“My motivation for being a nature photographer is
to strive to accurately capture a peaceful visual
mood and spirit of reality as I experience it and to
convey that sensation of awareness through the
photograph for others to feel.”
Nature / Wildlife & Architectural Photographer Gregory Pichnej Haliburton & Muskoka,
Ontario, Canada “Greg” Pichnej was born in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Following a fine
arts curriculum at Montreal’s renowned Ecole des Beaux-Arts, he started his profession
in photography in 1968. In 1970 economic realities encouraged a career realignment into
the emerging environments of computer operations and telecommunications. Photography
remained a priority passion that was never tarnished by the mere reality of earning a
living. Greg enjoys his life on this planet in “cottage” country, originally in the Quebec
Laurentians and now, Ontario’s beautiful Haliburton Highlands. Retired from the corporate
rat race since 2000, he was finally able to refocus his creativity on capturing unique
images of nature.
