Spencer Colquhoun

My love for photography began nearly 30 years ago. It was, and it continues to be, my escape and fuels my creativity every time the shutter closes.

My story is simple. I wanted to begin taking pictures, specifically portraitures, but I found many of the more experienced photographers were unwilling to help and share their secrets. Yet, I continued to gain knowledge about the world behind the lens. I attended several workshops hosted by the photographer, and now great friend, Art Ketchum.

Through Art, I came in contact with many great photographers, in particular, Bill Lemon, one of the best glamour photographers I know. After spending time together and building a friendship, we began hosting workshops. I made the move from 35MM film to medium format and then to digital photography, in addition to entering the world of Glamour and Model Photography. Another great photographer I was able to learn from was Ray Sopcruk, who is extremely talented and full of a tremendous amount of knowledge on studio lighting. Together, we opened our own studio in Western NY. During this time, I completed several courses at the Rochester Institute of Technology on Photoshop and have now been able to host my own workshops on the program. I currently use both Photoshop and Lightroom and offer instruction in both.

After my retirement, I relocated to North Carolina and am inspired by the wildlife this area has to offer. Glamour and Model photography is still a huge part of my photography life, but I’m currently focusing on Wildlife and Nature Photography
