All photographers dream of the African experience – some of the most interesting and prolific wildlife in the world, numerous cultures and unique geography. Mine was 2010, seven weeks, 11,000 kilometres, 8 countries, coast to coast; never to be forgotten. These are a few images that record the experience.
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”.
