 9 Apr 2018 - Karyn Lee, Master of Photographic Arts

I live and play in and around Calgary, Alberta and I specialize in Science, Nature, and Wildlife photography. One of my goals is to visit and photograph as much of Canada as I can.  I love photography because it allows me to share discovery's and natures beauty with others whether its staring at views through a microscope, telescope or a telephoto lens. I believe life is a gift and photography helps me realize how special our short journey is. I believe if you met me you would be hard-pressed to find someone more enthusiastic and passionate. My hope is that through my photography I can bring about a better appreciation for nature and wild places and in so doing encourage all of us to do more to protect our ancient forests, coastal waterways and natural areas for future generations.  My photographs have been published in books, magazines and I have won several international photography contests. Magazine and web credits include: National Geographic, Canadian Geographic, PhotoLife, Outdoor Photography, Impact magazine, Alberta Views, Alberta Heritage Foundation, Nikon and Zeiss Calendars. I have had two photography exhibits of my Science Photographs.
