Ingrid Forster is a Toronto-based documentary photographer, visual storyteller, and artist. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Concordia University, a Master of Arts in Photographic Preservation and Collections Management from Ryerson University and recently completed a second Masters degree in Digital Media.
Ingrid has been making images since she was old enough to hold a camera and is proficient in both film and digital photography, as well as historical photographic processes. Her personal work explores themes such as place, culture, community, memory, and the natural environment. She also enjoys documenting her travels, encounters, and capturing the nuances of light.
An enthusiastic and experienced photography educator, Ingrid enjoys sharing her knowledge on the creative and technical aspects of the medium. She is super nerdy about the history of photography, but equally enthusiastic about pondering its current state.
When she isn't taking photographs, Ingrid can be found reading, writing, hiking, drinking coffee, and listening to old country tunes.
Ingrid is passionate about visual storytelling and approaches commissioned work with great attention to detail, creativity, and a discerning eye for light. Currently accepting commissions for documentary, editorial, travel, portrait photography, and storytelling/branding projects for small businesses and entrepreneurs.
