Hugo Mailhot Photography
Oh boy, talking about myself. Bla bla bla but....
Hello My Name is Hugo Mailhot
I live in Nanaimo, on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. Born and Raised in a very French Canadian family in the Province of Quebec, I eventually found my way to Western Canada with a few stops along the way (Alberta and Nova Scotia were each home for a little while).
I had to learn English and try to find work. I started working in Hotels, and I worked my way up from dishwasher to eventually an executive position working mainly in the Conference area, leading teams to manage many corporate clients, Private events, Celebrities, Heads of State, US president, and even her Majesty the Queen of England. To this day I still work in that field.
One Day a few years ago I got the idea to purchase a good camera. I did my research well and educated myself about photography. There I found a passion that keeps me motivate, challenged and rewarded. My goal is simple, keep getting better.
I have since purchase more equipment, took many online courses which helped greatly. I love it! One day someone even hired me to take photos of them, then another, and another. I did some commercial shots to. Then someone asked me to take photos at their wedding, then another....
With all that I also have 3 boys, 13, 11, and a 5 months old baby. I love to run, I wish I could run more but I do what I can. I'm also learning how to play the guitar, I practice that every day. I also love to watch my kids play hockey and for most of the year that consumes my time on the weekends. I often take photos of the kids playing and try to catch that special goal or move, the parents love it and that's fun to do, I know many of the appreciate so I do it as much as I have time to.
I love the outdoors and live in a beautiful place, so I feel very lucky to be able to take beautiful photos of all the places I go to. These photos, I like to share with as many people as possible so thank you for the visit!
Well this is me. Keep coming back for more photos.
