Erin Cebula and I have worked together a few times now since 2006 - wow how time flies! Erin is always a joy to work with not to mention to photograph, and I'm so happy and honoured that she came back to me again for her most recent set of branding and publicity portraits!
I would best describe her as one of the most down to earth, kind, sweet, uplifting and charming people I know with an uncanny ability to put anyone at ease and make them feel special. People automatically feel comfortable with her and I personally admire her consistent positivity, joy and quirky nature as well as her innate ability to bring out the best in those she meets.
Erin is also a very compassionate and giving person, and an animal lover, which is why she and I get along so well! She has been a BC SPCA supporter for many years and for the past four years participated in their annual "lockup" where she spends the day in a kennel. Erin has raised over $20K for animals in need - wow!!. More recently, Erin joined World Vision on a trip to Guatemala in support of their No Child For Sale campaign. She visited many children living in poverty while producing four public service announcements for Global BC. It was a life changing experience for Erin as you can image and she is very proud to have played a small part in attracting close to 500 (and counting) new child sponsors.
As one of Vancouver's most well-loved personalities and ET Canada's celebrity reporter and host, Erin gets to meet and interview some of Hollywood's biggest stars. As a recognizable personality in her own right, Erin's image and how she shows up in the world plays a crucial role in her own personal success and in what she loves to do in her work.
Erin wanted her new portraits to convey authentically who she is at the core level, encompassing all her best qualities so that people naturally resonate with her in the virtual world as they do when they meet her in real life. We had a fun shoot as always and I'm really pleased to say that we accomplished all that with her new portraits.
Get to know Erin better and watch her ET Canada profile video and a enjoy a few of our favourites portraits from the most recent publicity photo shoot we did together... Enjoy!
