    Finally, the Ontario Book Tour begins!

    This Tuesday, May 19, I start the tour with a presentation in Dryden, ON. During this book tour, I will be visiting select communities and cities in Ontario to make presentations and book signings of my recent book 'Mike Grandmaison's Ontario' by Turnstone Press. You can preview a few images from the book from past blog postings. Clicking on the image above will allow you to connect on other links.


    The various events will include some traditional book signings as well as some illustrated presentations. The presentations at the various camera clubs should be 'open' for non-members also - at the very least, you can be my personal guest! See the list below for an event taking place near you.


    I am looking forward to meeting many of you along the way - friends, family, photographers, naturalists, and anyone interested in beautiful images from the great province of Ontario!

    The 'Save Our Seine' organization (SOS) is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2015! To mark this important milestone, SOS is running a series of educational and recreational events and activities highlighting the natural, cultural, and historical features found along the length of the Seine River greenway from the city limits / floodway to the mouth of the river where it enters the Red River. I am honoured to be the first presenter at this series of talks. I will be presenting some of my images made along the Seine River this coming Wednesday evening - EARTH DAY - at the St. Boniface Library (55 Provencher Blvd) in Winnipeg, starting at 7 PM.

    Last Thursday evening, my young grand kids surprised me with a nice bouquet of flowers after the launch of my ONTARIO book. I wanted to photograph the flowers but thought I would do something a little different than simply documenting them. I used a slow shutter speed and panned the bouquet making dozens of variations on a theme. Here are three of those variations.

    This coming July 10-26, 2015, the city of Toronto in ONTARIO, Canada will host the 2015 PAN AMERICAN GAMES. In addition, the city will also host the PARAPAN AM GAMES from August 7-15, 2015. Together, TORONTO and ONTARIO will welcome visitors, tourists and delegates from all over the world as well as from various parts of Canada. The World will be focusing their sights on ONTARIO this coming summer.


    ‘Mike Grandmaison’s ONTARIO’ recently released book will make an exceptional souvenir for anyone looking for a fine memento or gift of their travels to ONTARIO.


    “From the ancient mineral deposits of the northern Canadian Shield to the fertile farmlands of the South, Ontario offers a myriad of spectacular landscape that acclaimed photographer Mike Grandmaison expertly captures. His wide-ranging lens covers Ontario’s vast and varied terrain, teeming with plant and wildlife.


    Beyond the photographs, Dr. Gerard Courtin provides expert essays on Ontario’s flora, fauna, and geology. Grandmaison’s anecdotes and composition insights in the Stories Behind the Photographs are a fascinating glimpse into the conditions and circumstances surrounding his work.


    A vision of riotous colour, grace, and beauty –‘ Mike Grandmaison’s Ontario’.


    "Mike Grandmaison's Ontario is my Ontario. Every image in this collection takes me to a place I know, a place I've seen a thousand times, and yet a place I'm seeing as if for the first time. It's the Ontario I see when I close my eyes. Except for an occasional silo or lighthouse, it's the Ontario that has been here for 10,000 years, and now, thanks to these superb photographs, will remain with us for a long time to come." - Wayne Grady


    The book may be purchased singly at many fine book stores throughout the province of Ontario and beyond or online. If multiple copies are required, the publisher Turnstone Press can offer a volume discount as well as fulfill your order quickly and efficiently.

    Mike Grandmaison's Ontario will make a wonderful keepsake for years to come.
