About the instructors:
f.8 photography started out as just us two – trish & matt. We’re a Calgary, AB based husband and wife photography team who have been shooting weddings together for 18 years – since the good old days of film! As a couple, we laugh a lot, constantly tease & push each other & wake up every day thrilled to have a career that we can enjoy together.

I (trish) came to wedding photography from assisting & working for the best in the industry, after earning my BFA. Matt began shooting weddings when we started dating & then working together. He quickly discovered a new creative, talented, (gasp) ‘artsy’ side of himself he never knew he had. After having kids of our own, I branched out into newborn, baby & kid photography & instantly fell in love with the genre. Capturing those special moments for families is such a privilege.

Over time we’ve grown and carefully handpicked, trained & love having a select few amazing & talented photographers on our f8 team. We are known for beautiful & colourful images that capture the fun & connection between people. Real life, real love, real photography. Just like back in the days of film.

Throughout the years we have attended many seminars, workshops & courses & now teach our own through The Camera Store & at SAIT.

A working knowledge of DSLR camera & ability to shoot in manual mode.
