Sylvia Galbraith - Bio

 

Sylvia Galbraith, PhotographerSYLVIA GALBRAITH has worked with many art forms over the years, including clay, charcoal, watercolours and oils, but found that the limitations and challenges of photography inspired her more than any other art form. She is now a recognized professional photographer whose work sells worldwide, and even after more than thirty years working as a full time photographer, she has not lost her passion for the medium.  Her experience as a news photographer taught her to work quickly and anticipate fleeting moments and her editorial photographs have been published worldwide.  She supplies stock images for use in publishing or advertising and provides fine art prints for business and individual clients.  She also documents work by other artists, and works with many well-known painters and sculptors.

Galbraith has taught photography courses throughout Canada, including for the University of Toronto, University of Brandon, MB and Humber College. She currently teaches a popular series of workshops in her studio in downtown Fergus, and is an Associate Faculty Member for Conestoga College in Kitchener, in the Commercial Photography Certificate program.  Galbraith is also a guest instructor at Sunbury Shores Art Centre in New Brunswick, and the Wellington County Museum & Archives in Elora.  Her workshops draw on her own experiences as a photographer and artist and include topics that appeal to intermediate and advanced photographers.  Information regarding her commercial work and photography classes can be found on her commercial website at: Silver Creek Photography

While still providing commercial photography services, Galbraith devotes more time to personal projects, mainly documentary and landscape.  She exhibits her work regularly, and has photographs in corporate, public and private collections throughout Canada and internationally.

In addition to working as a photographer, Sylvia volunteers on a regular basis within the arts community.  She served a two-year term on the Board of Directors for the Elora Centre for the Arts, in Elora ON. She is a member of  CARFAC, The Elora Arts Council, The Guelph Arts Council, and is a member artist with Gallery 44 Centre for Contemporary Photography in Toronto.  As an independent curator, she arranges exhibitions for venues in the GTA and beyond.
