Nature & Portrait Photography featuring Vanessa Dewson


Photography has long been a passion of Vanessa’s. She has a degree in Image Arts from Ryerson University but worked for many years in non-profit organizations where she gained skills as a graphic designer.

She is happy to offer both sets of skills to her clients. On the photography side, She specializes in portraits, nature and travel photography. On the design side, She has experience creating corporate identities and promotional materials for businesses and events, as well as WordPress websites.

Vanessa has always been a curious, quiet observer of the world around her and is thrilled to have found a career that allows her to do so on a daily basis. Waiting for that perfect expression or capturing details that are often overlooked are what get her really excited about her craft. This attention to detail is also evident in her design work where she strives to meet her clients taste and needs.

In 2012, Vanessa began offering workshops and led her first photo tour to India. She was hookedand has since joined the Ottawa School of Art as an instructor and led another tour to Iceland.
