My name is Don Craig and I am an observational documentarian. I am also a photographer for the Province of British Columbia. In my spare time, I shoot freelance jobs and document life through personal photography projects.
In the last 25 years, 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.
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.
I document events, capture performances, create portraits, record architectural beauty and concoct savoury food images. And, I’m happy to say “yes” to nearly any photography challenge. Please contact me to discuss your photographic needs.
I use Fujifilm X-cameras and lenses to document life’s narrative, be it personal or commercial work. After a lot of experimentation, with various cameras, I find X-cameras to be exceptional for my way of working. As of August, 2013, I have been included in the Fujifilm X-Photographer program, an opportunity which gives me the chance to explore my photography through the use of these great cameras and lenses and to write objectively about my experiences with them.
That said, I am also happy to pickup my medium format Fujifilm GFX 50S camera for some slow-photography. Whichever tool I use, it needs to help me capture images without getting in the way.
