Veille Photography

I’m a portrait and romance photographer based in Alberta, Canada.

What started a love for photography for me was food; I love it when food is well cooked, and well presented, and come on, it’s a crime to have a good looking plate that you don’t take a picture of! I started living in Calgary shortly after high school and the Alberta Rockies are breathtaking, so I did landscape photography for a while! I then moved back in the Edmonton area and I didn’t want to put my camera down, so I started shooting people and now that’s practically all my photography’s known for.

I’m a sucker for good human connections and great stories, and there aren’t many things greater than taking part in capturing moments of some of the greatest stories people hold.

PityTheFool Fitness 

Hey! I’m Ethan, owner and trainer at PityTheFool Fitness, an Edmonton and area based personal training and fitness provider. I pursued my ACE Certification at Elevated Learning Academy in 2015, driven by a lifelong passion for sports and coaching. When I was younger, I was an avid volleyball and soccer player, as I got older my focus shifted towards hockey and football, both playing and coaching the latter. My interests are now directed to Olympic Weightlifting, though my love for team sports will never wane! Outside of sports and fitness, my other passion is music. You might find me behind a drum kit, singing along to the radio, or more than likely beat boxing to it. My one year old daughter seems to have found the same rhythm, which I can’t wait to nurture in her! Being a father has been incredibly humbling, rewarding, and has taught me a lot about both my strengths and weaknesses. Being a part of her growth is my greatest joy.
