About Me


I was born in Thunder Bay, Ontario but ended up in the prairies, which I would later discover some of my ancestors also settled here made a name for themselves. Pioneers Reverend George McDougall and his sons and John C. McDougall and David McDougall.

I’ve always loved photography, and when I was young I looked at old photos and imagined a world in black & white. Growing up I used disposable cameras like most casual users of my generation. I actually didn’t get serious about taking photos until I was in my twenties, and my first one was a Fuji Finepix S3100. A 4 megapixel bridge model circa 2004. I used that camera for events in an independent magazine I published at the time.

My first serious camera was a Canon Rebel XSi, and I began reading, watching and listening to everything I could about the art of photography. After a few years though, I realized the best way to learn about the fundamentals was to learn photography from its roots, to shoot film. Just like learning about my ancestors, I wanted to study a cameras ancestors.

I consider myself a lifelong student of photography and enjoy both digital and analog formats.

Contact/Social Media

If you have any questions about my work rates, or fine art, any of these contact methods will work just fine.

Instagram: IG is probably one of the more casual ways to get a hold of me if you’re looking to just say hi or ask a quick question. @azrielknight

Twitter: Twitter is a great way to stay informed on whatever I’m working on at the moment. If you turn on notifications I promise you wont be bombarded with a dozen random tweets per day. @azrielknight

YouTube: I used to be quite active on YT, but am currently on what I call a “long term absence” while I focus on my professional work. Still, there are a lot of videos still active to entertain. Videos about vintage cameras, first impressions on film and film cameras, and some real life photography tips.

E-Mail: If you’re interested in hiring me or have something more long winded you’d like to get out e-mail me! me@azriel.ca
