Photographer, camerawoman and director.
Taryn Snell's love of filmmaking led her to obtain a Bachelor of Arts degree in Film Production from the University of Cape Town, in her home country of South Africa. While completing her degree, Taryn worked at a portrait studio where she refined her skills in still photography. This valuable experience and Taryn's love of working with people ultimately led to a successful career in Canada after immigrating in 2009.
Shortly after arriving in Canada, Taryn obtained a Post Graduate Diploma in Video Editing from Humber Institute of Technology in Toronto. She interned at Tattersall Sound & Picture on the post-production of Make Your Move, under the film editor Melissa Kent.
Wanting to explore more of the country, Taryn moved to Regina and now runs her own business, freelancing as a commercial photographer, videographer and director. She has consistently freelanced for Global news as a camera operator and editor, and has worked on various television productions including assistant camera on an episode of TVO's Political Blind Date, and cinematographer on Our Community: Creative Options Regina and AMI's A New Mosaic Stadium. In her first directing role, Taryn co-directed the documentary series Making it in Saskatchewan for CityTV Saskatchewan.
In her photography career, Taryn has worked with a wide array of clientele including Hillberg & Berk, Refined Lifestyles Magazine and Golf Canada.
Whether it's stills or video, Taryn's favourite subject is people. In her spare time she loves to read a good mystery novel, listen to crime podcasts or go on adventures with her rescue mutt Maggie.
