Bio and Portfolio - CAPA 1st Vice-President

Internationally multi-awarded Photographer and Digital Creative, acclaiming the distinction of Master of Light (Montenegro MoL), Shiree Jetha, known as Photographer At Heart, is a Lifetime Diamond & Master level Photographer. She has exhibited in North America and Europe, with regular installations in Toronto.

As a photojournalist, Shiree’s oeuvre of work, is centric on travel and candid street (including environmental portraiture), action-sport, visual documentary multimedia like photo essays, short docs, time lapsing and cinemagraphs, as well as minimalistic architectural. As a lens-based surreal artist, her passion, is in the genre of creative altered-reality compositing. She implements her signature style, as she likes to call it ‘artography’ – where art techniques meet her photographs in the grand suite of Adobe. Her cross-platforming technique results in thoughtfully executed narratives, in fantasy and whimsical ways, with undertones of her eclectic avant-garde personality.

She travels to various worldwide locales, both mainstream and remote, the latter being her preference. She has lived in 6 countries and traveled to over 100. Her most memorable are exploring 30,000 km of the Himalayas from North India to Tibet, including Mount Everest, the Kingdom of Tonga, Samoa, and Papua New Guinea remain close to her heart.
