Cornwall Ontario — Photographer Claude Bissonnette created the “Through the Lens” page on Facebook as a place for local photographers to display their talents online, have discussions, network, and learn from each other.
“I discovered a passion for photography with a particular interest in natural landscapes”, says Bissonnette who actively participates and shares photos and resources on the page.
Claude Bissonnette will be the first of hopefully many photographers to have their work featured and published in the print edition of The Seeker newspaper.
“I was contacted by The Seeker to see if we would be interested to contribute photos to their newspaper. Special thanks to Jason Setnyk for arranging this”, explains Bissonnette.
Every second week The Seeker hopes to publish a photograph by a different local photographer from the Cornwall area (including the Counties of SDSG and Akwesasne).
According to Bissonnette, “It is great for a local newspaper, The Seeker, helping our local group of photographers and possibly in return you might consider using their services in the future. Happy Snapping!”
