In today’s Local Business Spotlight, I would like to introduce you to Valeria Mitsubata Photography, located right here in Woodbridge. The owner, Valeria, is a talented photographer specializing in natural light photography and is great at finding the perfect outdoor backdrop for that perfect photo.
We sat down for a few minutes so I could learn more about her business.
1 – What made you decide to leave the corporate world and become a professional photographer?
After 20 years in the corporate world, I decided to turn my hobby into my profession. I graduated with honours at Humber College and now, finally, I LOVE my job!! I enjoy “capturing the moment” and sharing a great photographic experience with each one of my clients.
2 – What types of photography do you specialize in and what is your favourite?
The BEST part about my job is that every shoot is different. Whether it be capturing that awesome backswing on the golf course, a cheque presentation to a charity in need, a concert in the park, or a couple getting engaged, every shoot is unique and tells its own story.
3 – You are a resident of Woodbridge, what do you love most about living here in Vaughan?
I recently had a project that involved capturing Vaughan. This project seemed simple enough when I took it on, but once I got to work, I realized just how much Vaughan had to offer. We have everything here in Vaughan. What I love most is that within 10 minutes of my home, I can go for a hike, play at a park, grab a bite, catch a movie or go shopping. Everything is right at my fingertips.
4 – What do you think are the best places in Vaughan to take great photographs?
I love shooting outdoors, and Vaughan has so many beautiful natural backdrops to choose from. Vellore Town Hall is my go to location. The beauty of the forest, the old town hall, the rustic barn, crisp white fence and mature trees. I can always land a great shot there.
