Bio

Elisabeth La FontaineElisabeth La Fontaine was born in Ceylon, (now Sri Lanka), daughter of a tea-planter. During her early life her father, a keen photographer with his own darkroom, tried everything he could to encourage Elisabeth to learn to use a camera. He hit a brick wall! She had ZERO interest in mastering apertures and shutter speeds in the days of Rolleiflex and Rolleicord film cameras!

Educated in Scotland Elisabeth subsequently lived in England and in 1977 the wanderlust hit her. She emigrated to Canada with her family and has since travelled extensively across Canada, the USA, Japan and Europe, mostly on business. She attended OCAD and leaned to draw and paint but gradually she developed a latent interest in photography.

The move to Grafton in 2003 offered a wealth of opportunity for photography and with the help of courses, books, the internet and members of NPC, Elisabeth now, thanks to Cindy Taylor, understands apertures and shutter speeds!!!

Elisabeth is working on mastering Photoshop with the aim of restoring old, faded and damaged photos,  creating Personalized Photo-Books and taking photographs of special occasions in the community.

Using the Photo Viewer on the members' pages
Hover over an image to access controls.  You can also click the thumb to view a particular photo. Move your mouse away from the image to remove the controls.

Members who want their own page should submit 8 photos (although a few more is OK if you want) and a bio to the Communications Director.  Photos should be at least 400 pixels in each dimension - more is better but they will be reduced to 400 for this page - although you can request larger if you like.  All photos the same size works better in this viewer but it's not critical.
