Peter Sinclair

Born in Scotland in 1947, I have been painting as a hobby since childhood, but took up photography 'seriously' in 1980 when I bought my first Minolta SLR camera, soon followed by a Yashicamat for black and white work. My painting had gradually become more realistic in style, which led me to photography. Paradoxically, my photography is now sometimes quite abstract, while my occasional acrylic paintings also fluctuate between realistic and semi-abstract.

After years of taking slides and producing black and white photos in my darkroom, I entered a slow period in the 1990s that ended with the purchase of my first digital camera in 2000. I have been a member of Camera35 in St. John's, NL, since 1987 (now an honourary life-time member) and more recently of the Evergreen and Comox Valley camera clubs. I retired from my work as a Sociology professor in 2011 and am now able to devote much more time to PRS Images. In 2011, I moved to Courtenay and the beautiful Comox Valley.
