He also happens to be a Humber Photography grad, and has taught in the program as well.
It was really inspiring and super motivational. His work is jaw-dropping, and a few years ago, he could've been sitting in the same seat as I was today. He showed us his current portfolio work, as well as his grad portfolio- which I am currently working towards.
I guess today just really put it in to perspective- this is attainable, this is real, this could be me.
I was looking for a few more images to add to the "Personal" section of my website.
I felt like I was stuck into a particular genre, as I kind of have an obsession with vintage cars and car shows.
So I was searching through my hard drive, and I found this gem lost in there.
I took it a couple years, on a particular foggy night in my home town.
I set up the tripod, got the right settings down for the mood I wanted,
pressed the shutter and just ran, barefoot through the fog.
I'm glad I found it, and that it still looked as cool as I thought it did years ago.
Hey! So I have been working on my first website over the last couple weeks. I wanted something clean and simple to showcase my work.
And I think I finally got it!
Here's the link
It can also be found under the "Contact" page within this blog, (incase you lose it later!)
I would love it if you checked it out, and let me know what you think!
Commenting on this post would be really helpful so I can track its progress!
It is my very first one ever, so go easy on my baby.
Over the weekend, despite the freeeezing weather, I went out on a small assignment shoot- The Character Portrait. My trusty bearded friend Ian and I went out to a local cementary ( they aren't so creepy in the heart of winter), grabbed some snow, and went to work.
This was an available light portrait, shot around 3 o'clock in the afternoon. I wanted a fairly rugged appearance, so as to seem that he had been out in the weather for days. The semi-harsh shadows and uneven light helped me achieve this.

Let's start things simply; Hi!. In case you hadn't already figured it out, my name is Ainsleigh Ferguson. I am currently a student at Humber College in the Creative Photography program. So I am a growing and eager student photographer, set to graduate in June this year!
What else.... I have a dog (border collie/bullmastiff) and two cats, who you will probably end up seeing a lot of photos of. I also want to share with you some of my latest projects and some behind the scenes images of my work in progress. I guess I should also mention I am very new to this whole blogging thing,(hope its not crazy obvious), so go easy on me, share me your ideas on what you'd like me to try, and give me feedback on how I'm doing!
Thanks for taking the time out to learn some things about me,
Hopefully you'll be back again soon!
I am a photographer currently based in the Kitchener- Waterloo area, and photographing all over the GTA. I am a 2014 Humber Creative Photography graduate. For more information, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
