So, starting today, once a week, we will share the work of 5 photographers that span various genres and levels who we feel can help your…

En Pointe with photographer Karolina Kuras

0

It’s hard to say which is stronger, Karolina Kuras’s love of ballet or her love of photography. Luckily for her, Karolina is able to combine both these passions as the primary photographer at the National Ballet of Canada. The Early Days While still in high school, one of Karolina’s teachers that took notice of her images began to nurture the idea that she should pursue photography as a career. However, it wasn’t just Karolina’s high school teacher that noticed her talent. The photographers that Karolina worked with in the early days of her career also noticed and encouraged her to…

Tales by Light – Photography Doc Series on Netflix

0

If you have a Netflix account (best with the 4K UHD package) and an interest in photography or just like watching beautifully shot documentaries, I highly recommend the series Tales By Light. The six-part series (shot in 15 countries over the course of a year), offers us a rare behind the scenes look at photographers doing what they do best, in places and situations that most of us will only be able to dream about shooting in. Created for the National Geographic channel and produced by Canon Australia (the Canon 1DX and various telephoto lenses are featured heavily throughout), the series…

It’s not always easy to take great photos of the Great Outdoors… But after viewing Toronto photographer Michael He’s beautiful images from his recent trip to Iceland, it’s clear that he was able to capture Iceland’s beauty and grandeur with relative ease. Since taking up photography just 8 years ago, Michael has succeeded in winning numerous photography awards, including a Gold Medal at the 2014 Toronto International Photography Contest, and more recently the Golden Lens award in Toronto’s International Photography Festival (TIPF) in 2015. Michael’s passion for nature comes through in his beautiful images by taking full advantage of the…

Brad’s interest in photography began at the young age of thirteen, shooting his buddies on skateboards. Then the world got bigger and Brad got better. Now, as a professional, he says, “I like to shoot things around me, anything that looks odd or out of place or decaying, specifically related to architecture.” What explains his love for shooting black and white? “As a young kid I was really a big fan of Ansel Adams,” says Fisher. “From that stemmed a lifelong affinity for black and white landscape photography.” Brad likes a challenge.
