    This scholarship is annually awarded to a student of the Photography Department at ACAD. It has been a few years since our last major fundraiser, and the fund has dropped below a self-sustaining level. We are calling on the photography community to make a donation. Our goal is to raise enough funds so it can sustain itself in perpetuity.

  • Who painted the new mural at The Camera Store?

    We are honoured to have a new mural painted by Mat (Mateusz Napieralski) from A Gust of Wind Studio, as part of a Calgary Arts Development project. Mat creates multidisciplinary designs, and has been based in Calgary since October 2016. “As soon as I arrived here, I became inspired by Canadian culture, outdoor-living and my new surroundings. Since then, I’ve been focusing more on nature, and organic shapes and forms. I’m always trying to translate it into my graphic, bold style of work.”

    When asked what he loves most about photography Dr. M Robert Ito referred to a quote by the writer-photographer, Ralph Hattersley:
