THERE WAS A PLAN: GO TO SCHOOL, BECOME A NURSE, EARN MONEY, LIVE LIFE.

Lesson learned. Life doesn't care about your plans.

RESHMA AUDHO  After I inevitably left Nursing- I took up law enforcement and worked at Pearson International as a Canadian Border Services Officer. I loved the industry (still do), yet when I would get home from a 12 hour shift, I’d pick up my camera. It wouldn’t matter what I was taking a picture of, as long as it was the best picture of that thing I could take.  My arsenal includes a Canon T2I, 60D, 7D and most recently a 5D MK ii. The T2i was bought with no intention of starting a business but it certainly jump-started the motion. The 60D was bought with intentions to sell it for a profit and I couldn't part with it- it's safe to say I don't mind that it didn't reach it's intended destination.  In a nutshell, I’m a quirky person with an overactive mind. My zodiac sign is Cancer & I love the summer! I attended and graduated from Sheridan College with honors for Emergency Management and Police Foundations. I am happiest outside on a warm day near some water, star gazing, or animal watching. My love for these things are translated in my gallery  Nature and Landscapes.   Apart from my hilarious mother, quick-witted father, bigger younger brother and small social circle, your brain has now been dipped into the pool of my life (yes, I came up with that myself.)

ALVIN YRANON  After high school, I attended George Brown College for Culinary Management. While cooking was a great outlet for my creative side, I didn’t enjoy the long hours and had little time to enjoy other things in life. I quit and got a new job working in the aviation industry (weird, I know) before being accepted into the millwright program at Durham College. I guess you can say I’m a “jack of all trades” kind of dude.  Growing up in three different countries with four brothers was, I guess you could say, a bit of an adventure. My dad bought a Nikon camera and a Sony camcorder to document us growing up, and lots of photos and videos were taken over the years.   When my dad introduced me to his gadgets, my obsession with photography began. A couple of years ago I bought my very first camera, a Sony A77, and played around with it whenever I had free time. I managed to learn a few tricks here and developed an interest in nature and portrait photography. I traveled around the world to further expand my knowledge and challenged myself to take better pictures, learning photo editing techniques along the way.    In autumn of 2017 I learned about internship opportunities at Tintalee Photography through Reshma’s friend, my co-worker at the time. He knew that I was interested in photography and had the passion and potential to create and produce high quality work. I have been an intern at Tintalee Photography ever since. I have made friends, enjoyed delicious food, attended amazing celebrations and learned techniques from professional photographers in a fun and lively atmosphere. I love being behind the camera and capturing some of the most exciting and intimate moments of peoples' lives, so that they can remember them for a lifetime.

ANNA SAMMY  Hold up, I'm a photographer?  There’s Reshma ...and then there’s Anna [me], the compact version (as I'd like to think). School was not fun at ALL. 3 failed attempts and I've finally graduated with Law Enforcement on my 4th try. I’m currently involved with security and loving the industry, but photography has become another passion of mine. The realization of my love for pictures seeped in as I started “working” more often with TP. Even though photography has become a main source of life mojo, I also keep myself busy with an office job, and I haven't stopped searching for a career in my graduate field.  I began interning with Tintalee Photography in November of 2015. Starting off with TP was an open window for me as a means of furthering my love of photography. I enjoy capturing the important raw emotions and feelings life surprises us with- this way we are able to cherish the immortalized moment. Being a part of this business has helped me expand my network and knowledge of people and camera tricks. This is never work for me as photography is my main hobby and TP has given me that opportunity.  To specifically mention what part I enjoy most is very difficult because I love it all! From set up to tear down, I enjoy doing everything I do at TP (food perks DEFINITELY sit at the top of the list). From all the gear that I get to play around with, my favorite is my own newly gifted (thanks Mom!) Canon 60D. I spend any extra time I have fidgeting with the new camera and trying to improve my photography skills, as well as bringing fresh ideas to the business! Photography is definitely something I do not want to give up. I plan on maintaining it throughout my life - branded as TP. Photography is now officially integrated as part of my personal and working life, and I hope to always facilitate the growth and success of not just TP, but myself as well.

RAVIN AUDHO  My goal was to be a firefighter. A dream I still hold. I started working with Tintalee Photography to make some extra cash and to help my sister carry all the equipment - essentially, I was the muscle. Although this was not something I thought i'd be doing more than a couple times, I quickly started to enjoy all the aspects of photography. A little about me, I like to think I'm a rational guy. I'll see a situation and try to find the quickest and most efficient way to remedy it for all parties. I am happiest when I'm playing sports or watching the Toronto Maple Leafs play (Go Leafs Go!). I can believe its not butter.   So, why photography? Photography has, in some way, always been a part of my life. Ever since I was young, my father would always document all the little moments in our family. From eating breakfast together, to watching videos of us eating breakfast together. It was a tad much. Growing up with my smaller older sister, it was easy to see how much those moments meant to us. The moments of emotion. We can always go back and look at the photos to remind us of who we were because it was captured in photos. Now, I want to be the one who captures those moments for others so they can look back and reminisce. The days where you were the happiest, the days you didn't want to end, they days surrounded by family and friends. The good ole' days.
