Born in the prairies and raised in the mountains, Shannon is a Canadian photographer who’s lived and worked in France, Spain, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, and from a ship in the Caribbean.
Shannon studied photography for nine years of her academic career. Guided by a deep interest in humanity and culture, she also studied anthropology in order to enhance her photographic practice. She completed a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology with a Photography minor at Concordia University in Montreal, QC ,and holds a Diploma of Fine Arts from the Okanagan University College in Kelowna, BC.
Her work in photojournalism spans fourteen years and includes publications such as VICE, Rolling Stone and Future Music Magazine. Shannon’s favourite style to shoot is documentary, capturing the immensely rich myriad of life as it unfolds, unadulterated. Her work has touched on themes of culture, political issues, seduction, destruction, degeneration, and land use.
Shannon is currently living and working out of Squamish, BC. She would like to gratefully and respectfully acknowledge that she lives and works on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) and Lilwat7úl (Lil’wat) Nations. She honours their language, culture and history.
