Eric Drumm Photography

Welcome to my website....hope you enjoy!

Hello. I’m Eric Drumm, a travel and landscape photographer, based in beautiful Horseshoe Valley in Central Ontario, Canada about 125 km north of Toronto, passionate about photographing the world, from near and far. Perhaps I might better describe myself as being more of a generalist with a focus on landscapes, architecture and urban photography.  However I have always been interested in the beauty of gardens, flowers and forest. On an opportunistic basis, I will be drawn to making images of birds and animals.  More often than not, it is simply the beautiful or the fascinating that catches my eye, ending up as a photograph!

You will see images in my portfolio from a number of countries where I have had the good fortunate to visit including travels across Canada and the USA, Europe as well as the UK and Ireland, one of my favourite places to make images.  There are galleries from the Asia-Pacific region as well as the Caribbean.  However there are many images made closer to home, where the beauty of Central Ontario where I live and the near-by Cottage Country landscape present many wonderful photographic opportunities.

Mentors

My photography path has been greatly influenced by a number of outstanding teachers of photography including Rick Sammon, and Rob Stimpson, as well as Charlie Waite and Joe Cornish, legends of UK landscape photography.   These gentlemen all share a common passion for teaching and the art of photography.  Thanks to each of them for inspiring me to try new things and to continue to develop my own skills.

Professional Development

One of the best avenues for your own development is to join a local camera club. I have always felt that to get the most out of any organization that one belongs to, one has to be an active member.  After deciding to join the local Barrie Photo Club, I was privileged to serve on the executive of this 135 member strong club for five years, including two years as the President.  More recently I have also become a member of the Richmond Hill Camera Club, one of the GTA's foremost clubs.

Presentations

During the time as an Executive of the Barrie Photo Club and subsequently, I have had the privilege to deliver learning presentations on a number of occasions at the club's monthly meetings.  As well I conducted a four night course on Lightroom Basics for Club members.  I have also presented  to other local clubs including the Newmarket Country Images Club and the Midland District Camera Club sharing my love of landscape and travel photography.   If your club is interested in having me as a speaker on a topic of interest to your club, please contact me via the "Contact Me" button above.

Publications

My work has been licensed to a number of Canadian magazines including the cover of the  2019 summer edition of Dockside Magazine and the British Columbia Ferries on-board passengers' magazine. As well I have been an editor for several books and magazines published by the World Best Top Photographer Association, an international group of outstanding photographers. Several of my images and articles were including in those publications.  Again if you are interested in licensing any of my images, please drop me a line using the "Contact Me" button.

Exhibitions

My work has been displayed in several exhibitions including the yearly Barrie Photo Club’s show in the Rotunda of the Barrie City Hall.  An exhibition of a number of images from the back alleys of Toronto was on display and for sale at the “At the Five” restaurant in Barrie, Ontario.  Several years ago my work was shown at two exhibitions of artists from the World Best Top Photographer Association in the Stadtsmuseum Harderwijk, Netherlands.  More recently, I have participated in three different photography exhibitions in Moscow, at the invitation of colleagues in the World Best Top Photographer Association.

Digital Art

Shooting in RAW format, gives one increased opportunity to bring one's own creative vision to the final image.  For the most part, I like to present images as my eye saw them in the first place using tools such as Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop, Topaz Labs' suite of products, DXO's NIK Collection and/or Skylum Luminar.   However from time to time, I like to explore more creative effects by utilizing a tool such Topaz Labs' Impression digital image processor which allows you to take any photograph and convert it into something that resembles a painted or drawn art.  You may view some examples of these types of images and some other abstract art at Digital Art.

Fine Art Prints

If you would like to own one of my prints on a variety of media, you may order directly from this website by clicking the "Buy" button on the image and the print will be printed and shipped directly to you from a professional photo lab.  As well a number of my images are available for sale on Fine Art America.  If you are local, please use the "Contact Me" button above to discuss how we can arrange for me to personally deliver it to you.

If you have any questions about my work or would like to talk about working together, please don't hesitate to get in touch using the "Contact Me" button above and I hope you can also sign the Guestbook.
