Freestone Spirit Photography
Photographers Mark and Sarah Coffey met while canoeing and discovered their shared passions: photography and the environment. Mark, the creative director and principle photographer of Freestone Spirit Photography, uses his love of the wilderness to shape his work as an artist—even naming his studio after a freestone river. Through their photography—which they characterize, recalling the river, as “ever-changing and maturing, but still young at heart”—Mark and Laura aim to tell the story of their clients’ lives, working together to put them at ease and capture love, emotion, and character.
Through the educational arm of the studio, Kelowna Photography Workshops, Mark moulds aspiring artists through one-hour classes and weekend-long workshops. After learning the basics of composition and exposure control, students move on to the study of natural light and framing environmental portraits. Mark teaches students to craft images that tell stories of the natural world like otters playing in a stream or mountain goats arguing over insurance claims.
