New Beginnings

I’ve never been one to shy away from change. After all, I am the same person who left everything familiar behind to teach English and travel the world. I am also the same person who decided to completely change the direction of my life when, after a 15 year teaching career, I decided to pursue my lifelong passion and go back to school to study professional photography.

For over 20 years, photography was a way for me to share what the world looked like through my lens, to share my travels and to express myself, but it was only in 2013 that I resolved to take that passion to the next level and learn the technical skills and techniques necessary to become a professional photographer. I now hold a diploma in Professional Photography from Inter-Dec College and am an emerging talent member of CAPIC - The Canadian Association of Professional Image Creators.

Although I have learnt a lot through my studies, personal projects and contracts with both private and commercial clients, my thirst for knowledge is not easily quenched. I am constantly learning to improve my technique, hone my talent and broaden my horizons by practicing every day, keeping up with current trends, following the work of other talented photographers, attending portfolio reviews and participating in photography workshops.

For almost two years, I have been sharing my work, offering photographic services and selling prints under the name Beautiful Colours Photography. However, I recently decided that, once again, it was time for a change. Therefore, I would like to welcome you to my new website, Deena Roth Photography. On the website, you can see my latest work, browse my portfolio, read client testimonials, learn a bit about my background and the services I provide, contact me to inquire about services, rates and bookings, and access my online store to purchase beautiful fine art prints.

On this blog, you can learn more about me and why I love photography. Most importantly, this is a place where I will be sharing recent and past work, my creative process from pre-production to post-production, behind-the-scenes glimpses of my photo shoots, guides for clients on how to prepare for and what to expect on a professional photo shoot, answers to FAQs, tutorials and photo tips, my personal experiences and adventures in the world of photography, some of the best locations to shoot in and around Montreal and beyond, and of course… my latest promotions!

I would like to take this opportunity to extend a huge thank you to my friends, family and the fellow artists who have encouraged me and supported me on this journey. Change is exciting, but it can also be quite daunting! The journey has only just begun…

So, stay tuned, and don’t hesitate to comment on my blog posts, as your valuable feedback is always appreciated. Please don’t forget that you can contact me anytime if you have any questions. I would love to hear from you!
