Meet Our Team



Kayla Hannaford, born and living in Ottawa, Ontario.

My love of photography stems from my father.

Starting back as far as I can remember we would go out in search of animals to photograph; the rush alone was enough to get me hooked.

I had my own camera in no time and, needless to say, I never put it down.

I have a vast love of photography from wildlife to high fashion.

The ability to capture beauty and manipulate light fascinates me, seeing as there is always something new to learn.

In a nutshell, what draws me to my profession is “never ending possibilities”.

There’s always something new to learn,

new to shoot, or a new lighting style to try.

I have definitely had some pretty cool experiences in my career thus far,

such as photographing “Robert Bateman”. Or having the honour of being chief judge of the Canadian Armed Forces photography Competition.

I have also shot for "Canadian Geographic" and travelled the world in search of “the shot”…  (still pending).

It’s my goal in every photo shoot to be at ease and have fun. If you have an idea throw it at me, no matter how out of the box.
