Years ago people who took photographs often printed them. Although many of the prints were small in nature, the process of printing photos provided a very tactile, intimate experience with the photos and the experiences/subjects they captured. There have been many advances over the years with printing technology and options for having our photos printed on to various media/substrates. To become a great printer takes years of experience, but learning how to make beautiful prints at home (or prepping images to send to a professional printer) can be a relatively straightforward process with some good guidance. Join us for the "Intro to Fine Art Printing and Colour Management" presentation to learn a bunch of this knowledge and to start your journey of making fine art prints of your own work that you'll be proud to hang on your wall or to sell!
I am a fine art photographer from Milton, Ontario, Canada who specializes in nature and abstract photography. My creative vision is fuelled by my love of the outdoors and explorative nature. My photographic passions include landscapes, abandoned places, wildlife, and abstracts. I immerse myself in all aspects of my art and am involved in every facet of its creation from initial capture to printing and framing.
I am a proponent of learning the technical skills required to be proficient with your equipment and to aid in the creation of your art. However, I insist that keeping one’s creative vision at the forefront is ultimately most important. There is always room for our vision as artists to grow and evolve. The camera sees scientifically and therefore we need to see artistically. Capturing the viewer’s emotion and imagination allows them to resonate with my art with a sense of intrigue. My art evokes feelings of serenity, tranquility, and intimacy with the subject.
I am an X-Rite Coloratti, a ViewSonic Color Pro and a Hahnemuhle Certified Studio. I have been published in Outdoor Photography Canada magazine, Professional Photographers of Canada Gallerie magazine and the PhotoED Guide 3rd edition. I am also the former Gear Columnist for Outdoor Photography Canada magazine (until it closed its doors). I offer a range of services including fine art printing and art reproduction. I always welcome the opportunity to teach and inspire others. I regularly teach forensic photography courses to the Toronto Police Service as well as the creative and technical aspects of photography to the public through photo walks, presentations, and workshops.
I always try to keep a positive and optimistic outlook on life. I am always willing to help someone if I can. I believe that sharing information and skills is vital. We must never forget where we came from or those that helped us early in our journeys. I am very passionate about my photography and the services that I provide. I am also very fortunate and count my blessings that I can do what I love. Capturing the world’s beauty is my true passion; nature makes me whole!
