You may have seen him in our store chatting with Jim, drinking coffee in the kitchen with Colleen, or with his laptop open and sitting with Walter. He pops in here frequently – introducing Cedric the Photographer, a freelance photographer and POCP certified assistant based in Toronto.
He began on his path into photography when he quit his job, bought a digital camera and plane ticket to Chile (when 3.3 megapixels cost $1000). He started with landscape photography because, as he likes to say, “landscapes don’t talk back.” His next big step into the world photography was when he accepted a job as a portrait photographer with Heirloom Portraits. Traveling throughout Canada’s remote northern communities taking school photos and family portraits was his day job for months on end. This interesting job also provided him with many opportunities over the years to continue with his landscape work. He has since worked in a wide range of photographic areas, with his focus on studio portraiture. Visit www.cedricswaneck.com for more information.
We set Cedric up with a Cambo Wide RS camera, a Shcneider Apo-Digital 47mm f/5.6 copal 0, and the Phase One IQ160 digital back for the Doors Open Toronto weekend.
