Harry Nelson moved to Sudbury in 1966, with his wife Hilde, where he still resides today. He showed interest and skill at drawing from an early age and began painting as a teenager. He began photography as a sketching aid but soon realized that photography was an art form in its own right. While painting was eclusively studio based for him, photography was a highbly portrable activity that got Harry moving.
His involvment in photography increased once he retired from teaching in the late 90's. At that time he began selling his images. He has sold his work at a variety of venues across Ontario.
His primary subject interest is landscape, which in his mind include rustic, heritage, urban, and rural scenic elements. Harry utilizes digital techniques to manipulate the photographs in post-production.
All images are printed on premium photographic paper with long lasting pigment inks.
