Random Moments Photography by Sandi Graham-McWade
But, who is Sandi?
I am an award winning Durham based specialty photographer, offering Portrait, Maternity, Newborn, Family (including beloved Pets) and Engagement/Wedding or Event photography with the choice of in Studio (Ajax Ontario) or fully mobile for a special location shoot or specific site or home, in the Durham and Greater Toronto Ontario region areas.
I am a passionate photographer, a wife and mother of four. My love of photography spans more than three decades as I have been composing photographs since the age of ten. I received my first camera (and subsequent inspiration) as a birthday gift from my mother. Little did I know, that gift would change my life and open a world of artistic photography for me. What started out as photographing the simple pleasures in life, later turned out to be a love and passion in exploring the artistry and beauty that can be captured through the lens of a camera.
What do I shoot with?
I shoot with only top of the line Canon & Nikon (flagship) DSLRs - the very best that both Canon and Nikon has to offer. I have invested a lot of money for the best gear out there, and there is only one reason for that - You! You are trusting and investing in me to capture the very best images for you and your family, so it should stand to reason that I use the best there is to get what you need.
I own and shoot with the Canon 1Dx & Canon 5Ds as well as the Nikon D4.
I carry only top of the line Lenses: 14-24mm ƒ/2.8; 16-35mm ƒ/2.8; 24-70mm ƒ/2.8; 70-200mm ƒ/2.8; 120-400mm ƒ/4.5-5.6 Primes: 50mm ƒ/1.4; 85mm ƒ/1.2mm & 85mm ƒ/1.4; 105mm ƒ/2.8.
With both the 1Dx, 5Ds and the D4, I work very hard to capture life's irreplaceable memories. Don't trust just anyone to capture your vision and events, memories are something that can never be replaced. Let my work speak for itself. If you have any questions, please feel free to inquire.
