Interview with photographer Isaac Peters

For ENVISION I have planned to bring a variety of photos that focus on showcasing the beauty you see in nature and urban settings, aspiring to help others escape for a moment from their day to day lives.

Tell us about yourself and what you do?
Hello! My name is Isaac Peters. I’m a born and raised Calgarian who loves to explore this city and the surrounding area. When I don’t have the camera in front of my face I am typically sharing my passion of skiing during the winter and biking during the summer at two locally owned businesses. I hope that same passion comes through in my photography. I try to capture moments in time that I can escape to and I hope others are able to as well.

Who has inspired you in your life and why?
Do I have to name just one? There are so many people who I draw inspiration from that I don’t think I have enough room to list them off in this interview. There are dozens of other photographers that I follow incessantly on Instagram. Callum Snape, Erik McRitchie, and Jillian Brown are a few that come to mind. My greatest inspiration comes from my partner, Brittney. She inspires me to be the best that I can possibly be and to never give up on my passion.

What is your greatest achievement so far?
I think my greatest achievement so far has been getting published in Canadian Geographic’s “150 Ultimate Canadian Instagram Photos” book. I was completely taken back that out of everybody they had chosen one of my photos to publish.

What do you have planned for the upcoming RAW Calgary ENVISION showcase on Jan 18th?
For ENVISION I have planned to bring a variety of photos that focus on showcasing the beauty you see in nature and urban settings, aspiring to help others escape for a moment from their day to day lives. These will be on three different mediums: metal, canvas, and print. I will also have a selection of what I offer on my shop (isaacpetersphotography.com/shop), as well as new photos that will be  available for the first time at ENVISION. If I don’t happen to bring a canvas, print, or metallic print that you are looking for then I will also be taking custom orders which I will get out ASAP after the event.

Isaac will be one of 50+ artists involved in the ENVISION showcase held on Jan 18th, 2018 at the Marquee. To view the full line-up of artists and purchase a ticket to the showcase visit http://www.RAWartists.org/calgary/envision
