Baljit Singh



Baljit Singh, a self-taught photographer based in Mississauga, Canada, seamlessly weaves her Sikh-Punjabi heritage into a vibrant tapestry of work that transcends geographical boundaries. Her photography serves as a powerful storyteller, breaking taboos and exploring themes of nostalgia, immigration, and social issues within the community. 

Grounded in authentic documentation, Baljit's approach invites viewers to witness the raw, natural and at times the re-imagined selves of her subjects, spanning a spectrum from glossy editorials to intimate documentaries. In line with this philosophy, she co-founded the creative agency The Kollective, which aims to amplify the voices of underrepresented artists and connect them with opportunities to help grow their businesses. 

As a versatile artist, she extends her talents to video work, graphic design, and editing, drawing inspiration from old family albums and stories of resilience from her community. With global recognition from exhibitions and features in publications like Vogue, Elle, and FLARE, Baljit provides a captivating glimpse into the diverse narratives of the South Asian experience.


Daryna Myroshnichenko



My name is Daryna Myroshnichenko. Born and raised in Ukraine, but have lived in Toronto since 2017. I have done photoshoots for over 9 years, I really love it so it feels like I’ve been doing it all my life. I get inspired by capturing real emotions and life stories into an image where the warm memories can be kept forever. 

Over the past 2 years, I have worked with Canadian and global brands such as Samsung, Barbie, Lancome, 7th HEAVEN, GoodLife Fitness, I Love Wellness, Georgio Armani, and many more. 

In 2017, after I moved to Canada, Henry's was the first store where I bought my favorite lens, the Canon 24 1.4. For many years, I searched for my shooting style and tried myself in different genres! Now I can confidently say that my favorite types of photography are Branding, Fashion, Portrait, and Maternity. I love working with strong business - women who fill me with their energy. 5 months ago, I opened a photo studio - Icon Studio Space! It was my big dream to have my own studio for more than 3 years.

This studio is like a labor of love for me. It's the result of my deep passion for photography and my dedication to providing everyone with the best place to express their creativity. At Icon Studio Space, clients can experience the magic of photography, where ideas turn into reality, and we capture unforgettable moments. The studio is equipped with amazing photography equipment, cool lights, and various backdrops to suit different photo needs. Whether it's taking pictures of people, products, fashion items, or anything creative, I'm confident that this studio will make the photography experience awesome.

I want to express a big thank you to all of you who have supported me and provided me with opportunities. My clients, friends, and family have been my rocks during this journey.
