Adventuring Canada and Alberta has quickly become Jill’s way of grounding her feet over the past few years, giving a sense of appreciation for the world that we live in today. Her home is downtown in the concrete Jungle of Edmonton, but her heart resides deep in the forests and on top of the mountain summits of Alberta, where you can find Jill on the weekends while she’s not in the office, or being a community leader in the photographer world.
She started taking photos and studying photography in 2014 when she received her photography Diploma. Jill is also a passionate community leader within Edmonton by running a social media page called @instagramyeg, where her and a team of volunteers support other photography enthusiasts and professionals alike. They create opportunities for others to be recognized by, through events and sharing their photos throughout the year. Instagramyeg also partner’s with local Alberta brands, such as Lamose, to provide unique experiences where the local photographers can win some products that the amazing businesses have. Their aim is to connect people face to face, and help guide them through new phases of their photography by allowing them to ask questions at events, learn new techniques, and hone editing skills as they are ever-changing in the digital & social media world we live in.
Lamose’s values resonate with Jill, as she typically finds herself immersed in the deep forests of Alberta Mountains and on top of the summits. She says, “We must protect them, if we want them to protect us for future generations.”
