Bill Lockington – Ashburnham Ale House
During 2016, I enjoyed two separate trips to Fogo Island, Newfoundland and Labrador. One trip in June, was made in conjunction with my work with Community Foundations of Canada, and the other as an invited artist to the Tilting Feile Festival in September. Fogo is like a microcosm, a world unto itself – fiercely independent and yet so typical of the character and cultures of this wonderful part of Canada. I hope you will enjoy my images of the landscapes, people, and cultural activities of Newfoundland and particularly this part of Canada that everyone should visit.
Bill Lockington, a co-founder of SPARK, has been a life-long photographer who teaches, exhibits and is a frequent contributor to periodicals and publications. His work is exhibited in the traditional forms of framed prints and large canvases in a number of private and corporate collections and in self-published photography books. He has participated in numerous workshops with, among others, noted Canadian photographers Freeman Patterson, Andre Gallant, Lyle McIntyre and Dennis Minty. Today Bill teaches digital photography and image editing, through the Art School of Peterborough, and has taught at Fleming College’s Haliburton School of Fine Art. Travel strongly influences the subject matter of his photography. He enjoys macro work and the pure creative side of the photographic medium. Favourite thoughts on photography are “there are always pictures in the pictures” and “your best pictures are those right around you”.
