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.

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.

As we now all face ever challenging times within our new normals of social and physical distancing, and self-isolation due to COVID-19 coronavirus, it is with sincere regret that we must inform you of our Capture Oakville Planning Committee's decision to cancel the 14th Edition of Capture Oakville Photography Competition, originally scheduled on Friday, April 24, 2020.

We realize that many of our Member photographers have gone to much time and expense to enter and participate in our 14th Competition.  While nothing has been confirmed, the Committee is currently discussing a number of options for hosting a scaled-down version of our event at a later date in 2020.

We hope you will join us on at a date to be determined as we announce the winners of our 2020 Capture Oakville Competition.
 

I trust that you understand and support the above decisions.  If you have any questions, please feel free to correspond with me directly.

Many thanks for your ongoing support of our Committee, and our Capture Oakville Event.

Be Safe; Cheers, Bernie

Bernard Cook

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.

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.
