SHARON BLANCE

Sharon grew up in Canada and has been creating pictures for as long as she can remember.

Her first love was painting, but a school project to make a pinhole camera out of a shoebox sparked a lifelong fascination with the captured image.

After stints living in both London and New Zealand, Sharon currently resides in Melbourne, Australia and shoots a variety of commercial and editorial imagery with a focus on people and places.

Her commercial work can be seen at Image Workshop, where she works collaboratively with award-winning photographer and her creative partner-in-crime Brence Coghill.

An aficionado of the classics, she’s a sucker for retro movies and Bugs Bunny cartoons, and prefers Star Trek over Star Wars.

Sharon thrives on variety, has two up-to-date passports, and travels as often as possible.
