Pete Mather Photography (PmPics)

Your Bio



"Thornbury, Ontario" "Collingwood, Ontario" " SEE THE GALLERIES BELOW "

Currently, the art of digital photography has surpassed the film camera and I decided to grab on. I have committed my energy and dedication to taking "PRISTINE" pictures of Collingwood, Thornbury, Beaver Valley and the surrounding area to the best of my ability.

Don't be surprised if you see me on the roadside with my tripod and camera at all hours of the day hunting for the "WOW" shot!!!! I do Landscapes, Nature, Farms, Interiors, Special projects and Aerials. Also, I am interested taking shots of boats. I have already done a on water shoot of Sensation and Ophir 2( See Below). If interested in prints or on canvas please contact me, email at
