I’m Jessica Charuk, the photographer and videographer behind Charuk Studios.
From an early age I had a love for art. As I grew up and it came time to decide what I wanted to study in university, I couldn’t imagine giving up my creative interests, so I chose to attend Ryerson University for Fashion Communication.
The summer after my third year in university I planned my dream trip and travelled around Europe. It was during that trip I realized I wanted to pursue photography as a career. (You can read more about that trip here.)
A year later when graduation was approaching, I was hired to work in the marketing department for a Canadian retailer. I excitedly packed up my bags and moved to Montreal to start my career in the fashion industry. It was at this job I was able to narrow down my interests and combine my knowledge of fashion with my love for photography. (You can read a little bit about my transition to a new job and city here.)
During my time in Montreal I met and worked alongside various creative entrepreneurs. I collaborated with several businesses, had photography published, and photographed new faces at Specs Model Management. I learned that my dream had always been to be creative and connect with people. I loved photography and film, but was also wildly passionate about helping creative souls achieve success in their own business.
I have since traded in the traditional 9-5 office job to pursue an entrepreneurial career path that allowed me to do just that. From there I launched Charuk Studios.
