BIOGRAPHY

While in business, I had a dream of someday having a second career as a fine art photographer. I had always been keenly interested in the arts, and in particular photography. In the mid 1990’s I decided to realize my dream and enrolled in Ryerson University’s continuing education program in photography studies, graduating in 1999. Since then I have worked extensively with both film and digital, and have shown and sold my work at numerous [solo and group] exhibitions in Toronto and throughout central and southern Ontario.

Passionate about photography as an art form Peter states, “My recent work has been quite varied, ranging from the abstract and the interplay of line, shape and form to the landscape often created with composite images combined for effect.” Adamson works extensively in film and digital media and has exhibited his work in a variety of venues and competitions throughout Ontario (winning first prize at the Neilson Park Creative Centre juried art show ‘Impact 2009’).
