Saturday Morning Keynote Presenter
Andrew McLachlan 
McLachlan is a full time photographer/writer from Ontario, Canada. For as long as he can recall, he has been fascinated by the natural world. McLachlan's photography became an extension of that love. If he did not own a camera, he would still be found hiking along dense boreal forest trails, canoeing through wetlands, and observing all the beauty that nature has to offer. Extensive travels throughout Ontario have resulted in a large, diverse collection of images that feature landscapes and the flora and fauna of the Ontario and beyond. https://www.andrewmclachlan.ca/

Conrad Kuiper: Kuiper is a high school English teacher and passionate amateur photographer. His principle hobby is learning and photography allows him nearly unlimited opportunities to explore creative expression and growth. He particularly enjoys being in nature and can often be found wandering in the Hullett Provincial Wildlife Area where he captures landscapes, birds, animals, and macro subjects such as insects and flowers. You can view some of his images at https://www.flickr.com/photos/conradkuiper/

B.D. Colen: Colen, who began photographing professionally at age 17, when he covered the March on Washington for a local weekly newspaper, spent the bulk of his career as a writer, sharing a Pulitzer Prize for his medical coverage. B.D. taught documentary photography for 17 years at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and also taught at the Harvard University Extension School. His primary photographic interest is documenting everyday lives lived. He works in both film and digital. He is an American who has been living in London, Ontario, since 2016. https://www.bdcolenphoto.com/

Elizabeth van den Broeck: van den Broeck is the keeper of Huron County's loveliest secrets. Her way of telling them begins, invariably, with a camera and a pair of hip waders, as per custom in her quest for honest imagery. Her commitment to beauty in the unassuming reveals a lifelong love and understanding of her homeland, as well as a skill built upon by steady practice. An entrepreneurial artist of singular focus, Elizabeth studied Art at Sheridan College and Art History at the University of Toronto, only to miss the Class of 1992 graduating ceremonies to open her gallery in Goderich. Her tight-knit family has grown over the years, driving adaptation of media and method but lending strength of support to her endeavours. Elizabeth's award-winning body of work displays diversity from photography and print-making to oil and acrylics, encaustic and pastel work, the array has never muffled her artistic voice. Complexly-textured, unusually-lit subjects have never dissuaded her but instead become her trademark, as have clarity of colour and cleanness of stroke. https://elizabethsartgallery.ca/

Debra Friedman: Friedman is an established and internationally exhibited photographer and educator living in Toronto. She has a BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and an MFA from the Chicago Art Institute.

Stuart Heggie: Heggie is a life-long photography enthusiast. With an undergraduate degree in Astrophysics, it was a natural fit to merge his academic studies and his passion for photography. He began night sky photography in earnest more than 25 years ago. His primary area of focus in astrophotography is the Deep Sky, shooting through a crazy array of telescopes with film and purpose-built astronomy cameras. He also is enthusiastic about Skyscapes, night sky photos taken with film, DSLR and Mirrorless cameras and lenses. He currently uses a motorized tracking mount for his skyscape photos.  http://stuartheggie.com
