About Peter Zack
I want to start by saying Thank You for coming to the site and spending some time with us. There are thousands of web sites you could visit and you’ve found yourself here. I hope you enjoy your time here and come back periodically to say hello, learn something and leave a comment. Plus I know I will learn a lot from you as well. If you have a story, article, photo or idea you would like to share, please email me using the “Contact us” link to the right. I look forward to hearing from you.
I hope to share some experiences and maybe some useful information in and about Photography. I also hope to learn from you, the reader. I was invited to add my ideas to Miserere’s site and for me, this will be a work in progress. As someone once said, “the day we stop learning, is the day we die” I started this journey with photography as a teenager in the 1970’s. It began with making short animated movies from still images. Later I built a full darkroom and did my own colour and black and white printing and developing. The early cameras were all manual Pentax and Canon’s. After a few years the cameras were upgraded to the famous Pentax 6×7 camera’s and LX systems. Today I shoot with Pentax DSLR’s and 2 Pentax 35mm film cameras. Chosen mostly because they offer great backward compatibility, weather-seals and in body anti shake. But this will not be a discussion of brands. Frankly all today’s current cameras are excellent and offer the casual shooter to experienced pro, options we only dreamed of when we were screwing the lens on the old film body.
I joined a partnership with 2 other Videographers and Third Stone Productions of Halifax NS began. Full Still and Video wedding services. My work has been sold locally and internationally. I have also donated work to charity and would be happy to offer prints to a worthy cause. If you see something of mine you would like to offer for this purpose, please contact me through my web site.
Today I live in Prince Edward Island, Canada. I’ve been working in this field for almost 25 years. I specialize in landscape, wildlife photography also weddings, portrait and commercial work.
My goal in writing articles to this blog is to share ideas so that when you are at the edge of a lake or in the studio you never have to think about your gear. Your gear becomes an extension of your vision. I can’t say it better than this:
“Look and think before opening the shutter. The heart and mind are the true lens of the camera.”
