Hi! I’m Gail.
I’m a food and travel photographer born and raised in rainy but beautiful Vancouver, BC.
My first and foremost passion is photography, stemming from a lifelong need to create from my visual brain and late nights playing with Photoshop as a teenager. You read that right – some people stay up partying, I stayed up to Photoshop.
I fell in love with food blogs long ago when I needed inspiration for plant-based meals. I started a personal and very embarrassing vegetarian food blog in 2008, where I discovered the blogging community (in the good old days of the now-discontinued Google Reader!). Eventually, I rid myself of all food labels and just focused on eating what made me happy, which happened to be dessert, of course. I’m a self-taught, weekend baker with an affinity for sweet things.
When I’m not busy taking photos of food next to the little window in my living room, you can find me snuggled up on the couch as a blanket burrito and eating either a tub of ice cream or a bowl of frozen mangoes.
I love serving the world by sharing creative inspiration through photos and recipes and supporting the local food scene in Vancouver and eating my way through cities on my travels.
More about me:
I have a BSc. in Biology with an focus on Cell Biology. But only because that’s the area I thought would get me a job. My natural inclination was towards Ecology and Zoology.
Ironically, I didn’t end up with a science-related job at all! If I were to do it all over again, I would probably be a wildlife photographer instead. Or I would have pursued food photography earlier.
Even more about me:
- My favourite animals are bunnies, whales, sloths (in that order)
- I’m a huge Harry Potter fan. I grew up reading the books and it was and is such an important part of my life. Test me on HP trivia!
- My favourite food is fruit. If you think that’s lame, then my second favourite is sushi.
- I love watching Earth and animal documentaries. Earth is honestly so beautiful, those shows make me cry!
- I could sleep for 14 hours a day if I didn’t have any life obligations.
