ABOUT ME

In 23 years, Jacquie Matechuk has earned a reputation for capturing ‘the moment’ with images that speak to the journey & successes of her subjects, it’s her profound love for storytelling that gives her subjects a voice to be heard. Always striving to produce visuals that are both thought-provoking and emotionally relatable. “Our inherent connection to the natural world reveals our complete dependence on the health and biodiversity of this complex planet. And I believe as creatives, it falls on us to generate content that is relatable and engaging for those who may never experience firsthand, the places and things we do.”  

 

Whether she’s focused on epic scenery, iconic architecture, wildlife conservation, or professional sports, Jacquie’s goal remains the same. Put the viewer in the moment and set their mind free.

Today, Jacquie shares her passion for photography as a Canon Canada Ambassador, anxious to teach other creators how to nurture and grow their passion. Whether she’s mentoring a small group of photographers in the pristine wilderness of the Canadian coastline or working with the CCPC (Canadian Conservation Photographers Collective) to partner with organizations leading the fight to protect what we have.
