Simon Bolyn

Situated in Montreal, Quebec, I am an award winning amateur nature and wildlife photographer supportive of conservation efforts to protect endangered species and their diminishing natural environments.

I am particularly supportive of conservation efforts in Quebec, and donate the use of my photos to promote the protection of various species and their environment.

I have a professional background as the National Photography Educator for a major Canadian electronics retailer, and was chosen as a company representative for the Canadian Imaging Conference Tradeshow. I also have extensive experience in the promotion, marketing and advertising side of the photography industry, and received training from Nikon, Canon, Sigma, Olympus, Panasonic, Samsung, Sony and others in the use of their products.

Concentrating mainly on "things with wings", I believe extensive study of a species over the course of at least a year is necessary to properly develop an understanding of a creatures traits, mannerisms and character. This process helps me to choose how best to present a creature in my works, hoping that this brings a better understanding and appreciation for the environment we share.

My passion for photography has been shared through my photos by appearing in publications, competitions, website exhibitions and on-line galleries including:
