Waterton Lakes National Park with Tom Willock

Landscape as Muse
S1:Ep1224 mins2005

We catch up with photographer Tom Willock at his family cabin in Waterton Lakes National Park. For many years, he photographed this place in both winter and summer. His interest is in looking at a landscape complete with its flora and fauna and seeing it as an integrated whole. It is a way to look at a landscape as a holistic continuum.

We watch him work as he shares his history, from the early beginnings of photography to becoming a director of the Medicine Hat Museum and Art Gallery. He also explains the different types of cameras he uses, and why.

Finally, we join him in his dark room where he reveals his delight when there is a connection between his vision and what the audience perceives.
