This is the last session of my Body Love Photo Project, that I have been doing in collaboration with the Love Your Body Summit that will take place on February 6th 2016 in Port Moody, and what a way to finish with a bang!
It’s not ever day you get to photograph a Juno-nominated musician, and that is exactly part of who Jodi Proznick is! She is a bassist, composer, bandleader, and educator who has earned a reputation as one of Canada’s finest jazz artists. So pretty cool, not to mention I love stand up bass guitars so I was instantly in awe of the beautiful instrument she brought along to the shoot.
But that is just part of who she is, and in the short time we spent together I found out she is a mother, a passionate arts educator and someone that is quite in tune (no pun intended) with herself, which I really admire. When I read her responses to our questions it made me even more glad that I had the chance to work with her, and I won’t lie I shed a tear or two when I read them. She truly is an amazing human being!
Here is our interview and photo’s from her session. Jodi thank you so much for taking the time to be part of our project! Such a delight to work with.
