Rachel’s career as a photographer began in 2004 when at the age of 20 she began shooting concerts and editorial features for Chart magazine. She has since completed a BFA in Criticism and Curatorial Practice at OCADU (2008) and an MA in Photographic Preservation and Collections Management at Ryerson University (2010), and has held photo-related jobs at the Ryerson Image Centre and the Canadian Press.   

In March 2017, Rachel opened Picturpaint Studios, a mix-use studio dedicated to photography, abstract painting and art staging… but photography quickly won the race! With her focus now set primarily on photo taking, Rachel splits her time between shoots in studio and on location. She manages every aspect of her business, from client bookings to photo editing, always ensuring a unique one-on-one approach from start to finish.
