Award-winning photographer Mike Grandmaison has photographed some of the most beautiful places in Canada. In his newest pictorial, Mike Grandmaison’s Ontario, Mike turns his lens to the landscape he grew up in. Born in Sudbury, Ontario, Mike Grandmaison has travelled to every corner of this great territory and captured vistas that hardly seem possible, from the untamed wilderness of the Canadian Shield, to the rolling green of the Niagaras. With his eye for the extraordinary, Grandmaison will help readers discover Ontario’s great outdoors.
In this handsome hardcover edition readers will find over 240 beautiful photographs of Ontario’s diverse and spell-binding landscape. Readers will also delight in the photo note section that provides insight into the stories behind the images.
Mike Grandmaison’s photography has been published worldwide in magazines, calendars and books. With a background in biology, he worked for the Canadian Forest Service in Edmonton and Winnipeg for 20 years. Since he turned to photography full time in 1996, he has published four collections of his natural landscape photography, and he recently opened The Canadian Gallery in Winnipeg. Grandmaison has taught and lectured on photography and conducted nature-focused workshops for many years. He is a member of the Canadian Association of Professional Image Creators (CAPIC), the Professional Photographers of Canada (PPOC), the Society of Graphic Designers (SGD), and has received accreditation in “stock” and “nature” from the PPOC. In 2007 he was awarded second prize in the Northern Lights Awards Canada competition for Excellence in Travel Journalism.
