ARTISAN: Jane Cass
BUSINESS: Jane Cass Photographs
Originally a Nova Scotia native, Jane now calls Ottawa home. A self-taught, award winning, nature and landscape photographer, she enjoys and embraces the diversely rich vistas primarily of eastern Ontario.
A career as a health professional has served to enhance her photographic process – attention to detail, patience, and flexibility, qualities she calls upon to shoot, create and present her images.
Using what could be called Digital Impressionism, through the use of light, patterns and texture she evokes an emotional connection between the viewer and her work. Whether it’s capturing the aura of serenity of a centuries old farm, local wildlife, the cloaked secrets of a morning mist, or the history laden stones of bridges and abandoned houses, Jane has often wandered down roads less traveled.
In order to pursue her photography full time, Jane took an early retirement in 2012. Making this decision has allowed her to spend at least three days a week traveling the dirt roads and back country of rural Ontario connecting with nature, capturing the scenery and vanishing landscapes – doing what she loves.
