Collateral Photography

"A collection of true talent, surrounded by the right circumstances and opportunities, allows the collateral of the situation to create something unique.  Planning can only bring you to the edge, because the collateral of all these elements allows the unexpected to flourish."

Spencer Robertson

After discovering a need for creativity and self-determination in his career, Spencer shifted from an engineering program to Vancouver’s Langara College Professional Photo Imaging Program.  Upon graduation, with a post-graduate scholarship for 'Best Produced Portfolio', he strove to develop his ability to 'see' by traveling extensively through the world; adventures facilitated by working as a forensic photo lab technician, industrial medic, cruiseship photographer, and lifeguard.  These experiences have provided him with a unique skill set. 

After shooting in Vancouver, Spencer relocated to Toronto to leverage the larger commercial photography market. 

He is simultaneously growing his career as a respected commercial photographer while developing professional assistant relationships with established photographers and cinematographers. 

 

"Spencer is a true professional. He helped me to feel relaxed and comfortable during the shoot, and the end product far surpassed what I had hoped for. Thank you!"
