Wayne's Go To SIGMA Lenses: 14-24mm f/2.8 DG HSM | Art, 24-70mm f/2.8 DG HSM | Art, 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM | Art
Based in the artistic village of Elora, Ontario, Wayne Simpson is a professional photographer who specializes in dramatic portraiture and landscape photography.
What began as a side passion while working as a graphic designer in Calgary, Alberta, has now blossomed into the full-time, creative endeavour that is proudly Wayne Simpson Photography.
Simpson’s ultimate goal, whether he is photographing a person or a place, is to create images that evoke emotion and a sense of mystery. Exceptionally executed, his portraits hold a mythic quality and hint at a deeper story, beckoning the viewer to wonder about the subject’s life and experience. He actively seeks out many of his subjects and builds a rapport with them before a portrait is created. His award-winning landscape photography, on the other hand, showcases the mood, drama, and extraordinary beauty of the planet’s wilder places and inspires the viewer to appreciate the more subtle details.
While his niche lies in portraiture and landscape photography, Simpson’s versatility as a photographer carries into his commercial work and event photography, making his style distinctive in the industry.
As an educator, Wayne Simpson conducts portrait and landscape photography workshops throughout Canada – from the peaks of Banff National Park to the beautiful coastline of Prince Edward Island. He is also a proud contributor to OFFBEAT, a cutting-edge photo community that helps photographers push themselves creatively through meaningful online interaction and web-based resources.
Simpson’s images have been published in such magazines as Outdoor Photography Canada, Outdoor Photography Magazine, Canadian Rockies Annual, Legion Magazine, Integrated Health Practitioner Magazine, Canadian Geographic, Nature Photographers Network and Dark Beauty, as well as in countless books around the world.
