Hi there! My name is Maddie and it’s a pleasure to meet you!
First and foremost, I want to thank you for taking the time to visit my website and scroll through the collections of my everyday adventures.
In fact, if you’ve got some time, I’d like to give you a little backstory on how I created “SWEET B PHOTOGRAPHY”.
Thirteen years ago I developed a love for photography when my favourite pastime was taking photos of my canine best friend, Tallie. During these years, Tallie and I traveled up and down every country road our small town had to offer for her photo shoots. Of course, we made sure to take appropriate breaks during our long road trips which typically was a cheese snack and fresh water for her and granola bars and iced tea for me. Not to mention, we’d bask in the sweet melodies of The Beatles, Elton John, Fleetwood Mac and whatever was on the Top 40 charts.
Needless to say, I found my passion and through extensive research (*cough, cough* endless hours looking for photography tips and tricks on Pinterest) I became a self-taught photographer.
With experience under my belt I made the choice to expand my interests and dive deep into landscape and wildlife photography. Due to my decision I also made the leap into upgrading my photography equipment not once, but twice. The first upgrade included my very first SLR camera (Nikon B500) where I was able to chase the pastel sunrises and fiery sunsets until there was nothing left but a light dusting of stars on a midnight blue sky. My second upgrade was to a DSLR camera (Canon Rebel t6i) which has strengthened my ability as a photographer like I could never imagine - hello zoom lenses! For the record, I still use both cameras to this day and thanks to the upgraded equipment I have been able to achieve crisp, high definition photos like never before.
The exposure I have been offered with my photography is truly moving. Thusfar, I have been fortunate enough to have my photography recognized by the social media accounts for major companies such as The Weather Network, Outdoor Photography Magazine, MEC and I even won a contest where my photo of the Bow River now graces the front cover of a corporate photography calendar.
What was once a hobby has now become a passion project of mine. A desire to share my images of Canada, educate you on our beautiful, yet endangered wildlife and of course share some “life hacks” on how to navigate around our most sought after travel destinations.
If there’s one thing I hope you take away from this website is that you feel inspired - inspired to create, learn, share and explore.
