Toronto based photographer Ardean Peters possesses a passion for expressive portraits that capture true and honest moments with her subjects. Having received her first film camera at the age of 13 from her father - and then gifted with her first digital SLR camera years later - she is self-taught in the art of photography. Through that vital exploration Ardean learned to combine her love of Photography, Light and People into one beautiful art form. A graduate of Seneca College, with a Diploma in Fashion Design, photography is what holds her passion. As she playfully exclaims, “Photography is freeing, in that it allows me to play. This keeps the child in me alive and excited to experience new things.” Ardean has publicly showcased her photography through her ‘In Bed with Awesome Women: Portrait Series’ and is working on an on-going project, 'Her Hair: A Portrait series celebrating black women's hair'. A continual student of “seeing the light,” Ardean is available for Portraits, Headshots, Family Portraits and Branding sessions.
