Assistant & Retoucher

Maryn Devine started at HoC back in 2017 when she was just an interning student. She has since gone on to graduate from her photography program with honours, was awarded Best Portfolio in her graduating class, and has become an emerging talent and invaluable asset to our team in Ottawa. We call Maryn our “rockstar”, not only because of her love of 70’s rock n’ roll, but also because she kicks butt.
