Alison Boulier is a woman on a mission, capturing life as she sees it, one impactful shot at a time. If you live in Vancouver, odds are she has taken your photo. She has a distinct, unpretentious style of shooting and has a true sense of what it means to be a photographer that is beyond her years.
Here’s what you should know about this North Vancouver creative:
7 People are her major source of inspo
Being able to establish a real connection with whoever she’s shooting, is important in order for Alison to produce images that are honest and that will leave a lasting impression.
6 The West End is her favorite backdrop
With a mix of residential buildings and brick and mortar, a vibrant village, immediate access to the beach and world-renowned Stanley Park, it’s no surprise Alison loves exploring and showcasing the West End and all its hidden gems.

5 Pisces, power!
Deep and intuitive, people born under the Pisces sign, tend to have a natural ability for all things creative – from photographers to marketing creatives, so it’s no surprise that Alison is a Pisces herself!
Some famous Pisces creatives include Rihanna, Steve Jobs, and Spike Lee.
4 Her favourite Vancouver restaurant is a vegan restaurant
A self-taught home chef and vegetarian (watch her Instagram stories for some mouth-watering recipes), when she’s not cooking at home, Alison gravitates towards The Acorn on Main Street. She’s a big fan of how artistically the dishes are put together and it helps that the food tastes as good as it looks.
3 Famous people have been some of her subjects
Lil Pump, A$AP Ferg, and Riverdale’s KJ Apa are just a few on her celebrity roster.
2 She has three tips for taking a good photo
1. FRAME UP
2. “For the love of God, don’t cut off people’s feet”
3. Be vulnerable. “You have to let yourself be vulnerable if you expect people to be vulnerable.”
1 Success = peer respect
For Alison, it’s not always about the fame or the money. In fact, what matters most to her is recognition and respect from her fellow creatives and peers.
