“I love capturing eyes and I am inspired by people who come in and out of my life. I feel like every time I meet someone; they have an impact on what I do.”
When Mauritius born Jeff Isy moved to Canada in 2009 he found an escape and a tool of expression in photography. We had a little Q & A with the young and talented lifestyle and portraiture photographer about his beginnings, what he wants to capture in his work and the essence of a good picture.
How was photography introduced into your life?
Photography was introduced to me in High School. I was just like any other kid trying to figure out what I wanted to do when I finish high school. I took Grade 11 photography course that they were offering at school and I slowly fell in love with the process. At that time English wasn’t my first language, and it was hard for me to express myself. I found an escape in it.
Where do you get your inspiration from?
I get my inspiration from people around me. My friends, my family, teachers. People in general that come in and out of my life. I feel like every time I meet someone; they have an impact on what I do.
What is the essence of a good picture?
Do it with love & passion and nothing else.
And what do you want to capture in your work?
I love capturing eyes. I also love capturing emotions/feelings in my image. I want people to feel, connect with my images and to relate to it.
The most important thing in life…?
For me, the most important thing in life is to find love in what you do. Do what you love and be happy.
Happiness is everything.
