Caitlin Cronenberg is an award-winning photographer and director who's been published all over the world. A-list stars like George Clooney, Donald Glover and Meghan Markle have all been on the other side of her lens.

She also has a close connection to Drake. She shot all of the photos for Drake's 2016 album Views, including the iconic, much-memed CN Tower photo on its cover.
