Vancouver, Toronto, Hamilton and now to the County…

Rae studied photography and graphic design at Emily Carr College of Art and Design in Vancouver B.C. She dropped out after three years to go skydiving. Her travels took her to London England, Calgary, Edmonton and Toronto.

Then, in 2004 and before the trend, Rae bought a house and moved to Hamilton, Ontario starting her own website design and photography business. Working closely with small business throughout the region, she returned to her photography roots and incorporated her unique eye into each website.

Her clients included five of Hamilton’s Business Improvement Areas, among other clients, and her work garnered two nominations and an Honorary Mention at the Hamilton Tourism Awards.  A brief list of clients includes:

  • Ottawa Street Business Improvement Area
  • Concession Street Business Improvement Area
  • Hamilton International Village Business Improvement Area
  • Kleinburg Village Business Improvement Association
  • Ancaster Heritage Village Business Improvement Area
  • Barton Village Business Improvement Area
  • The Métis Women’s Circle
  • Government of Canada Discovery Centre
  • City of Hamilton Nash Jackson House

As the business grew, she decided to move full time into photography, offering staff, product, portrait and event photography. The website company was sold and Rae set up her new business, lumaRae Photography, in a converted industrial building in Hamilton, specializing in in-studio and on-site photography for small business and independent business people.

Then in 2020, before the world went crazy with the pandemic, she started looking for a smaller community.

Rae’s photography studio is now located in Picton, Prince Edward County.

PLEASE NOTE: lumaRae Photography is in the process of moving overseas, so not accepting work currently. This site will be updated with the new information when finalized. I can be reached now and into the future through email. Thank you to all my Canadian clients for the work and the laughter.
