ABOUT ME

My name is Joan Novak. I live in Whistler, BC CANADA.

I am a Master Colourist & Hairstylist with 34 years experience.

I'm obsessed with getting the next photo. I live for creating my next shoot whether it's for me or a client! I feel that this will help to elevate your shoot as I know hair.

I own a 900 sq ft. hair salon/studio in Whistler called JoNo Hair.

The space has 5 hairstyling stations for prepping models hair & makeup.

I am an award winning hairstylist (recently photographer), which is where my fascination with studio photography began.

Whenever I did photo shoots I always thought that the person taking the pictures was some sort of a magician. I was always in awe of how they could create such amazing images! I always wanted to learn but was too intimidated. To learn technical photo taking paired with learning photoshop for editing seemed too daunting of a task for me. It felt like climbing Mt. Everest. I didn't know where to even begin "fashion" photography and beauty editing all the while living in Whistler.

In 2020 I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Breast Cancer. While I was undergoing treatment I decided that one of my regrets in life was that I let learning studio photography overwhelm me. So I decided to start after my treatments ended.  I am ALL IN!

My niche is Hair & Beauty Photography. I shoot for hairstylists, makeup & editorial beauty.

I look forward to collaborating with my clients to create beautiful images.
