Food Gypsy Photography & Video:

A perpetual student, Cori is constantly learning.   She loves the play of light and shadow, colour, texture and focus.  It is both an art and a daily practice.  It’s both a skill she continues to cultivate, an art she passionately pursues.

Here’s a short list of the photographic equipment in use on Food Gypsy (available for freelance shoots):

  • Nikon D5000 (SLR, prime)
  • Nikon DX, Nikkor 18 – 55mm lens
  • Nikon DX, Nikkor 50 – 200mm lens

On the video side, Cori shoots with both a Nikon D5000 and a Nikon One, but her favorite videography toy, is her Go Pro.  It’s shockproof, waterproof, withstand speeds of up to 200mph and depths of up to 60m.  It’s is her fun, sporty, put-it-in-the-flour-bin, wear-it-on-your-head camera.  (She vows to use it more.)

With a style that is uniquely her own, Cori is highly adaptable to a direction that fits your brand.   Largely she shoots natural light, capturing life as it is, where it is but loves to stretch and compose a more refined style with studio lighting when she can.  She believes perfection lies in the most imperfect of moments and rarely uses photoshop for anything other than simple corrections and graphics because – life is messy.

“Not every shot has to be high art, not every shot has to be perfectly exposed, but every shot MUST tell a story.  At my heart, I’m a storyteller.”  ~ C. Horton

These are a few of her favorite stories; from the kitchen, the market, the road and, the heart.
