Vancity Vendor: Kirill Bordon Photography

Vancouver wedding photographer Kirill Bordon picked up his first film camera 10 years ago when he took a photography course at Langara College. That was all it took to get hooked and by looking at his images, you can see he has quite the knack for it. He found that same spark with weddings while second shooting for a fellow wedding photographer. Since then, it’s been 3 years for Kirill has in the wedding industry and he is always looking forward to capturing more special moments for Vancouver couples.

A Few Words With Kirill…

Kirill Bordon Photography Why do you choose to shoot film?
“Film simply makes me a better artist, better photographer, I love film for so many reasons, film has a very soft and romantic look, film is timeless and honest and I love the process. Some photographers only use film for their personal work but I feel for me in order to do my best work I have to shoot film for all of my work, I love weddings and I really love photographing them so why would I approach weddings any different than my personal work? So I shoot film all the time and I love it, and when I love it you will love it too! : )”

What do you have to offer for brides with lower budgets?
“Flexibility and ability to work with lower budgets!”

What sets you apart from others in the same field?
“I use film for my photography and film has very unique look.”

How would you describe your shooting and photo editing style?
“I like a documentary/photo journalistic approach during the wedding and when I have time  with a couple I will give them some directions and will try to make them feel at ease. I only use photoshop for minor color corrections and such, nothing too heavy : )”
