For her whole life she was interested in photography, but she really didn’t develop a passion for it until she was 17 years old and diagnosed with cancer. From the day she was diagnosed she decided to use photography to document her experience with cancer.
The model (Suicide Girls Hopeful) and photographer Angela Butler has been creating self-portraits for five years, and working with friends and colleagues in front of their cameras for almost three years. She stresses the importance of photography for her with these words “Everything I do is photography, I don’t know what I would do if this could somehow be taken away".
Butler who graduated from Alberta College of Art + Design (ACAD) with a Bachelor of Design and a Major in Photography in 2014 has been with Phlearn.com as an intern since May of 2010, and an employee since September 2010. She brings you our weekly "Weekend Inspiration" and written interviews with many different photographers.

Pete Glogiewicz says:
"I wouldn't normally write a testimonial for a contact after such a short time. BUT having known Angela (In the digital sense) for only around 8 weeks I can honestly say she is one of the most inspirational people on my contact list. The images she produces are moving, and also clearly hold great personal meaning to her. Every time I look at her stream I find myself browsing back through it and finding images full of emotion and expression. On top of all this she has inspired me (through some light hearted abuse on twitter) to embark upon a personal project that wouldn't have come about if we hadn't have met on-line. Angela is a talented photographer, a skilled retoucher and a truly inspirational person."

"I have looked at almost all of Angela's pictures, and they blow me away to say the least. Each picture has a story behind it and so much raw emotion. Angela and her pictures are truly incredable!"
