WE CANADA Champions.
Those people who are putting their face and their passion behind this amazing cause. First up is Agam Darshi, Having briefly met Agam at the WE CANADA campaign launch back in November, i had the pleasure of meeting her again for some portrait photos for the WE CANADA website. The shoot took place at her beautiful apartment in Vancouver with it’s breath taking views over the city and the surrounding sea and mountains.
Agam is a rising star in the Vancouver Film Industry. Agam booked her very first audition for the recurring role of Hemma on “Renegade Press.Com”. Since then she has landed substantial roles in “L-Word” (Showtime), CBC’s “49th and Main”, “Zixx Level II” (USA Cartoon Network, YTV), “Haunting on Sorority Row” (Lifetime) alongside Gossip Girl Leighton Meester and “Playing for Keeps” with Emmy award winner Jennifer Finnigan.
Agam Darshi has also earned roles on Final Destination 3, Supernatural, Stargate Atlantis, Tru-Calling, Snakes on a Plane, Criminal Minds and Dead Zone.
Recently Agam can be seen playing the kick-ass tough girl Kate Freelander in the hit Scyfy show “Sanctuary”. Later this year you can also see her in Roland Emmerich’s upcoming blockbuster feature film “2012″.
Agam is also a talented writer/filmmaker and recently finished production on her short film “Bollywood Beckons”. Born in England and raised all over Canada, Agam grew up with a deep love for the arts.
This amazing personality and confidence in front of the camera made for a great photo shoot.
Geek Section: These shots were done using a super simple set up of one flash unit with a 24″ beauty dish just to the right of me. The shot settings were f 2.8, 1/100s at ISO 100. I used the Canon 24-70 f2.8 lens, although i do prefer the 70-200 f2.8 the chosen spot for the photo would allow it. Minor retouches included softening the flash highlights and a slight vignetting.
