An award winning photographer and photo educator. Primarily interested in landscapes, he travels the world seeking out beauty in those wild and remote places on earth that still remain untouched by civilization and where nature commands ultimate attention.

Self-taught as a photographer, he spent time with Freeman Patterson, Canada’s renowned photographer, to learn the art of making great photographs. His training as a graphic designer continually shapes what he sees through the lens in order that elements such as light, shape and colour all work in harmony. His never-ending search for off-beat adventures have led him to explore the Himalayas of Nepal and Ladakh, along with South America’s Patagonia. He feels right at home paddling his canoe or hiking in his backyard, the country of Canada.

As a photo educator, his goal is for students to come away with not just better photographs, but a better understanding of photography, better compositions and most importantly, a skill set they now have and can use on future adventures.

With the rapid advance of digital camera technology, today’s cameras are capable of producing images that were not possible even just a few years ago. This talk is designed to show you how to get started with taking photos of the night sky.
 
Topics covered:
• gear requirements
• planning your shoot
• camera settings
• finding focus and getting sharp images
• calculating exposure
• shooting star trails
• light painting techniques

Deborah Samuel was born in Vancouver, Canada. Her family moved to Toronto and then to Ireland before she was 14. She studied art in Ireland at Limerick College of Art and Design and then returned to Canada to study photography at Sheridan College.

Deborah Samuel was quickly recognized for the distinct style of her fashion photographs and for her intuitive and intense portraits of celebrities, musicians and writers like Leonard Cohen, Margaret Atwood, Rush and Queen Noor, while she refined her personal work and exhibited extensively. Professional opportunities required time spent in New York, London and Los Angeles before she ultimately decided to settle in LA where she became an in demand editorial portrait photographer. Deborah Samuel worked for magazines such as GQ, Rolling Stone, Esquire, Spin and Entertainment Weekly, in addition to directing music videos for musicians and bands for numerous record companies.  Concurrently, in the galleries, Deborah Samuel’s photographs of nudes explored the pursuit of perfection in the media age- a prescient topic. Later her work evolved into formal portrait studies of animals and nature.

In 2012, The Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto exhibited ELEGY, a poetic solo exhibition of animal bones.
In 2017, The Gardiner Museum, exhibited ARTIFACT, an exhibition of strikingly creative photographs-elements of the divine.

Deborah Samuel currently lives in Prince Edward County, Ontario where she keeps a studio, Mac, her Jack Russell and Crow, a Spanish Mustang.

Jason Panda is a Graphic Artist and Art Educator living, creating and learning in the Waterloo Region. Whenever possible, he strives to create authentic learning opportunities that connect art to existing community and community initiatives. As an Artist, he uses a medley of traditional & digital media including illustration, sculpture, photography and digital painting. His focus is the layering and juxtaposition of elements to capture mood, create texture and present exciting new perspectives for common objects and environments.


Jason uses photography to capture moments and tell accurate stories… But it’s the manipulation of the image and the twisting of reality that really captures his interest. In his presentation, Jason will talk about his work as both an Educator and Photographer and will discuss how and why he might modify a photo using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. Altering, manipulating and Frankensteining an image might be sometimes seen as controversial, but Jason isn’t afraid to bend what we see in order to create something new and manipulate what we expect.

With a career spanning more than a decade, Trevor Godinho is an internationally recognized artist and published photographer, his work gracing the pages of Vogue Italia, Elle Canada, Men’s Health Australia, Sports Illustrated, Forbes, Playboy France & USA, FHM France & India, and much more.

His skill, vision, and passion for his art have led him to travel and establish a reputation in Toronto, New York City, Miami, Los Angeles, London, Milano, and Perth – putting him and his camera in front of notable personalities and Hollywood’s leading men and women. In 2017, Trevor was named the Canadian brand ambassador to Elinchrom Limited (based out of Switzerland).

In addition to photography, having graduated from the University of Toronto with an Honours Bachelor of Arts degree, Trevor’s creative range also includes painting, sculpture, and design. His mastery of these disciplines has led to his work being exhibited at Coldstream Fine Art and the Gardiner Museum in Toronto.

Trevor continues to mentor the next generation of aspiring photographers and artists, who he hopes will continue to tell human interest stories with vision and expressiveness. Trevor is an active supporter of both local and international charities, including NATO Association of Canada, Jays Care Foundation, U For Change, Artscape, and Big Blue Ocean Cleanup.

Trevor currently resides in Toronto, Canada. 

We would all love to have 12-24 hours with a subject in the idea shooting situations but that rarely ever happens. Capturing portraits is all about the right moment and making use of your time with the subject. In my talk I will dive in to my process of capturing some of Hollywood’s well known faces, while giving you a bit of background on my journey and where I am aiming to go.
