Award winning Canadian Photographer John Bartosik, who studied at Toronto's Ryerson photo arts department is a commercial photographer with over 25 years serving corporate, industrial, tourism and institutional clients throughout North America. Johns debut as a photographer was initiated in Whistler, B.C. in the Tourism industry. Surrounded by the majestic beauty of the Coast Mountains, John was inspired to continue his own personal photography, some of which was published in the first of his three photo gift books titled Sea to Sky Country.
By 2003, John embraced the new archival technology to prepare and print his personal collection of works from original transparency film to digital files through high quality scans; "The results produced brilliant, exquisite colour with razor sharp detail and longevity to boot. I paint with light for capture then digitally paint with ink to meticulously prepare my images on high end archival papers and canvas as signed limited edition giclee photographs".
John balances his career as a commercial photographer while putting more emphasis on fine art photography.
To SEE is my journey. I am a cognitive, perceiving being moving through space and
time. I acknowledge and respect the essence of life, nature and its forces at play.
There are moments in life when alignments of my self with elements around me reveal an
indescribable sense of wonderment in which I crudely attempt to capture its essence with a camera.
Through mindfulness and awareness of these unfolding alignments, the hidden is seen,
infinity is felt and I awaken.
To SEE is to live, to live is to SEE,
To share the unseen affirms my journey to SEE.
