... Angela Schaerer photographs
Angela has been dabbling with photography
for a number of years. Before digital, she did some photography with 35mm film and at times worked with husband Jack photographing
weddings using a Bronica ETR. With the advent of popular Digital cameras she hit her stride, taking to the new technology
with a creative vengence. She is mainly self taught with some example and mentoring by Jack. Angela
uses a Samsung camera, a Canon XTi and a Canon T3i with a number of lenses. She uses Photoshop Elements
to process and finish her pictures. She has had a number of 'shows' including a month long exhibit at the Old Bank
Bistro in Fort Erie. Angela's personal work really shines with Flower and Child photography and she does a limited number
of commissioned photographs.
Jack Schaerer Photographs
Jack has been photographing for more
than 55 years. He started with a Kodak box camera and progressed throuigh early 35 mm cameras (Argus and Ricoh), 4x5
Graphic and view cameras, 2 1/4 (120) film cameras -TLR's and 35mm SLR's (Nikon and Canon EOS) and 645 (Bronica ETRs).
His experience runs the gamut from early family snapshots, to High School photography, to free-lance news, weddings, and some
commercial work. He is bacially self taught with some courses taken during the 1970's. Jack was a late adopter
of Digital and started using a Canon 20D when it was announced, and now works primairly with a Canon 5D Mk2 as his main machine.
Jack takes great pleasure in seeing Angela sucessfully making her photographs. Of his photography Jack says "...I
am not an 'artist' , but simply a fairly decent craftsman". He presents here a varied selection of work.
Landscapes form the bulk of his current personnal work although he still does weddings for friends.
Jack made his living for more than 40 years as an Accountant and Administrator.... Photography kept
