During the covid-19 pandemic i as a photographer wasn’t able to shoot like normal but I was determined to continue shooting! I decided to depend on FaceTime to be my camera in the last month! I had numerous messages from people wanting to set up times to shoot over the phone and it was amazing. I met people from Halifax, Belgium, Calgary and right here in Saskatoon. We would chat over FaceTime and I would help my clients pose over the phone while I took live FaceTime photos to which then I would take and edit and post on social media’s like Instagram and TikTok and gained lots of exposure for them! People love the idea. It was such a cool experience for both me and all the people I worked with and a positive outcome to a sad situation.
