Toronto, ON Canada
Shayla has has been taking photographs since the age of 14 when she received her first camera as a gift. She is self taught in both film and digital photography, and did not start considering photography as a career until recent years when she began creating concepts, following colour schemes, and telling stories with her photographs. Shayla specializes in portraiture and usually adheres to a minimal and monochromatic look across all of her work to make sure the subject is the focus. She describes her photography as 'personality oriented' because she loves to capture people as they are, in natural lighting and familiar atmospheres.
