Caileigh Scott: "No good effort comes without intense effort"



One of the likeable things about acting is that it isn’t like any other profession. It’s a job where one can go in and do something different each time while recreating themselves every day. They’re able to meticulously absorb personalities from script and translate it to screen or stage by adding their own familiarities between the similarities. It’s a talent not everyone can easily achieve or slip into but Caileigh Scott is an actor proving her worth in Tinseltown.
It’s been known that the best acting is instinctive. It’s not intellectual or mechanical but something that should come off natural. For Scott, being in that world seems innate as she hails from a family of artists and supporters of the arts. As an only child growing up, she tells me how blessed she is with such a supportive family around her. “I’ve certainly never had to face the stern looks around the Thanksgiving dinner table, asking, ‘So when are you going to give up this acting thing and become a lawyer?’” she quips.

Isha Sharma: Through the Eyes of a Photographer



Photography isn’t just the art of observation. It’s a way of touching, feeling and loving in some form while finding fascinating things in an ordinary situation. Full awareness of what makes a good photograph is essential to the process because what you have caught on film is captured forever and leaves quite the impression of a voice unspoken. One photographer who is making waves through her unique style is Isha Sharma of Isha Sharma Photography.

Growing up in India and later moving to Canada, 24 year-old Sharma developed her love for photography after her father gifted her with a Polaroid i-Zone Instant Sticker camera at the age of 13. It was then that the young girl got into experimental photography, diving deep into a world of not just film reel but emotion and a way of capturing beauty found in an inimitable eye.

“I soon realized that I didn’t just want to take pictures of my friends and family and stick them on my locker,” she smiles. “I started experimenting with it and started taking more artistic pictures and realized how much I loved it.”
