What Lies Beneath


What Lies Beneath

Presenter: Margaret Hines


Margaret Hines is a self-taught Whitby-based photographer and has been shooting professionally since 2006. After dabbling with weddings, family portraiture, maternity shoots and corporate head-shots, she soon discovered after extensive research that shooting underwater fantasy and fine art portraiture, with its post-production peccadillos and particularly unique results, offered exactly the challenging new type of photographic expression she’d been searching for. Margaret is a Full Member of Professional Photographers of Canada (PPOC), holding a Craftsman of Photographic Arts (CPA) and a PPOC accredited judge. Her works have appeared in or been featured by Vistek Canada, Scotiabank Contact Magazine, Applied Arts Magazine, Epson Canada and Elaine Fleck Gallery, and have received a number of national and international awards. Margaret is also a Canadian Ambassador for Ikelite Underwater Housing Systems. Margaret will discuss the technical, safety and creative challenges that influence her underwater photography.
