Group Photo Director at Rogers Media
Gen has been a great asset to the photography team at Rogers over the past few years. Her knowledge of photography, photo editing and workflow management are second to none. She has an ability to roll with whatever punches were thrown her way, and is as flexible as they come. She assisted greatly in the quality control of the photography for the Canadian Tire Wow Guide, including clipping, colour correcting and retouching images where needed. In addition, managed multiple lists between our team, merchandise managers on our client side and outside vendors where needed. I would recommend Gen for any full-time or freelance work in the future!

She is an excellent assistant and a skilled retoucher. She easily takes on administrative tasks as well as being a creative problem solver. Genia is an asset to any team and I highly recommend her!
Editor-In-Chief at BLARE
Reliable, creative and driven, Gen is an incredibly valuable asset to BLARE. Her motivated personality and artistic sense has given her the ability to adapt as a photographer in various environments, showing consistent improvement and inventive skills. While similar professionals focus on quality, Gen fixates on originality, exposing detail and clashing colour with the inner emotions of performers which is a trait that should not be overlooked. Add in her love for warm weather/the outdoors, and she's a young talent regenerating the art behind still photos!
