ABOUT

Maggie MacPherson is an award-winning photojournalist based in Vancouver, Canada. As an alumna of the RTA School of Media at Ryerson University in Toronto, Maggie’s education is rooted in communicating stories, ideas, and creativity through visual mediums.

Maggie recently transitioned to freelance photojournalism after working full-time for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) where she captured photography for daily news stories and features.

One of these stories awarded Maggie first place in the personality portrait category in the 2019 National Pictures of the Year (NPOY) competition for her portrayal of a man living in a homeless camp in Vancouver. 

Her freelance client work includes portraiture and commercial photography which can be seen in various publications including a front-page photo for the popular Vancouver news and entertainment paper, The Georgia Straight.

Photo series created by Maggie are collaborative in nature and often live in various mediums.

In 2016, she teamed up with poet and creative director Katie Bishop to create “Dichotomies” which exhibited at the Beaumont Art Gallery and was subsequently turned into a self-published book and online experience. In 2018, she was commissioned by acclaimed opera singer and artistic director, Heather Pawsey, to create a printed photo series to accompany her on stage during the multimedia a capella show, “Unheard”. An online version of the series can be found here. Also in 2018, international music photographer Céline Pinget collaborated with Maggie on a series of photos to be on display during Sass the Patriarchy, a traveling event series that empowers gender diversity in the music industry. The series featuring local female musicians can also be found online here.
