Hello. My name is Karyn Lee, and I am both a photographer and a videographer.
I love telling stories – and for many years, I did this through still images and photography. As a photographer, I joined Professional Photographers of Canada, became accredited, and in 2016, earned my Craftsman of Photographic Arts designation. Most recently, I received my Master of Photographic Arts Designation in February 2018. It seemed silly to have all this amazing equipment with 4K video capabilities, and to never utilize it.
I decided to experiment and play, and discovered a whole new dimension to story-telling. There are many similarities between video and stills, but technically speaking there are some differences I quickly became aware of.
I found as a photographer, I ended up more in the background, observing. However, as a cinematographer, while still in the background I felt like I was more engaged with the scene.
As a natural extension to photography, I opened Rocket Pop Film Studio as a way to really enhance the experience for my customers – as someone who can come in and shoot both stills and video, both for private projects and commercial clients.
Not only was my shooting experience changed, so too was my editing experience. While all images in a set are linked, there is a different vision required for piecing together video clips that really changes how you view a wedding day or commercial project.
In short, videography opened up a whole new exciting world for me!
Let’s Get Personal
I love horses, and dogs, and cats, and guinea pigs. I love my daughter Audrey. My husband Cody is my best friend. I don’t like to work out, but I love taking hikes. Romantic comedies are super predictable, and love them anyway. Benedict Cumberbatch is the best, and Game of Thrones is brilliant.
I am LOUD! I love the energy of outgoing people. I love the quite peace of introverts. I believe the best thing a person can be is kind. I am curious, I am focused, and I’m hilarious (if you like that sort of dry humour).
I can send a “few texts” to a friend throughout the day, and suddenly realize I’ve written a novella. I wish I could dance. I have a vivid imagination, and sometimes I don’t explain myself very clearly. I don’t embarrass easily, which is great because I am the most uncoordinated person I know.
To date, I have eaten 14 popsicles in the making of videos and images of this site.
