‘People move me, they inspire me, photography is my way to tell their stories.’
‘Liv is more than an excellent photographer; she is a collaborator, an activist and a teller of stories more compelling than a one hour documentary and more visually stunning than a Turner prize. Her enthusiasm, humility and dedication to her subject matter has given us a resource which speaks volumes about our work in a way which captures the imagination and the heart of the viewer.’
Jane Carter, Coaching for Hope
Liv became a photographer in 2003 after graduating from the University of Leeds, U.K., in Psychology, and working in documentary research and photographic publishing. She studied under Paul Ellis at Photofusion, London, U.K., and assisted a number of photographers including first assistant to Laurence Dutton for three years. Seeing photography as a powerful means to communicate people’s stories in an authentic and compassionate way, Liv developed her own photographic practice specialising in portraiture and documentary photography. Liv balances independent projects with commissions from charities, NGOs, commercial clients and private individuals.
Liv runs Studio De Grand-Pré collective from Montreal with her husband and filmmaker, Jean-Philippe Tremblay, and their little boy, Janou.
