Don Beaulieu, Springwater Township Member Since August 2011 Artist Statement There is no great philosophy behind my images. I usually try to create an image representing how I "saw" the scene. In images of nature, it is often the beauty of the scene or subject that I'm trying to capture. In old rusty car parts and abandoned buildings, I hope to generate a curiosity or perhaps the perception of a former glory. I like textures.
Professionally, I shoot performers on stage, guest speakers at meetings and conferences. I like using remote flash units to control lighting. I shoot with a Nikon D80. Framing scenic/artistic photographs is very labour intensive, but I do think the best test of an image is how good it looks in print.
I do not do formal portraits or weddings, but enjoy shooting candid shots. I am for hire for conferences and seminars, to capture speakers and workshops. Email inquiries: Don@Donshots.ca (based in central Ontario, Canada)
