Ian Barker

For about 15 years Ian has been photographing subjects in the natural environment during all seasons. Particularly birds, but also other animals and plant life have been refracted in his macro and telephoto lenses. While, by circumstance, many images reflect The County, he has been fortunate to experience nature in other parts of North America, South America, Australia, Europe and Asia.

Ian Dickinson

Ian is an amateur photographer living in Belleville, Ontario, Canada. Photographing birds in the wild is what I specialize in, but there are other wildlife, landscapes and some travel photographs as well. Click here to see more.


Bert Jenkins

I have been taking photographs for a frighteningly long time - since 1959, if the truth be told. I am primarily a landscape photographer, a documenter of landscapes, interested in the shape of the land, its distinguishing characteristics, what it feels like to be there and to walk upon it and what differentiates one landscape from another. Click here to see more.


Paul Jones

After bird watching for many years I now devote more time to photography. The skill I have was picked up by trial and error on my own, and from tips generously provided from other photographers. Photos I see on flickr are a big inspiration. In addition to static portrait shots I like good images of moving birds in cluttered habitat, but I find they are a real challenge to secure. Click here to see more.


Jason Pettit

I'm a landscape photographer born and raised in Prince Edward County. Throughout my life I have appreciated the unique beauty of my home and have always sought ways to experience it. What I hope to achieve with my work is to show others what I see, to share with them my own appreciation of my home and so gain a deeper attachment to the wild places of Prince Edward County. Click here to see more.


Jay-Dee Purdie

I am passionately in love with living my life to the fullest, and I always want to be able to experience new adventures and learn new things. I enjoy change; I like to push myself out of my comfort zones. My passions are photography, motorbiking, downhill skiing, spending time with friends and learning. I would describe myself as a autodidactic individual who is a gregarious recluse. Jay-Dee currently lives in Ottawa, Ontario, where he enjoys spending his time doing just about anything he wants to do. Click here to see more.


Daniel LaFrance

I love many types of photography. My happy place is being in the great outdoors! There's nothing quite like exploring and uncovering hidden gems in nature and charming rural communities all around Ontario. Prince Edward County is one of my favourite spots to explore!  Click here to see more.
