Tracey Tomtene grew up and has lived in various parts of Western Canada and has also made temporary homes abroad in the UK and New Zealand. Although she studied business in university, it was a black and white darkroom photography course that would reveal her craft.
After working in the corporate world for several years, she finally began her journey as a full time photographer by quitting her day job as a Communications Manager and traveling through SE Asia and NZ in 2008.
Since her return, she has continued to shoot street and travel photography, developing a style in her imagery that captivates and evokes emotion.
When she isn’t photographing or makin’ stuff, she is torturing herself in a Bikram yoga studio, getting her toes salty along one of Vancouver’s magnificent coastlines or visiting far off lands (where she feels most at home).
