FINE ART ARCHITECTURAL & WATERSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY

 rafiee

Mohammad Rafiee is an award-winning, internationally-published fine art photographer living in Ottawa, Canada. He is a university researcher and a self-taught photographer who discovered digital photography in 2012. He was then immediately attracted to fine art photography, and has been tirelessly exploring the world, near and far, for them. He captures those magical moments which represent reality as he perceives it, and then transforms them into art. He loves the process of finding the perfect creative compositions. His photography is primarily architectural and landscape, which lend themselves to black and white conversion using long exposure techniques.

Mohammad will be sharing with you some of the secrets that make his images possible.

PHOTOGRAPHY: ONE WAY TO IMAGINE THE WORLD AS IT ISN’T

michel dorais

A journey into photography that started nearly 50 years ago has led Michel Dorais to explore numerous aspects of our passion. For the past eight years, he has been devoting most of his time to photography. Most recently, he has been reflecting on the meaning of his work in a world flooded with spectacular images. He published (Canadian Camera) and spoke on a number of occasions on black and white photography and on the hard road leading beyond the technical side of our art.


«Why do we take photographs?» has been and continues to be an active quest of his. Today, he proposes a discussion, illustrated by recent projects , on how he is moving away from the «perfect image» into a world where every photograph carries something unique and marvellous but photographers are being called to organize them into a coherent artistic message and in a form that can be shared with others.
