Michèle Thompson 

 

Kase Canada’s Pro Partner , Michèle Thompson  is a Canadian land and cityscape  photographer who was born and raised in Halifax, Nova Scotia but has now made Toronto Ontario her home.   

 

Michele started photography a few years ago initially as a way to help with her depression and anxiety as it  has been a perfect way to practice mindfulness  a mental state achieved by focusing on one's awareness of the present moment .  However it quickly developed into a passion for capturing the  little details of nature and cityscapes that she sees in her daily life whether at home or when travelling in Canada and the USA.  

 

Using her macro to  wide angles lens   Michèle’s photography provides a unique perspective to the beauty she’s sees around her.  On her Instagram and in her photo books she frequently likes to pair her images with select words to evoke an emotion  or memory.  However many times her images need no words as they simply speak for themselves. 

 

Michèle is a published photographer who shares her images on her website Magpie’n’Moo Photography  ( a blend of the two nicknames given by her family ). Most recently she has started a blog:  Photography Made Simple where she shares photography tips she has learned over the years with the purpose of providing basic,  simply explained  practical guidance for the beginner photographer. 

 

“ Mental  disorders affect one in four people, and having been living with one, it is a topic near and my heart. I made a decision to donate a portion of the proceeds from any of my work  to The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) and The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA), both of whom provide services and supports to people who are experiencing mental illness.   Many thanks in advance ! Cheers, Michèle “

Hey, I am Stanley

An Explorer, An Artist and An Educator


Since I left my career, my mission has been to capture and share the world's unseen perspectives, also to empower, inspire and help others pursue their passion and capture their dream shot.

For this reason, I offer FREE guides, Masterclasses & Mentorship

Crossing Morocco’s Sahara desert by camel, hot air ballooning across the captivating fairy chimneys of Turkey’s Cappadocia, sailing through Indonesia’s thousands of islands, exploring more than 40,000 kilometres across Australia in a 4WD and chasing the stars in Canada’s extreme sub-zero temperatures.

Travelling is the vehicle by which we can all experience what it is to live multiple lives within the one we are given.

My passion is to seek out the experiences beyond those which are given to each of us and bring them to you. I seek these out in every corner of the world, near and far, accessible or otherwise.

A short 2.5 years ago I left my career as an engineer to pursue my love for travel and my passion for photography and education.

Since then I was able to get published in publications like Canadian Geographic, TedEd and more. Have been exhibited in countries like Australia and the United States and won more than 100+ awards.

I am a pro-partner of KASE filters and I've collaborated with brands like Canon Australia, Brides of Asia, and more. Best of all I've been to 29 countries to experienced, captured and shared once in a lifetime moments around the globe.

Sharon Tenenbaum

 

 

 

Sharon Tenenbaum defines herself as an artist working within the medium of photography.  The artistic process is paramount in every creation she completes. 

 She always aspires to ‘show reality in a different way’, creating images rather than capturing them. Sharon is constantly challenging herself: whether experimenting with bicycle parts to create composite cityscapes or painting selective overlays onto her images. She is committed to the artistic process of growth and change in the continuous pursuit for novelty. 

Sharon was educated as a Civil Engineer.   Her love for structures is reflected in a vast body of works that celebrate more than mere architecture, but rather, the Art in Architecture.

As an artist, Sharon has won numerous international photography awards, has been published in esteemed magazines such as National Geographic. As an educator, Sharon has taught group workshops from New York to Melbourne, as well as online.  She has a variety of video tutorials and ebooks and is the founder of Talk-&-Learn, a free one-hour weekly zoom session for image critique and creation.

 

 

Alan Pinn

Alan Pinn began taking photos when he was just 16 years old and has been shooting his entire adult life. He studied photography at the Ontario College of Art & Design, where he also studied illustration and graphic design. While running a successful and award-winning graphic design business in Ontario, he continued to pursue his love of photography by offering photo services to many of his clients. His photography has been widely used in a variety of marketing material across Canada including print material, trade show displays, packaging, and websites. Alan also ran a successful wedding photography business for 12 years.

Alan made the move to Nova Scotia about 3 years ago, looking for a life-style change. He is now semi-retired from his graphic design business, but still continues to provide graphic design and photography services to some long-standing clients. His life-long enthusiasm for the outdoors and adventure has been rekindled in this new surrounding and has renewed his passion for landscape photography. He’s always felt a very strong connection to the ocean, rugged coastlines, and dramatic landscapes - and Nova Scotia delivers that in style!

He is fascinated by the endless variety of light, compositions, and the environment of this region. Crashing waves, gorgeous sunsets, exciting waterfalls, and coastal vistas all continue to fuel his passion for landscape photography.

Alan has always been a dedicated Nikon shooter and is now excited to be part of the Kase Filters Pro Partner Team in Canada.

Brett Michaud

Brett Michaud’s love of photography started at a young age. While leafing through the pages of magazines like National Geographic, his dreams of capturing images of exotic locales and beautiful landscapes took hold. As an adult, he’s spent the past twenty years as a teacher in the public education system. It is now that his passion for photography and career as an educator merge as he finds himself shifting towards a full time career as an educator of photography.

 

A lifelong learner, Brett has spent countless hours in the field while absorbing all he can on the subject of photography through books, workshops, YouTube and conferences. This hard work and dedication has paid dividends with his landscape images receiving recognition from fine art photographers and lovers of photography from around the world, along with being featured in magazines and, now, being selected to be a Kase Pro Partner. As a result of this success, Brett is able to offer a variety of courses and workshops aimed at helping others who have a deep seated passion for photography but have yet to realize their potential. Now, with the support of Kase Filters Canada, Brett adds a powerful partner in creating world class education and workshop opportunities.  We invite you to visit Brett’s website at www.brettmichaudphotography.ca for more information on upcoming learning opportunities.
