Media Contact: Dulcie Smith –

John Bonner will be the guest speaker at the Comox Valley Horticultural Society meeting on May 15. John will share his expertise on the best way to take photos of a garden, focusing on light, colour, focal point, composition, background and shape.

John ran a portrait photography studio in Toronto before beginning his career as a freelance photojournalist. In 1987 he won a ‘Photo of the Year’ award with the Toronto Sun. He spent many years in Banff, Alberta initially to manage a one-hour film lab but later he joined a wedding and portrait studio and from there Bonner Photography was born.

John and his team have been pioneers in digital photography and videography. John continues to work in Alberta with existing and new clients but his base is now the Comox Valley where he offers photo and video services to companies, couples, families and community not-for-profits.
