Algonquin – What to Shoot When Revisiting the Same Place
Join us on a photographic journey of Canada’s oldest provincial park – Algonquin Provincial Park. The photographs were taken over several years of revisiting the park and exploring areas starting from the Hwy 60 Corridor to the North end of the park.
Jacqui and Arjuna spent time before and during the pandemic photographing the park’s landscapes and wildlife. Here they share their experiences of photographing locally and revisiting the same area to capture its beauty and improve their photographic skills.

My fascination with the natural world has led me to travel the world and observe its beauty. Wanting to share my findings with my friends and family, I borrowed my father’s camera to record my journey; thus began my photographic journey. In 1984, I migrated to Canada where I discovered the vast wilderness areas of Ontario.
My travels took me to various wilderness areas located within the province. I used sunlight and starlight to capture landscapes, wildlife and at times the night sky. In 2016, a friend took me on a photography journey to Ontario’s oldest Provincial Park. This trip sparked an obsession that is still ongoing. I have hiked the trails and paddled the waterways of the park capturing its beauty in all its glory. Here I am sharing what I envisioned from those travels with you.
After arriving in Canada for the first time, I was given the option of seeing the city, or the countryside; well, I chose the country. Those first few days were magical and enough to make me fall in love with Ontario. I had heard of the lakes and trees but never could I have imagined just how beautiful this province truly is.
Today, along with presenting a science program in schools, for a non-profit organisation, I have a food photography business FoodPix.ca, and I love to spend my spare time photographing both wildlife and landscapes.
I believe that photography is an artistic tool, and should be used to show one’s interpretation of our world.
