Meet Our Photographer

Sophie Sanfaçon

Born in Québec City,  Canada, Sophie Sanfacon started scuba diving in 2004, in Australia and soon after became a cold water diver. From her first compact Canon compact A70, she is now using a Canon 5D in an Aquatica Housing with dual Ikelite strobes DS 125. Her day work brought her to Northern Quebec with the Cree Nation (2005-2008) and in Senegal (for a teaching project with the pharmacy faculty of Université Laval in 2009). She is now living on the West Coast, in  Nanaimo, BC, in her new home with the Pacific Ocean as a playground.
