Kim Bellavance Photographe’s next chapter unveiled
Welcome to my new website and the start of a new chapter in the journey of my photographic career. I’m excited to share my creative vision and be able create special bonds through my passion for Photography.
The passion behind Kim Bellavance Photographe
I held my first SLR at the age of 15 and right away, it just felt natural. At the time, I had no idea that Photography would ultimately become my life, from the way I see things as picture frames and the enduring relationships I’ve been fortunate to form. For me – This was it.
Inspired by the Fashion industry and natural feminine beauty, I quickly developed a unique style in Portrait Photography. With a slew of new and creative ideas constantly on my mind, I was fortunate to have brave friends that were willing to follow and support me on sometimes, somewhat crazy ideas! From breaking into derelict buildings, to climbing water towers and sometimes convincing them to pose nude in published photographs, they followed me everywhere simply just trusting that the results would all be worth it.
Career opportunities in photography I got
I’ve come a long way in my development, I took every door that led me to new opportunities always trying to be a sponge for the knowledge passed onto me.
I’ve had so many roles starting out in a photo store, to being a newspaper photojournalist, sports event photographer and even taking photos for yearbooks. Every day has always been a different day. Today, I specialize in Portrait Photography passionately capturing the real essence of people. I once shadowed in a high end fashion studio in Montreal and I quickly understood that my love for photography and my place in it, just didn’t belong in the fake world of fashion. It belonged in the real world with real people.
My true purpose as your photographer
I get to know my clients and I learn who they are. Their strengths, their weaknesses and sometimes even their greatest insecurities. My true reward comes from the transformation I see in my clients through our sessions. I love it when the person who tells me they’re worried they’ll break my camera or will need extensive digital retouching, turns to me and tells me that they’ve never felt so photogenic and that they simply can’t wait to do it again.
Today I specialize in Portrait, Events and Wedding photography. I love what I do, and this is my life. My clients are my story and I’m here to share with them, my creative vision.
I’m Kim Bellavance, a Vancouver based Portrait, Events and Wedding Photographer.
