BIO Regina Garcia began her would-be lifelong romance with photography at the early age of fourteen when her father handed her her first camera. Relentlessly taking pictures of her younger brother and his friends soon thereafter, portraiture became the focal point of her obsession. Strangers who intrigued her were shyly asked to look into her lens, her camera becoming like an all-access pass into the new and interesting lives of others. After studying at the Alberta College of Art and Design she arrived in Toronto to begin a career in commercial photography and found her niche in (what else?) portraiture, lifestyle and landscape. Her beautiful work, at once invitingly sunny yet as thoughtful as weather on the horizon, includes pure expressions of her subjects' personalities. Challenging herself to craft powerfully authentic imagery, Regina strips away the excess to reveal and capture something all too rare - easy, natural photography that elevates 'simple' to an enticing art form. Her clients list includes such notables as Canadian Tire, McDonalds, All Bran, Catelli and Coca-Cola.
