Mike Grandmaison -- December Book Signing at the Forks Trading Company

Join Mike Grandmaison for a book signing of Prairie and Beyond on Saturday, December 22, 2012 from 2:00 to 4:00 pm at The Forks Trading Company, 2nd floor of The Forks Market, Winnipeg.

"[Grandmaison] finds resonance and beauty in what many would pass by as being commonplace, and he brings a singular viewpoint to his work that is born of intuition, an innate humility, deep respect for the natural world, and an undying attitude of discovery."

Robert L. Peters, CGD, FGDC
Principal, Circle Design Incorporated

Friesens, the printer for Turnstone Press, recently received a 2012 PIA Certificate of Merit in the Art Books category at The Premier Print Award Competition for Mike Grandmaison's Prairie and Beyond.

----------

Still and stunning, wild and challenging, the Canadian Prairie is breathtaking to behold. In lush full colour, award-winning photographer Mike Grandmaison’s expert lens captures the vastness of sky and land with scenes of the elusive Northern Lights, misty fields at dawn, endless horizons, and the immense skies that define the prairie landscape. A place notorious for hardship and subsistence survival, the Prairie yields its beauty to the patient watcher. From birds soaring over wetlands, to wildlife grazing across rolling grasslands, Grandmaison’s trained eye misses nothing to bring the prairie to life in this remarkable volume.

----------

Mike Grandmaison’s photography has been published worldwide in magazines, calendars and books. With a background in biology, he worked for the Canadian Forest Service in Edmonton and Winnipeg for 20 years. Since he turned to photography full time in 1996, he has published four collections of his natural landscape photography, and he recently opened The Canadian Gallery in Winnipeg. Grandmaison has taught and lectured on photography and conducted nature-focused workshops for many years. He is a member of the Canadian Association of Professional Image Creators (CAPIC), the Professional Photographers of Canada (PPOC), the Society of Graphic Designers (SGD), and has received accreditation in “stock” and “nature” from the PPOC.
