I am pleased to announce that I will be presenting at 'The Business of Fine Art Photography Symposium' in Calgary, Alberta this coming September 24-27, 2018. Over the course of the two-day symposium, I will be speaking about The Business of Publishing Books and Calendars, Stock Photography and What Makes A Successful Image. Three other excellent Master Photographers will join me to share their passion and love of photography, including Kristian Bogner (Canmore, AB), Chris Collacott (Vancouver, BC and Tula Edmunds (Calgary, AB). An optional hands-on workshop will take place in the Canadian Rockies (the exact location to be determined). Visit the website to read more about the details and schedule of this exciting 'Landscape, Nature and Travel Symposium' sponsored by MPI (Master Photographers International). Autumn is a wonderful time to visit one of Canada's most beautiful places. Learn all about photography from four experienced and award-winning Canadian photographers. Hope to see you there!
Grolle Fine Art will be displaying a selection of my fine art photographs this coming Saturday, April 18 from 1- 6 PM. From 1-4 PM, I will be available to chat about my work and sign copies of my latest book 'Mike Grandmaison's Ontario' (published by Turnstone Press) which was released just last Thursday. At 4 PM, I will speak formally about my work, about my thoughts on my techniques and approach to my art. I will also discuss the creation of some of my most memorable images.
I am looking forward to meeting you this Saturday.
The exhibition is on display from April 17 to 24, 2015.

Just three more days before the inaugural launch of DAAX - Design Art Architecture Expo - happening this very weekend from Friday October 4 through Sunday October 6. It takes place at the Red River Exhibition Place in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
I will be collaborating with Ella Donnelly of Infinite Interiors, an award-winning interrior designer who combines sound design principles with aesthetics, client taste and personality to create infinite interiors, whether in a residential or a commercial setting. Ella, Kevin and I have been very busy building a set that Ella will furnish as per her design and which will incorporate a selection of my fine art photographs.
Photographs of the natural world provide inspirational and meditative interludes from the occasionally charged and energized atmosphere of corporate offices, and my intimate views of the natural world and exquisite landscapes provide the perfect compliment to structured architectural environments. In addition, photographs from The Canadian Gallery will enhance the tranquil and peaceful atmosphere of any home. 'Lake Huron Sunset', printed at 60x40 inches, is a fine example of the fine art photographs available though 'The Canadian Gallery'.
Ella and I are very excited about this event and we very much look forward to meeting you this weekend at DAAX !
