2019-2020 GUEST SPEAKERS

SALLY MELANSON - "NOW LAY ME DOWN TO SLEEP"

October 24, 2019

As far back as I can remember, I loved looking through photo albums...the ones my mom created of us growing up, but also my grandmothers old black and white ones, and even pictures of people I didn't know.  The idea that a moment of time and history was just frozen like that always fascinated me; I could almost picture myself there in that moment as well.

 

Photography wasn't something I pursued at first.  I graduated from St Thomas University with a Bachelor of Social Work in 2007, and worked in early intervention for many years.  After my first child, I found myself with a camera in my hands, and slowly started teaching myself and practicing.  I started up Two Little Twigs Photography in 2017, more as a hobby than anything else, but it's grown into something much more since then.  Earlier this year, I made the decision to stay home with my boys while they are still little, and focus more on growing as a photographer at the same time.  There is something so satisfying to my soul to be the one creating those frozen moments in time for people, and I truly enjoy every moment that I am behind a camera.

JOHN CHARDINE - BIRD PHOTOGRAPHY

Add some more info about this item...

November 21, 2019

I have loved birds and photography for as long as I can remember. This is a perfect combination of interests. Birds are everywhere and active during the day when there's light to photograph them! And of course they are exceptionally beautiful and photogenic. Bird photography is not without its challenges though- they are generally small and fast moving which makes it hard to produce sharp, frame-filling images. But if it were easy, it wouldn't be so much fun!

Birds live with other animals and plants, and so for me their photography extends in a continuum to photography of the habitats, ecosystems and communities in which they live. I think of this as “natural” photography in the same broad sense that the term “natural history” was used in former times. I avoid "hand-of-man" elements in my photographs: something that is getting more difficult all the time as our environmental footprint grows bigger every day.

Birds have been the subject of my professional career as an ornithologist for the past several decades (see my scientific publications here). I first made images- not of birds- with an old Vest Pocket Kodak camera bought at a jumble-sale for 6 pence (!) and have gone through several camera systems in the intervening years. Today I use Canon photographic equipment and am supported by Vortex, maker of Storm Jackets.

My photographs have been published in books, magazines and journals, brochures, conservation materials and the like, and in permanent installations in Canadian national parks, government offices, interpretation centres, conservation areas and trails. I invite you to have a look at the recent Second Atlas of Breeding Birds of the Maritime Provinces for which I acted in various roles including Photo Editor. I am resident artist at Fog Forest Gallery in Sackville, NB.

DAN MACDONALD - COMPOSITION IN PHOTOGRAPHY - OFF WEEK MEETING

PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER

December 05, 2019

My love of photography was sparked in the early 1990s. Self-taught, I developed my skills with film cameras and traditional darkrooms before transitioning to digital. For 25 years, photography has served me as a hobby, diversion, outlet, expression, and profession.

Through my children, I initially specialized in sports action and dance photography, and I worked in those two genres almost exclusively for several years. Occasionally, I've provided editorial services for national media and government. Currently, my efforts are concentrated in landscape photography. Time permitting, I find escape and rejuvenation through long-term personal projects.

I have taught basic photography courses at the Moncton Campus, New Brunswick Community College, since 2011, and for the Town of Sackville since 2016. I also offer private lessons for beginner and intermediate students in the Greater Moncton area.

Several of my fine art prints have been accepted into juried exhibitions. I am the recipient of both an arts residency and an arts grant.

I live in Moncton, New Brunswick, where I continue to hone both my craft and my vision.

 

Artistic Statement

Over the past few years I have been drawn to landscape photography. I prefer to stay close to home, capturing local scenes and settings, and highlighting the natural, rugged, and inherent beauty of the Maritimes. I am particularly attracted to coastal settings, to the merger of land, sea, and horizon, and to its inherent minimalism. I find similar beauty, art, and solace along the Tantramar marshes.

I sometimes rely on found subjects, discovered during random wanderings and journeys of exploration. More often, I return to locations multiple times. I may be in search of specific light and weather. Or, I may wish to record a scene in various conditions, thereby demonstrating the evolution of the subject and the fluidity of a static medium.

I prefer to isolate my subjects within their surroundings and, via negative space, within the final composition as well. I rarely, if ever, include people. Ideally, my images will evoke a sense of emptiness, loneliness, or abandonment. However, I prefer to let the audience find their own reactions, judgements, and conclusions as they view my work through their lens.

Ultimately, I'm simply trying to capture my surroundings as I see them - your world, my vision, one day, and one image, at a time.

ANDRÉ AUDET - NATURE PHOTOGRAPHY

December 12, 2019

It was a combination of the birth of his first child and his growing love for the natural world that inspired André Audet to pick up the camera for himself. Mostly self-taught, André started practicing his craft by capturing precious moments of his newborn baby’s life. Soon after, he took his newly found love for photography to the great outdoors, shooting landscapes and wildlife.

André’s experience is diverse, having also dabbled in other photographic styles such as weddings, concerts and commercial photography. André has been leading workshops and teaching photography classes in the Greater Moncton area for the past few years. His work has been featured by organizations such as SLR Lounge, Canadian Geographic, CBC and Saltscapes.

ANDRÉ POIRIER - FINE ARTS PHOTOGRAPHY

September 12, 2019

Andre Poirier was born and raised in coastal New-Brunswick and he grew up with an appreciation for travelling and its compelling landscapes. During his medical training, he was searching for different hobbies that would help him balance his daily stresses. Photography became an obsession with a goal of continuously learning and improving.

 

Travel photography gave purpose to his journeys and became a clear passion after his first large format print. Since then, his travels have been carefully planned around photography. It all starts by meticulously planning the locations and finding the right season long before the trip is booked. Then, scouting the chosen area and studying the weather to arrive at the right place at the right time is also paramount. He adapts to different situations and remains as flexible as possible during his travels. He uses different techniques to create high resolution files to be able to create large format prints. 

 

As of early 2019, Andre has been accredited as a professional travel photographer of Canada. His work is currently being exhibited and sold in a local gallery and soon to be expanded.

STEPHEN CONRAD - EVENT & CULTURAL IN PHOTOGRAPHY (2018-2019)

PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER

March 21, 2019

For me photography is people. My interest in photography dates back to my first childhood camera a 35mm Olympus OM1. (I still have that camera and it still works well. )

 

Every person understands and interprets or perceives in absolutely different ways. For me photography is an opportunity to show my point of view and to represent my outlook on life. It is a chance to capture a unique moment, share it and preserve it for future generations.

 

Photography reflects a personal reality. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about. Life isn't fair, but it's still good, all that truly matters in the end is that you loved and were loved.

February 22, 2018

I currently work as a heritage interpreter / professional naturalist (aka "ranger") in Canadian National Parks. I am an avid nature photographer, birder and semi-professional entomologist with an interest in many nature-related subjects. I got my first camera in 1988, a Nikon FM2.

 

That year, I did photography in university as an elective with Francis Coutellier, which helped me understand the art of film photography a bit, including developing Black-and-white prints. I discovered I really enjoyed wildlife and macro photography at that time.

 

I have been doing it as part of my job as a naturalist in Canada for three decades now.

I look forward to talking about my work with members of the group when we meet in February! (photo of me below by André Audet :) )

My work has been recognized by: Baltimore magazine, Environmental Graffiti, Experience Kissimmee, RÉCIT, Schmap, WCities, Whimsical World Travel, and more!

When I’m not thinking about (or actually doing) photography, I love travelling, spending time with my family, playing LEGO with my two wonderful boys, giving high fives to Mickey Mouse after doing Disney half-marathons, and watching The Amazing Race with my beautiful wife and wondering how far she and I could actually go.

And in case you’re wondering, I prefer Pepsi over Coca-Cola.
