DeClerq Photography

My name is Meaghan DeClerq and I am a soon-to-be graduate from the Media Studies Program, emphasizing in Image Arts (Photography) at the University of Guelph-Humber in Toronto.

When I held my first camera I had an epiphany - I knew that photography would become a larger part of my life. Food photography particularly inspired me. “Hold up! Don’t touch your food!” No matter what food was on the table, I had to photograph it. It is important to note that when I say photograph, I mean moving plates around until I got the right lighting - leading to many cold dinners. Food photography in specific has been my passion. The way light can hit all the textures and colours amazes me.

Outside of my passion for food, I enjoy many styles of photography particularly portraiture and commercial photography. Working with living human beings is a much different experience from the stationary food items I am used to photographing. Regardless of the style, what I love most about photography, is the creative freedom. Whether it’s being your own food stylist, or picking your own wardrobe, photography lets your work shine.

I hope you view my work as what it is meant to be - creative freedom. Let the colours and textures take you somewhere special and different from everyday imagery.
