Congratulations to Chris Collacott for placing in the top 50 of the 2013 EPSON International Photographic Panorama Awards. One of Collacott’s’ winning pieces, Electric Vancouver, is available for purchase in Framagraphic‘s showroom.
Collacott’s panoramic work has come a long way from his early beginnings- which involved working with 35 mm film stitched together by scotch tape. Now, through careful planning, forecasting, location-scouting, and with some of the best digital equipment available, Collacott has developed a formula for capturing stunning and sophisticated images. Not everything can be planned though, and like a true photographer, Collacott must be flexible- open to the unexpected, and accepting when Mother Nature decides she’s not yet ready for her close-up.
Vancity Buzz has recently featured Chris in an interview where you can learn more about his inspiration, his process, and some of the best spots he’s found.
