DON CRAIG photography
My name is Don Craig and I am an observational documentary photographer.
I currently live and work on the unceded territory of the lək̓ʷəŋən speaking people, the Esquimalt and Songhees Nations.
In the past, I have worked as a designer and art director at Adobe Systems, run my own design firm and lived, and sometimes worked, in California, Mexico and Germany. After the turn of the century, I landed in Victoria, B.C. From 2009 until late 2021, I was the photographer for the provincial government.
I carry a camera a lot, in both my personal and work life. No matter what images I am capturing, I attempt to tell a story. Be it a corporate headshot, an opera performance or merely on-the-street “observational documentation,” there is a narrative hidden in the pixels or film grain. My goal is to make that evident, but not necessarily obvious.
Currently, I am creating fine-art images and providing a variety of photographic services, such as documenting events, capturing performances, creating portraits, recording architectural beauty and concocting savoury food images. I’m happy to say “yes” to nearly any photography challenge. Please contact me to discuss your photographic needs.
In my past life as a designer at Adobe and an instructor at California College of Art, I have taught designers and photographers how to use Adobe software. Since moving to Victoria, I have focused on teaching group and individual Adobe Lightroom workshops. If you are interested in optimizing how you use Adobe Lightroom, please contact me for workshop info.
