Behind the Lens

Boozhoo Aanii, my name is Shawn Johnston (They/Them) and I'm a Two Spirit Anishinaabe originally from Couchiching First Nation located on Treaty #3 territory. I currently reside on Deshkan Ziibi territory. 

I bought my first DSLR just a few days before leaving for Aotearoa (NZ). The person behind the counter said to me "You're leaving for overseas and you're just buying this camera?" My reply "I'll figure it out". 

Five years later and I am still in love with photography. It allows me to capture moments, see the world, and meet some new friends along the way. Photography has opened many doors for me. 

After a year of travel, I wanted to take my photography to the next level so I decided to go back to school. I'm currently in my first year of the Photography program at Fanshawe College in London, ON.

Thank you for visiting my site.
