About Lesley McCormack

Born and raised in Bancroft, Ontario.

I look at my new hobby photography as being 'country camera work'. I have always loved the arts but haven't had the time in years to pursue painting and drawing. I found myself constantly going for drives or walks and thinking to myself 'that would make a beautiful painting', so I started to take a camera with me when I went.
It wasn't until a few people started seeing my photographs and commenting that I realized that I was on to something and I could show people what I was seeing on my trips.
For me it is all about capturing the essence of daily life for those who live in our towns. That might mean taking a portrait of a man sweeping the street, but it could just as well mean taking a picture of the same street, now empty, at 6 in the morning. Whatever you find that brings daily rural life into perspective is worth photographing because it tells the story of the place you’re visiting.
As a hobby photographer of rural settings I am always looking for those little details that make a place come alive. You might find those details in the people you photograph, the tools they use, the animals they surround themselves with, or something else entirely.​
With animals or people I try to get on their level and photograph them up close. I want to show my viewers what life is like from their perspective.
Then there are all those other little things. Rusty old tools, when framed in the right way, I can give my viewers a historical sense of the place I'm visiting. Many farms have been around for quite some time, so there’s bound to be at least a few old buildings on the verge of collapse. These are often very powerful subjects that provide for some interesting still life photography.
