Me & Finding beauty in the ordinary

BOHEMIAN -noun [ C ] UK /bəʊˈhiː.mi.ən/ /bəˈhiː.mi.ən/ US /boʊˈhiː.mi.ən/
A person who is interested in art, music, and/or literature, and lives in a very informal way, ignoring the usually accepted ways of behaving – Cambridge Dictionary

ME – Vancouver based Photographer/ Photographic artist. Well, I call myself  “self-proclaimed photo-shooting addict”. :)

Born and raised in Japan. After living/traveling many places – including my inner world – I am now settling down in Vancouver, Canada with my partner and two old cats.

A dreamer, who has a relationship with Sky, Sea and Clouds, who often forget the world. A novice yet enthusiastic Tango learner. When I’m not shooting…most likely, I’m dancing.

I don’t dislike rainy days. Absolute feeling driven…Perfectly imperfect.

For my photographic services – I believe in raw beauty. I don’t use cheesy corny photo-props. I don’t expect you to pose/smile like fashion models but yourself. I strive to find the beautiful lights & shadows and go after the connection between you and I. I only ask you to be YOU.

So. You tell me your story – I’ll show you how I see.  >>INVESTMENT

話して下さい。あなたの事。 私の目に映るあなたをお見せしたいから。

Finding beauty in the ordinary – Majority of photos here are not related to my photographic services but I share everyday life images…of people , moments and gift from Nature through my eyes.

N.B. I love people's candid shots and always talk with people after I shot them. However, sometimes the situation doesn't allow me to do so. If you are featured in any of images, please feel free to contact me - I'd be happy to share the printable image with you. Or, if you'd like me to remove it, I’ll do so accordingly.

Thank you,

Mariko Evans

P.S. I speak Japanese, English, Tango and Photography.
