Originally from Sault Ste. Marie Ontario, Krista moved to Toronto in 1987 to study theatre and become an actor and musician. Although music is still very much a large part of her life, she gravitated towards photography in 2004 with an aim to formalize her skills. Prior to and initially while pursuing photography Krista worked as a Community Housing Worker serving the homeless population in Toronto’s east end for over 10 years.
Krista studied photography at George Brown College and assisted established professional photographers in order to gain more technical knowledge and experience. Krista quickly found free-lance work, mostly in portraiture. This work included assignments for Quill and Quire magazine, which gave her opportunities to photograph authors such as Dionne Brand, Gil Adamson and Ken Sparling (Cover November 2005).
Krista is a freelance portrait and lifestyle photographer. Krista relishes time with her family and writes and performs music with her friends.
