I started photography back in the ealy 1970's after joining the Royal Navy, I went on a 9 month deployment to the Far East and joined the ships photographer to assist in taking photographs at the various events the Officers and Crew attended during this trip. In 2009 I finally changed over to Digital and bought my first Canon DSLR. Since this time, I have attended various photographic courses, joined the South London Photographic Society and expanded my equipment so that I now have fully portable studio lighting and equipment which means I am able to travel to where I wish to shoot. I continue to learn, experience, expand my knowledge and skills. I now have my own website where I post some of my images.

Sonia Soltani 909- 1650 Sheppard Ave. E. North York, ON, M2J 1V3 *sonia_soltani@yahoo.com Dear Sir/ Madam, My name is Sonia Soltani and I am a Canadian-Iranian residing in Turkey temporarily. I have been working as a freelance translator and proofreader for last five years of my life. I specialize in Legal and Financial fields. I also offer my services in Medical or educational fields. I have worked in financial and legal organizations as a translator and an interpreter both before and after my post secondary education. I have lived in Canada since I was 13 and I have finished my post secondary education in Canada as well. I have done part of my schooling in Iran therefore, both English and Persian could be considered as my native languages. My mother tongue is Turkish. I work in Persian -English, Turkish- English and Turkish- Persian pairs. I believe in order to submit a job which is understandable by natives of a language, a translator not only needs to know the source and target languages but she/ he also needs to know the culture of the native people and I believe my experiences with all three of these languages will be a great resource for your company because I can provide you a culturally sound and correct job. You could also view my profile at Proz.com (paid membership): http://www.proz.com/profile/1364872 Best regards, Sonia Soltani
