Don Komarechka is a nature, macro and landscape photographer located in Barrie, Ontario, Canada. From auroras to pollen, insects to infrared, much of Don’s photographic adventures reveal a deeper understanding of how the universe works. Exploring the world that we cannot see with our own eyes has been a common thread in Don’s career as a professional photographer.
Always science-minded but never formally trained, Don uses photography as a way to explore and understand the world around him. Photographing something unusual or unknown is the perfect excuse to learn something new. Don’s work often pushes up against the technical limitations of modern camera equipment and the physical limitations of light itself.
Come visit me at Kempenfest 2019 to discover the newest areas of photography that I have been exploring – everything from extreme macro and ultraviolet through the many winter treasures that will ignite your imagination. There is a story behind every image and often times a fun behind-the-scenes photograph or video that adds depth to each image. Ask me about any image that piques your curiosity and I’ll show you exactly how it was made.
Kempenfest is where I will be debuting a number of new projects, including a stunning glimpse into stereoscopic 3D photography, a new run of greeting cards, and a number of “Print #1” pieces that you can become the proud owner of. First prints always debut at this show!
