A Nikon Ambassador, Craig was first published at the age of thirteen, then freelanced on weekends before “officially starting his career” when he was hired into the press realm two years later.

As a featured presenter to events across Canada, the US & Internationally, he has a long list of credentials including multiple Photographer of the Year Awards, Association Masters degrees, the Yousuf Karsh Lifetime Achievement Award and is a member of The Explorer Club.

He’s always pursued the storytelling image and since been published worldwide in the fields of editorial, advertising, and corporate assignments.

With a passion for travel, light styling and a flair for on-location and underwater opportunities, his image creations are a combination of diverse influences from the editorial team he started with, the commercial industry he thrived in, and the portrait culture he has always been a part of.

An avid sailor on his 40’ Bavaria and scuba diver any chance he can, he’s always been a fresh air enthusiast and travel hound for any destination past the horizon.

The Unusual Suspects

Every photographer strives to break away from the traditional, even if only for themselves to achieve fresh purpose and higher gratification. Doing so is not always easy to achieve, especially in some areas such as travel and with subjects & settings that are so familiar everywhere in today’s highly visual media. We’ll take a look at how to recognize these opportunities and make use of a variety of creative and emotion triggering techniques that can bring greater impact to your imagery, excitement to your viewer and satisfaction to your spirit.
