Born on January 29, 1977 in a city south of Taiwan, Daisy Hsieh has lived independently away from home for school since the tender age of 16. After having graduated from college in Taiwan, she moved to Brandon, Manitoba Canada
After having overcome several obstacles and life changes, including the birth of a beautiful child, Mario, she bravely decided to move to a bigger city, Toronto, to raise her son and to take on greater opportunities and challenges. As an Aquarius, Daisy was always naturally drawn to Art and Design. Hence, after some careful consideration and research, she decided to follow her passion and applied for the renowned Graphic Design Program at the International Academy of Design and Technology (IADT) back in 2005.
Once accepted into the program, to her surprise, she was instantaneously awarded a scholarship from a photoshop design image. In the class, she was one of the top 3 students. She admits it was effortless because she loved what she doing, and was ever grateful she took on this path.
Thoroughly inspired and motivated, she branched into Modeling to earn extra income. This experience empowered her and greatly contributed to her self-esteem. Soon after graduating from IADT, she worked as a Freelance Graphic Designer for awhile. While she enjoyed her work, she realized she did not have the patience to withstand long hours staring in front of a computer. Something was missing, she decided to pick up the camera and slowly and surely shift behind the lens
Her graphic design background and previous modeling experience greatly helped her develop into a Professional Photographer within a short period of time. She was determined and was already equipped with the necessary knowledge. She remembers the very first time she got to practice with a team of professionals, and felt blessed to work with an incredible team, the unexpected good results, this served a good head start to her photography career and encouraged her more so to follow her dream. Soon after, she was photographing tirelessly and endlessly, quickly expanding her photography subjects, ranging from Fashion, Beauty, Actor Headshots to Business headshots/ portrait.
To Daisy, her best rewards are instances when her business clients, actors, or just ordinary people who call themselves rather “non-photogenic” end up being astounded after seeing themselves transform into the “photogenic” individuals they never thought they could be in Daisy’s work. She consistently aspires to make her clients look as great as they can be and create images that exceed their expectations. The feeling of having achieved this is greater than no other, she says. The Testimonials section are a testament to what clients say about her.
With reasonable rates, U Create Studio offers quality service to various clients. This does not only include time spent during the photoshoot, but as well as that spent after, the processing and polishing of the images, which is often much longer than the photoshoot session.
No matter the project, the setting, or the subject, Daisy Hsieh is the photographer you have been looking for and have yet to work with. For inquiries, and to book your free consultation, call: 416-888-0329
