My name is Aldona B and I work with a variety of clients and focus on a few things instead of just one. These include marketing and communications, branding, public relations, social media, editorial/styling and photography – which in a weird way, do come together and work cohesively to allow me to create work that I’m extremely proud of.
After attending post-secondary for journalism and photography, I decided to venture out as a freelance artist to expand and enrich my portfolio. After a few years of art shows and working as a writer and photographer, I accepted my first position as a full-time publicist in 2009 with Alberta Theatre Projects.
While working as a publicist, I continued with my other passions, and my love of fashion and photography collided together and led me to become the Street Style Huntress, where I photograph stylish people of Calgary for getdown.ca, and previously contributed to Swerve Magazine and 17thave.ca. You can see more of my work as the Street Style Huntress HERE.
I’ve also been styling and working within fashion in various capacities, including with editorial contributions to Avenue Magazine, and working with individual clients on their styling and fashion needs, including personal shopping and styling for events.
Publicity naturally led me to Marketing and Communications, where I created content for print and online materials, got back into graphic design and advertising, and creating marketing collateral, and I’m still doing it now! My social media contributions and participation also went through the roof at this time and continues to be a big part of the work that I do.
With my natural entrepreneurial spirit, I expanded my already flourishing freelance business and went full-time. I’m now fortunate and delighted to be working as a publicist with various local theatre companies, helping new businesses brand and market their companies, and taking photos of stunning people in Calgary and beyond, whether it’s at a wedding, portrait session or event.
Photography: Portraits, actor and model head shots, families, special events, the performing arts, and weddings. I’ve has had the immense pleasure of working with clients that range from musicians and models, to my best friend’s newborn.
Marketing/Publicity: My communications work includes publicity and marketing for various theatre companies, entrepreneurs and local businesses.
Writing: I’m a published freelance writer specializing in fashion and lifestyle, and my work has been featured in magazines, in newspapers and online. I’m a content writer for websites, newsletters, blogs and marketing content.
Styling: After many years of styling and personal shopping with private clients, working within the retail industry, writing editorial fashion stories and capturing street style, I also offer my styling services to the masses. From a closet refresh, to shopping for your next big event, my styling services will take your fashion experience to the next level.
No matter what the medium, my goal is to capture and share your unique story – whether it’s through a photograph, public relations, an advertisement, social media, or through visual and written content on your website – or The Whole Package, if you so desire!
