Portrait of a Photographer Series #2 – Margaret Malandrucculo
Originally from Toronto, Canada, Margaret is an established photographer and music video director who has been residing in Los Angeles for over a decade. We met in Toronto a few years prior to her relocating to California and kept in touch during her transition. I recall how excited she was about this move and ready to start working in LA. Primarily a location shooter Margaret prefers traveling for her shoots whenever possible. In recent years, she has found herself in Iceland, Holland, Italy, the deserts of Southern California, and of course in Canada for her music videos and photo shoots.
I thought Margaret to be a great portrait to document as she is now doing double duty as a wife and mother of a 4 yr. old son, Elliot. Her husband, Ben is a full time video editor. So there’s a lot of time management when it comes to balancing a busy career, travel and parenthood. Needless to say, Margaret has a clear focus and love for her work and family life. Dedicated, driven and hard-working. Like the proud Italian that she is!
