Courtney Reader
Fashion & Pinup Photographer
Toronto, Ontario, Canada

As seen in Tassel Twirl magazine and Vintage Affair magazine.

A Canadian student and amateur photographer who values creativity and personal standard for high-quality photography and fashion photography.

Hard-working and unique, I’ve been photographing and editing all my work for over 5 years, collaborating with models and creative individuals on mid-century and contemporary inspired themes. With over 7 years of Photoshop experience and 5 behind the lens, I take each every photo seriously and every photo shoot as an adventure.

With imagery, and especially the fashion + pinup culture, being so widely accessible and numerous in the modern era, it is immensely important for me to have forward-thinking influences and to create fresh, new, fine art photography. Being original while staying iconic and vintage-inspired is the basis for the morals of my work.

Much of my photography experience has come from collaborative shoots with models, my partner in crime FrannyPanties, professional head shots, product photography, and numerous work on events and event photo booths. I also regularly maintain a social media presence for my commercial and personal work.

My most recent publication is in the summer issue for Vinttage Affair Magazine and I’ve been feature on the front page of PhotoVogue Italia. In 2010 and 2013 I was awarded the Captivate Durham Region Excellence in Digital Art award for two design/photo manipulation pieces. With 2013 and 2014, I earned the Senior Art Excellence award for grades 11 and 12 art courses for having the highest final mark. Also featured in the McLaughlin art gallery in 2012 with a traditional media piece.

Although enamored with the past, I plan for the future to continue into post-secondary in Visual Merchandising. This is to gain a further understanding of the industry and to cultivate knowledge on a medium I’m already heavily interested in, putting emphasis on my dedication to fashion photography.
