P H O T O G R A P H I C  W O R K S Denis was born in June 1946, in a small rural community east of Ottawa. He bought his first camera at age 23, a Polaroid. Its purpose was mainly to record birthdays, parties and holidays. Denis still possesses many of these pictures; they are his treasures and a reminder of life then. In the 1970s, Denis moved to North Bay. Nature seemed so vast and so different. This new discovery increased his desire to take better photographs. This eventually led to courses in photography and darkroom technique. His studies further fueled  his desire to improve his imagery. Work brought Denis to the Toronto region in the late 1990s. He began to explore the region, more specifically the Niagara Escarpment, with its many waterfalls. This brought a new reality - beauty; we are surrounded by it. Beauty has always been a fascination and photography has provided Denis with ways to capture it. It is an exhilarating journey; at times it brings emotions and photography the means with which to express them. Nature's beauty and artistry has captured his spirit. Denis feels fortunate to be on this path . Photography is where life is most enjoyable. His soul has found its home.                                                                                                                                                                                                              Denis Lalonde All images on this site are © Denis Lalonde 2016
