Camila Notari is our new in house resident makeup artist. Camila will be located in the front of our space in our portrait studio. We are so excited to have this international artist in house who has more than 17 years as a beauty professional. Her education started in her native Brazil and she has never stopped learning and improving her craft. Camila took several courses in schools and workshops with professionals and renowned companies in different countries such as Spain, Colombia, Argentina and Canada.

In Toronto she finished a degree in makeup where she has grown in her experience with all makeup styles, from beauty makeup, theatre, cinema, prosthetic makeup to creature & design. I was graduated in Art & Design Makeup at the Faculty of Makeup CMU. After that, I felt I needed to know more about the arts, so in 2018 I majored in Foundation and Art Design at George Brown College, also in Toronto.

IN HER OWN WORDS

sobre-camila-notari.jpg

My soul is restless, my mind is always full of ideas, and I think the days should be longer so that I could fit all the tasks within 24 hours. I am passionate about my work, by the way, it was the time that I used to define myself with only a professional title; there are several Camilas within myself. I am an educator first, then an artist, makeup artist, mother, woman, passionate about photography, painting, sculpture and I love reading a good book. The smell of the book in my hands enchants me, but the ease of digital reading has conquered me! I love coffee, too; black and without milk!

SAMPLE WORK

We Welcome Billy Vasilios - Residency Artist

We Welcome Billy Vasilios - Residency Artist

I was 8 years old when my mother first let me take a photo with her bulky Polaroid instant camera.

Even though it was 1979, I can still remember the feeling, the weight, and the joy of being able to capture real, genuine moments.

It wasn’t long after that my appreciation turned into a passion, and that passion led me to a career.

Having studied Journalism at Humber College in the 90s, I decided to merge my two interests of photography and journalism, and dive into the diverse and wonderful world of photo-journalism.

It’s been many years since those initial days, but that same journalistic tendency to genuinely appreciate that around me and to find ways of capturing it organically has stuck with me ever since.

Flash forward to today, and I now find myself shooting everything from beauty to commercial and everything in between.

The one thing that hasn’t changed is my love for capturing things as they actually happen.
It’s why I pride myself so much on not just taking great pictures, but on creating great environments to have a really memorable shoot.

Because when clients look back at my pictures, I don’t just want them to see joy, I want them to remember it.
