Erin Crossman Bio
Erin Crossman is a graduate of York University, Toronto Ontario, graduating with a Specialized Honours degree in Visual arts. She loves to paint with her camera so to speak, using the light and atmosphere to do so. Coming to photography from a painting and drawing background has given her a more unique and artistic way of capturing her subjects.
Erin Crossman has spent her life with animals and exploring the beauty of the woods and countryside. She started working with horses at 13 years old and worked with them for years before turning her love of animals to dogs and dog training. She is also the mother of 2 boys. These experiences have given her a firsthand knowledge of how animals and children are when they are just being natural and themselves. Erin prides herself on capturing that feel, not the typical cookie cutter image and this is where Erin Crossman shines as a photographer. Her images most often give the feel she is not there intruding and we see a very intimate view of the subject.
Erin prefers to shoot in natural light and outdoors whenever possible or suitable. However Erin will comfortably use lights and shoot indoors if this is what the client prefers.
- Pets (Dogs, Horses, Cats, other animals)
She is also able to shoot other subjects as asked, and has shot such subjects as old farm properties, dog sports, weddings and events.
Photos are taken out on a variety of outdoor locations, suitable to the client’s preference or in the client’s home or business. Erin has a very calm relaxed attitude able to help put her subjects at ease during a shoot. This is critical especially when working with animals and children.
