About Me

IMG_8762

Hi there!

I’m Nila, a Toronto-based photographer serving the GTA and beyond.

The natural world is my biggest inspiration – the imperfect perfection of every flower, the swaying of willow tree branches, the wings of birds flapping elegantly as they soar through the sky… It leaves me speechless. Wildlife and Environmental Conservation is a cause that is deeply important to me.

When I first started out in photography, I gravitated towards fashion due to the creative freedom that came with styling photoshoots. It also introduced me to incredible designers, models and other creatives in the industry. However, as an environmentalist, I can’t ignore the reality of fast fashion — It’s is one of the biggest pollutants on Earth. For this reason, I’ve decided to put my focus towards helping ethical fashion brands and businesses who are striving to create products that benefit the planet.

When I’m not behind a camera, you can find me working at my day job as a social media marketing coordinator and visual storyteller at an environmental non-profit, hiking the trails in and around the GTA, or cuddled up in bed with Netflix and ice cream. 🙂
