Minimal Monday Wrap Up no 182

**NEWSFLASH**
Next week I am off the Vegas (42+ degrees C weather, YAY! NOT!) so there isn't going to be a wrap up next week. The wrap up for next week is going to coincide with the wrap up the week after.

Beautiful work this week by all 7 :( people adding work to the theme. Is it me or is G+ as good as dead?

Great results, as always. Just hoping, that +Olivier Du Tré won't give up and keeps theme alive. Yeah, it's summer, and really.. Google's attitude to G+... it might be on the way to real Ghost Town, but still, I see every day more quality and more GOOD information as people seem to get from facebook (don't have account there, so just far-away observation). Going to post for theme on next monday!

Today is ‪#‎WorldOceansDay‬!

Here's a photo I made last year in Newfoundland on a very windy day. It was taken in Sally's Cove just outside of Gros Morne National Park and shows the Gulf of St Lawrence.

Hectic at work. So a super quick wrap up. Also, you're probably waiting to see a darkroom update. I'm keeping that for the big reveal. :)

Story
Tagline
Olivier Du Tré (˚1977, Ghent, Belgium) is a traditional fine art photographer based out of Cochrane, Alberta.
Introduction



Olivier Du Tré (˚1977, Ghent, Belgium) is a fine art photographer based out of Cochrane, Alberta.

“Zo vader, zo zoon” the dutch equivalent for “Like father, like son” holds true for photographer Olivier Du Tré, who credits his father as his inspiration.

“He’s a fantastic painter and a gifted photographer. As a child, I marveled at his uncanny ability to ‘dial-in’ his Leica M3 and produce the most beautiful shots without the aid of a light meter. I don’t ever recall thinking ‘I want to become a photographer’ at that time, but because of him, I definitely knew I wanted to be an artist.”

After graduating as a graphic designer in 1998, Du Tré found his passion after enrolling in a three-year photography program at KISP in Ghent. During this time, Olivier immersed himself in film cameras, darkroom printing techniques and black and white photography, all of which continue to play a huge role in his work today.

After seven years of travelling back and forth, Olivier and his wife Sarah decided to make Canada their permanent home in 2009. They settled just west of Calgary in the small town of Cochrane.

“The move was a product of passion. My wife is an avid horseback rider and I wanted to be closer to the subject matter that I found so intriguing, the open spaces and the compliment/contradiction of man and nature, there’s a unique symmetry to it all.”

Olivier’s work has been published in multiple online magazines (ƒ11 Magazine no. 19, Stark Magazine no. 7, Landscape Photography Magazine no. 18, ...) on numerous photography blogs and in print in Lenswork Magazine no. 103.

Recently one of Olivier’s photographs received a bronze award in the annual international photography competition Prix de la Photography, Paris (PX3). And this year, Olivier’s work got noticed by the Ian Tan Gallery in Vancouver who now represents his work for Western Canada.
