ABOUT 

The Story So Far....

George’s passion for photography started in High School and has taken him nearly across Canada. This Ottawa Valley-lad hit the scene after studying photography at Algonquin College in Ottawa. One of George’s first jobs was taking action shots for Wilderness Tours of weekend warriors whitewater rafting on the Ottawa River and assisted Gary Carter, now director of the photography department at Algonquin College. He then worked in custom photo finishing for several years, but felt an urgent need to pick up his camera professionally again. He returned to Wilderness Tours for another high-octane summer, before moving to Vancouver over twenty years ago with Lori, his wife and Bob the Cat. Shortly after moving west, George assisted with Dave and the late Mark Montizambert of Montizambert Photography. He has shot for a wide variety of clients, including BC Lottery, McDonald’s, Relaxus Products, Solus Decor, Tin Drum Interiors and Gabriela Adamov Garden Design as well as photographing numerous bands. George spent twenty years shooting portrait photography for The Artona Group, and was an instructor at Focal Point Photography Learning Center while still pursuing his own commercial and artistic work. He now lives in the West-End with his wife, son and their two cats.
