Tuesday, Dec. 3rd – Tim McGrath

Tim arrived in Nanaimo in 2007 – a result of
a broken heart. Photography took on a new
importance. With newfound love and a new
camera, life has changed.
Tim is now operating two photography
studios which are very different. One is a
business, the result of business and marketing
plans. ITS-Food.ca is a professional food
and beverage photography business for
restaurants, food distributors, breweries,
distilleries, cideries cookbooks, and
magazines. It is a very niche focused
business which makes it easier to market.
The other studio, ITS-Photography.ca, was
born out of the love of nature. This is more of
an organic growth studio. Living here on the
west coast, landscape & nature photography
is a given. This is where Tim’s event and
portrait photography live. He does shoots for the Chamber, some non-profits, small
businesses and sports teams.

For more about her exhibit, visit the Vancouver Art Gallery. http://www.vanartgallery.bc.ca/current-exhibitions

A bonus is that there is an Emily Carr exhibit, as well, at that time.  “Rapture, Rhythm and the tree of Life: Emily Carr and her female contemporaries.”

The first Monday of the month is “free day for seniors”.  Otherwise, regular admission is about $24.00.  We have to be there before 1:00 for this “special”.  The Gallery is open 10:00 – 5:00
