Tdot Shots presents the Five Questions Interview with Jeff Giller
Originally published May 18, 2019
Who are you?
My name is Jeff Giller, I’m 38 and I live in a little town two hours west of Toronto called Stratford, known for its Shakespearean theatre. I’m a software engineer during my adulting time, and on my own time I do photography, mostly as a hobby, but I do occasionally take on jobs on the side.
How did you get started in photography?
I started in the business in 2003 as a videographer. I did weddings and freeride/downhill mountain biking videos with my friends. I switched to still photography in 2008, and was mentored by one of my best friends at the time @mattsvai who’s now an architect based in Toronto.
What do you like to shoot and where?
I enjoy the outdoors, adventuring and shooting around South Western Ontario. I’m particularly passionate about showing my fellow Canadians that Ontario is not as boring as they might believe.
What gear do you use?
Canon 6D Mark 2
Canon 16-35mm F4L IS
Canon 70-200mm F4L
Sigma ART 35mm 1.4
Sigma ART 85mm 1.4
Manfrotto Carbon Fibre Tripod
