|My name is Colin Andre, and Photography is my Passion.|
My interest in photography has spanned more than a quarter century. I have been involved in computer graphics since the mid 1980's.
My strong background in Information Technology as a Computer Systems Engineer, seems completely opposite to the creativity of photography, but, interestingly enough, Digital Imaging ties directly into that environment. As a Photo Club member, I have won numerous awards for my images when competing against others, both inside and outside of our club.
My memberships and affiliations are as follows:
- Abbotsford Photo Arts Club (APAC) Member
- National Association of Photoshop Professionals
- Microsoft Certified Professional, & Systems Engineer
- Certified Instructor
- Semi-Professional Photographer
At present, my job calls on my IT skills, Photography, Graphic design, and many others. As a sideline, I tutor in Digital Imaging using Adobe Photoshop and Elements, and teach Adult Education classes in Web Design. At the Abbotsford Photo Arts Club, I hold forums, and give regular talks on digital photography and imaging.
