J Charlery Photography

Photography has been a passion of mine from my early teenage years. It all started when a friend loaned me her simple Kodak digital camera. I was fascinated by how I could press that shutter and instantly see the image on that small 2 inch square screen. Needless to say that I never wanted to return the camera to her. A few years later I left my hometown St Lucia and moved to Montreal. There I met a friend who owned DSLR cameras. He became my mentor and taught me the basics of photography. I became even more enthusiastic about the art and just could not put down the camera. Thankfully, I have a beautiful wife, who loves being photographed, who never refuses a practice shoot.

I’ve had my share of difficulties as well. Never will I forget that day I walked home to find that all my photography gear had been stolen. For a while it seemed like that was the end of my photography journey. But after a few weeks of grieving and some long pep talks from great friends and clients, I’m back and ready to capture your outstanding portrait to hang in your home.

Kerlange Lacombe

Born in Haiti in the middle class, I started modeling at the age of 11 from my old school in Haiti. I have always wanted to do modelling as a professional. Once arrived in Canada, my moto didn’t change. I kept reminding myself that: "I won’t give up on my dream until it comes true". In 2011, I met a staff who was planning a show for the Black History month at La Cité college and I was chosen to modelling for them. I have also modeled with some other companies such as the Association Excelsior Culturelle et Spirituelle (Ottawa 2012), Mannequin direct (Montreal 2013), De La Cruz (Ottawa 2014), Erikal Communications (Ottawa, 2015), Genevieve Poitras (Ottawa, 2016). I started last summer for never give up like a model, where I talked to Marshall about my dream to be a Top Model. And, I Thank God first of all for EVERYTHING, Thank you Mom "Marie Claire Noreska" to be there for me, My Dad "Jackson Lacombe".  My Support, my Motivation Marshall Celestin
