About Me

Hiello!   I am Michele Thompson and  thank you for stopping by!  Although born and raised in Halifax, Nova Scotia,   I am  currently in Toronto and am the photographer behind “Magpie’n’Moo Photography."   I admit it may sound like a rather  odd blended name but  Its actually  a blend of two nicknames given to me by my family:   " Magpie" and "Moo"

I started photography initially as a way to help me with my anxiety but quickly developed a passion for capturing the little details of nature and cityscapes that I see in my daily life at home or when travelling. 

I started sharing my photos on Instagram @magpie_n_moo (https://www.instagram.com/magpie_n_moo/)  in September 2017.  Through the pairing of my photos with words  I wanted  to be able to  evoke an emotion or memory or to tell a story whatever it may be.     Through that  platform I am grateful to have gained and to have   met many wonderful followers, friends and fellow artists these last few years and continue to do!

Upon the suggestion and support of a few of my friends and family, I decided to launch a website to share my images and voila, Magpie’n’Moo Photography was born in March 2019 and has been a work in progress.    Recently I have added a new section where  I can share some of my simple "no bells and whistle" photography tips I have learned over the years with the purpose of providing basic practical guidance for the beginner to intermediate photographer.

I am pleased to announce that I have teamed up with Kase Filters Canada to become an official Pro Partner.  Since purchasing a professional kit of the Kase Wolverine Magnetic Filters I became hooked.  I hadn't used filters as much as I do now purely because they are so portable, 

incredibly easy and efficient to put on and take off in almost any weather condition with fantastic results.  They have allowed me to take my photography to a whole new level.I would be delighted if you can take a look through my website and if any prints interest you, I would be most honored if you chose them as gifts  for your friends an family or to keep for yourself to  grace your own workspace or your home.

**I will be donating a portion of the proceeds from the sales to The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA), who provide services and supports to people who are experiencing mental illness. Mental disorders affect one in four people. Having been living with one, it is a topic near and dear to my my heart! Many thanks in advance! Love Michele
