About Shutter Owl

Naomi Woodman is the Creative Director behind Shutter Owl Photography.  Her love of photography started in high school when she worked part time developing film.  After high school she left her small town to study Design Foundations and then Fashion Design at George Brown.  After working in Toronto as a Pattern Cutter, she moved back to her small town to start a family. Becoming a mother inspired Naomi creatively and made her excited to pick up her camera.  Everyday she would rock her babies to sleep and ask herself, What would I do if I could do anything?  The answer kept coming back photographer.  When her youngest son started kindergarten, she used this as her opportunity to study Digital Photography and Imaging.  Her dedication to her work was evident as she excelled at Georgian College, winning First Place in the Scholarship show while balancing two boys, full-time studies, and work.  Using her background in Fashion Design as a foundation for her Photography, she brings a creative point of view you will not find anywhere else.
