Dutch-born fashion and portrait photographer Evely Duis has been creative for as long as she can remember. "I don't ever want photography to be just my job," she says, "I want it to be my passion – something I can put emotion into." The Canon Ambassador honed her artistic flair completing a bachelor's degree in photography at Brussels' LUCA School of Arts, at the same time as setting up her own studio. "It taught me how to show more emotion in my photography," she says. "Not just to create a pretty picture, but how to say something more with my work."
"Saying more" is exactly what Evely has done in her latest personal project, which covers the crippling migraines that have affected her from the age of 11 and for which she now takes daily beta blockers to reduce the frequency of attacks. Having previously produced a series of photographs on the subject, featuring numerous self-portraits, she's now printed her images to create a zine about living with this condition.
Here, Evely explains how she used the Canon PIXMA PRO-200 professional grade A3+/13-inch photo printer to bring her idea to life, while printing expert and Canon Europe Product Manager for Professional Printers and Software Suhaib Hussain highlights some of the particular benefits of using the PIXMA PRO-200 for personal projects.
