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.
