Viktoria Haack is a professional photographer whose work covers the fields of landscape, portrait, wedding, event, promotional, editorial, stock and photography education. Originally from the UK and having resided in British Columbia since 2007, she is heavily influenced by the beautiful landscapes that surround her.
