Based at the village of Elora, Ontario, Wayne Simpson is a professional photographer who specializes in dramatic portraiture and landscape photography.
What started as a side fire whilst working as a graphic designer at Calgary, Alberta, has now blossomed into the full-time, creative endeavour that is proudly Wayne Simpson Photography.
Simpson’s ultimate aim, whether he is photographing a man or a location, is to create images that evoke emotion and a sense of mystery. Exceptionally executed, his portraits maintain a mythic quality and hint at a deeper story, beckoning the viewer to wonder about the area’s life and experience. He actively seeks out many of his subjects and builds a rapport with them before a portrait is made. His award-winning landscape photography, on the flip side, showcases the disposition, play, and extraordinary beauty of the planet’s wilder places and motivates the viewer to appreciate the more subtle information.
While his market lies in portraiture and landscape photography, Simpson’s versatility as a photographer conveys into his firm work and event photography, making his personality distinctive from the business.
As an instructor, Wayne Simpson conducts landscape and portrait photography workshops throughout Canada — in the peaks of Banff National Park to the beautiful shore of Prince Edward Island. He is also a proud contributor to OFFBEAT, a cutting-edge photograph community that helps photographers shove themselves creatively through meaningful online interaction and web-based resources.
Simpson’s images have been published in such publications as Outdoor Photography Canada, Outdoor Photography Magazine, Canadian Rockies Annual, Legion Magazine, Integrated Health Practitioner Magazine, Canadian Geographic, Nature Photographers Network and Dark Beauty, as well as in countless books around the globe.
