wildlife & landscape PHOTOGRAPHY
A trip to Africa in 2009 and my first encounter with a lilac-breasted roller (my spark bird), started me down this wonderful path of Avian Photography.
I love the time spent in the field quietly observing the birds and their unique, interesting and at times, funny behavior. My feathered friends have taught me patience and attention to the smallest detail.
I am a native Cape Bretoner and have lived in the Sydney area for most of my life. I am a self-taught artist of multiple mediums, a woodworker, as well as an avid outdoorsman.
In 2004, as a hobby, I began photographing sports. Eventually, I was drawn to nature where my true passion lies, shooting wildlife and landscapes. I shoot from tree stands, ground blinds, my kayak and while hiking and exploring the island.
Born and raised in Cape Breton, Kris Tynski developed a strong admiration for the outdoors. His lens captures the wildlife, seascapes, and landscapes of the Island, focusing on the eagles, fox, heron, and deer that inhabit Cape Breton. Kris also offers wedding and portrait photography to clients looking for a unique experience to capture their special day and family dynamic.
I grew up in Germany and have been living in Canada for over 20 years. Most of that time has been spent in Cape Breton, which I am fortunate to call my home. One of the biggest and most positive affects that living in Cape Breton had on my outlook on life was that it is so vital to be immersed in nature as much as possible. This has always been the driving force behind creating my landscape images and documenting the adventures we pursue.
I live on Cape Breton Island, in Nova Scotia, Canada. Originally from Canberra, Australia, I moved to Cape Breton in 2002, and now live in the country in daily sight of the Atlantic Ocean. I like to be out and about, and I'm rarely without my camera. My favourite subject is unposed nature in action. Occasionally, you'll spot a denizen of my native land in my work…
Jim’s adventure in photography started in the 1950’s, in London Ontario. He became the unofficial photographer for the secondary school he attended and covered the activities, dances, and sports as time permitted. During the following years he did weddings, family gatherings and a couple of photo/journalist projects.
He started a daily ritual of being up at least an hour before the sun and photographing the sunrise or what ever the weather threw at him. The “Cape Breton Sunrise” email list quickly grew to over 1500 members and was delivered 7 days a week. The Cape Breton Sunrise routine had lasted for 10 years.
I find it very difficult to describe my photography because it is so impulsive. Sometimes I see something whose pixels simply beg to be captured and I point my camera at it. In a few instances, that’s enough and I’m happy with the result. Most often, however, the final image doesn’t materialize until I’ve messed with it in my computer and stumbled, often by accident, on a result that I want to show to people. I combine pictures, distort them, and assemble multiple images into a single whole and the fun is to achieve a result that both pleases and surprises me. That’s why I do this!
