The Window Banner - Middelkoop

Kaleigh Middelkoop, Second Year Photography Student, is an aspiring photographer from Newfoundland who moved to Ottawa to follow her dreams by attending Algonquin College for Photography.

In 2010 she had a winning image in the Junior Visual Arts division of the Newfoundland & Labrador Arts and Letters Awards. She has a strong interest in portraiture and fashion photography, as she thinks that a photograph is one of the most natural and gratifying forms of expression.

Kaleigh believes that every image is an opportunity to tell a story or convey an emotion and is willing to go that extra mile to get the image she has in mind. She hopes to pursue portraiture and create beautiful and striking images that capture the essence of the subject.
