Hello and welcome to Sixth Sense Photo! My name is Blake Zimmerman or BZ for short. I live in Canada, work in the IT industry in the educational sector. I am a self professed geek and love the various arts to boot.
Photography is my passion. I love making photos, doing the edits and learning things and constantly trying to improve my skills. I am also working hard on giving back to those amazing people who have helped me learn, and to the community that has been open and supportive of my work. the blog portion of the site covers a lot of that project.
Over the last few years I have worked within the online mentoring platform, The Arcanum, as well as participated in the Orillia Heritage and Arts Museum Wearable Fashion Show. I"ve also instructed on multiple sessions with Daytripper Photo, as well as photobooths at both the Coldwater Steampunk Festival, and Anime North. The one thing I noticed during all of these journeys is that I love characters and stories. The Arcanum is a mix of master/apprentice style learning, with an role playing game style level system. The wearable arts show we had a theme of the Wizard of Oz, the Daytripper sessions I taught on story making, Steampunk and Anime have such amazing stories that I just love.
So that's what I'm doing. Helping to create and tell stories, to create art, and hopefully make you all apart of it!
