With a career spanning more than a decade, Trevor Godinho is an internationally recognized artist and published photographer, his work gracing the pages of Vogue Italia, Elle Canada, Men’s Health Australia, Sports Illustrated, Forbes, Playboy France & USA, FHM France & India, and much more.

His skill, vision, and passion for his art have led him to travel and establish a reputation in Toronto, New York City, Miami, Los Angeles, London, Milano, and Perth – putting him and his camera in front of notable personalities and Hollywood’s leading men and women. In 2017, Trevor was named the Canadian brand ambassador to Elinchrom Limited (based out of Switzerland).

In addition to photography, having graduated from the University of Toronto with an Honours Bachelor of Arts degree, Trevor’s creative range also includes painting, sculpture, and design. His mastery of these disciplines has led to his work being exhibited at Coldstream Fine Art and the Gardiner Museum in Toronto.

Trevor continues to mentor the next generation of aspiring photographers and artists, who he hopes will continue to tell human interest stories with vision and expressiveness. Trevor is an active supporter of both local and international charities, including NATO Association of Canada, Jays Care Foundation, U For Change, Artscape, and Big Blue Ocean Cleanup.

Trevor currently resides in Toronto, Canada. 

We would all love to have 12-24 hours with a subject in the idea shooting situations but that rarely ever happens. Capturing portraits is all about the right moment and making use of your time with the subject. In my talk I will dive in to my process of capturing some of Hollywood’s well known faces, while giving you a bit of background on my journey and where I am aiming to go.

As we now all face ever challenging times within our new normals of social and physical distancing, and self-isolation due to COVID-19 coronavirus, it is with sincere regret that we must inform you of our Capture Oakville Planning Committee's decision to cancel the 14th Edition of Capture Oakville Photography Competition, originally scheduled on Friday, April 24, 2020.

We realize that many of our Member photographers have gone to much time and expense to enter and participate in our 14th Competition.  While nothing has been confirmed, the Committee is currently discussing a number of options for hosting a scaled-down version of our event at a later date in 2020.

We hope you will join us on at a date to be determined as we announce the winners of our 2020 Capture Oakville Competition.
 

I trust that you understand and support the above decisions.  If you have any questions, please feel free to correspond with me directly.

Many thanks for your ongoing support of our Committee, and our Capture Oakville Event.

Be Safe; Cheers, Bernie
