Highlighting ROAM Gallery Artist
Dallas Vienneau - Photographer
On an impulse, while seeking a new hobby to engage in during my spare time, I bought a DLSR Camera and became passionate about photography. That was almost 10 years ago. The passion, as a Photo Righter, to proudly steal the world’s majestic beauty, one photo at a time, to share with the world still runs strong in my veins. Stealing the beauty of Cityscapes, Flowers, Landscapes and the human creativity known as Music Shows are my areas of interest to photograph. A Photo Righter is defined jokingly in two parts: i. One who commits the immoral act of stealing and is convinced that what their doing is RIGHTEOUS. ii. Righter sounds exactly the same as Writer, it's a clever word switch-a-roo meant to work in conjunction with part one of the def'n by writing stories of the immoral acts through photography.
Long Exposure photography is the area of photography that currently ignites my passion and allows me to relax and unwind from the hectic life of the working world. Being able to stand still and admire the serene beauty of the world, for 2-5 minute exposures during daytime lighting conditions or for 10-20 minute exposures during sunset lighting conditions, elicits a calming and peaceful state of mind.
I’m currently exploring selective black and white mixed with colour long exposure photographs, were I leave most of the photograph in colour except for the water, which I convert to black and white. Making rough water look smooth as glass and capturing the streaking effect of clouds are my favourite two aspects of long exposure photography.
I’ve been a guest artist, for two weeks, at Front Street Gallery in Penticton, BC (Dec 2015) and participated in RAW:Vancouver CUSP event (March 2, 2017)
I was born and raised in Super Natural British Columbia, with brief stints living in Alberta, Ontario and Dublin, Ireland. I currently reside in Burnaby.
