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.

Macro Photography, for the purpose of this talk, is defined as images a nature photographer can easily create with standard macro lenses, or extension tubes. 

The size of the subjects comes with various unique opportunities to control composition and lighting, as compared to shooting landscapes. Some of Peter’s favorite approaches are demonstrated. 

Peter’s program is concluded with a short AV entitled: “The World Laughs in Flowers”.  This AV presents flower images mixed with images of landscapes in which they can be found.

Peter’s Biography.

Peter’s interest in photography was fueled early on by his interest in the production of AV presentations. His 3-projector, medium-format shows were seen in many places in North America, and “Strength In Beauty” was presented to close the very first meeting of the North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA) in Fort Meyers FL. 

Peter is an associate of the New England Council of Camera Clubs (ANEC) and an honorary member of the Mississauga Camera Club and the Don Mills Camera Club. 

Since his retirement from medicine, Peter has been active in competition judging and delivering workshops and presentations to Camera Clubs throughout Ontario.

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.

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. She shows her photographs in the United States, Canada and internationally. Her work resides in the collections of the Royal Ontario Museum, Winnipeg Art Museum and Santa Barbara Art Museum as well as numerous private and corporate collections. Deborah Samuel has lectured and led photography workshops throughout North America.

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

From a very young age, Arni has had great admiration and respect for the great outdoors.   Since his retirement a few years ago, he has been able to spend the time to improve his photographic skills in the field and in the digital darkroom.  As an award winning wildlife photographer, naturalist and conservationist, he is proud to have had his images published in conservation-themed, international journals including the prestigious Birdlife Australia, Wild Seed Project in Maine, National Audubon Society and Canadian Geographic.

After slowing down his career as a Cosmetic Dentist, he has spent much of his time travelling the world to photograph wildlife that is in danger of extinct from the perils of mankind.

“My photographic vision is to create natural but artistic images that will be engaging, and appeal to the general public,  thus helping to bring the story of these endangered animals and perils to our natural landscape, to the forefront, creating awareness the effects of climate change, pollution, urban sprawl poaching and industrialization.”

Ron hopes to institute a positive change to our world through his photography.

Leif’s passion and inspiration for photography is life itself. Being at a happy and satisfied point in his life, he sees things around me more clearly, and often differently, than he would without a camera up to his eye. Traveling and photography has given him the opportunity to see, appreciate and capture many beautiful places and wonderful moments in life around the world and enjoy several life-changing experiences. The entire process, from image capture through digital processing to printing and preparing his images for exhibit, is fascinating, relaxing and fulfilling.

Join the OCC as we welcome Club and Board member Jared Fein and his presentation on photomicroscopy.

There is so much in our immediate world that our eyes cannot see, but which can be revealed  and captured through photomicroscopy.  

By mounting a camera on a microscope, this amazing unseen world can provide countless opportunities to capture stunning images of things we mortals could otherwise not imagine.  

Tonight’s presentation will provide an introduction and overview of this area of photography, in which Jared will share a number of his images ranging from living microorganisms to other interesting everyday objects, then will dazzle you all with some of the best award winning photomicrographs from Nikon’s annual Small World photography competition.

We're very pleased to welcome Navy Nhum to present on Portrait Photography

In her words:

About

Not everyone gets my name right on the first attempt but it always makes me smile watching people try. Just in case you were wondering, it’s pronounced Na-vee Newm :)

My goals are simple, capture those real moments, the raw energy and most importantly, the story. To me, these are what make an image mean something and preserve more than just a moment in time. I’m not going to tell you how much I love photography or show a picture of me posing and smiling with a camera because well, no one wants to see another one of those. All I’ll say is that I love travelling, using the right side of my brain, and creativity is what keeps me sane. I also love the Rubik’s cube and really wouldn’t mind spending an afternoon just hanging out by the ocean solving it.

Nine Locations -Three Photographers - One India,

Bernie Cook, Juan Gil Niehorster and Gary van Eijk take you on a journey through Northern India as it is seen through, not one, but Three lenses.

As we take you on our adventure through the Himalayas and the Kashmir region of Northern India, you will see the people and places of India’s northern most Nubra valley, located near the Pakistan-India border, then to Pangong Lake on the border of China, to the Monasteries of Ladakh and Leh, into the green valleys of Manali, the Buddhist surroundings of Dharmshala, a journey within the holiest of Sikh places, the Golden Temple of Amritsar - the abode of God and finally on a spice quest into markets of Old Delhi.

Join us and learn as we review the best way to travel into remote India through our experiences, our equipment and our individual photography styles and through every unexpected turn that remote India travel took us….after all “nothing can prepare you for India" - but we will try!

The Oakville Camera Club Welcomes Larry Nicols to talk about people, architecture and travel photography and building a business around that.

In his own words:

Photography for me is all about the aesthetic. I like to create beautiful images. And I find beauty everywhere, especially in the imprint of life on people’s faces and on the landscape. I tell stories through my pictures. I especially love the nuances of black and white imagery. So much narrative is told in the gray areas.

My commercial work is clean and precise, like plain language. My artistic work is personal, whimsical and subtle. It makes space for the viewer to find subtext and meaning in ways that move and engage. That’s the real power of photography.

I have solid classical technique. I started taking pictures on a Kodak Brownie when I was eleven. I got my hands wet pulling light-sensitive paper through a series of chemical baths. The magic of watching an image appear has never failed to amaze me.

My classical background was a perfect launch pad into the digital age of photography. I not only embraced the technology wholeheartedly but led the charge on it. I find digital photography liberating, crazy creative and perfect for someone like me who seeks and appreciates the beauty in life.

We are very lucky to get Maia Sutnik, Curator Emeritus Photography, at the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO). We're going deep into photographic history with two European photographers, Josef Sudek and Alfred Eisenstaedt

The artistry of two legendary photographers explore the themes of commonality and intimacy. Throughout their long photographic careers, both photographers demonstrated craftsmanship, technical virtuosity, and imagination that was often unparalleled among their contemporaries. Sudek (Czech, 1896-1976) was grounded in his homeland and pursued a world of light and meditation; Eisenstaedt (West Prussia-Germany, 1898 - USA 1995), traveled widely and with great speed to capture the newsworthy.

Maia-Mari Sutnik is Curator Emeritus Photography, at the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO). Since starting to develop the collection of photographs at AGO in 1978, she has organized and or curated over seventy exhibitions on the work of; Robert Frank, Bill Brandt, Harry Callahan, John Gutmann, E. Haanel Cassidy, Charles Macnamara with M.O. Hammond, Michel Lambeth, Willliam Wegman, Andre Kertesz, Josef Sudek, Ansel Adams and Alfred Eisenstaedt, as well as, a wide range of thematic exhibitions, among them “Eros & Thanatos”, “Interior Spaces”, and “Responding to Photography: Toronto Private Collections”. Her recent major exhibition and corresponding book, “Memory Unearthed: The Lodz Ghetto Photographs of Henry Ross”, exhibited at the AGO and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, will be touring in USA. She has authored many catalogues, written extensively on photographic collecting and practices, participated on juries, panel discussions and lectured. She is an affiliated of Ryerson University’s Master Program on Photographic Preservation and Collections Management, and currently working on a book on Canadian photographer Michel Lambeth.

The OCC welcomes photographer Sean Pollock

About Sean:

I started taking photos in 2009 and shot a variety of subjects ultimately landing on portraits as what I enjoy the most. The last few years I’ve shot content for social media bloggers, LCBO, Lululemon and Lonely Planet. I worked at 500px managing files for stock photo sales as well as hiring and managing photographers. Now I am a freelance photographer shooting lifestyle content and weddings.

Presentation Summary

I’ll be presenting on the stock photo industry and why non-traditional custom stock photos are beginning to succeed.
