Limited Edition Prints

My passion has always been to sell my photographs as Limited Edition Prints and now, the time has come! My online store is LIVE!

Currently there are two options available:

The first is an Edition of 20 for 8 x 12 inch prints.

The second is an Edition of 15 for 12 x 18 inch prints.

Both are printed on Hahnemühle Fine Art Paper. The texture is subtle and to me, the rich colours remind me of velvet. Each print is hand signed and numbered by yours truly.

I know when I opened a print store I wanted each order to be special, unique and a connection between me and the future print owner. So, for each order I am going to share a story with you about the photograph. It might be a secret about the image, a story I came up with to bring the photograph to life or it could be a little truth about myself, a memory of mine that inspired the image.

I hope to share my stories with you all and to inspire you in your own endeavors.

If you have any questions feel free to contact me and I'll answer them as soon as possible!

All the best,

Sam Kaczur

Europe 2014

On Tuesday evening, I will be at the Vancouver International Airport, heading back to Europe. A place that I promised to myself that I would return-- and for longer.

It was 6 years ago that I went to Germany, Italy and Greece. Back then I was fully invested in my graphite and pencil art. I went there to be inspired by the architecture, the art and the history that I so loved. I had brought with me a trusty point and shoot camera to take reference images for future paintings and drawings. I was determined to document every moment while I was there. And I did. 1500+ images later and I was back in Canada. 

When I saw my family waiting for me at airport arrivals, it was my Dad who just looked at me and knew that I had left my heart back in Europe.  I did. I felt like I got a taste of a place that had so many hidden mysteries left for me to discover. 

During that trip, I realized that photography was more than just a way to document my travel experiences, it was an art form as well. The statues changed as I moved around them, the angle that I shot the cathedrals made them come alive. I became obsessed with telling a story through those images. I realized the mystery of the camera, the power of creating images starting with just click of a button and the infinite possibilities photography had to bring my ideas to light.

I continued to create pencil art but slowly, my heart was drawn to the curious object of the camera. I went out and started taking photographs, self portraits and eventually I started asking friends. Before going to Europe I would have told you that photography was not an interest of mine, I saw no future in it for me. Without Europe, I wouldn't have discovered an art form that I feel at home with.

Now, I am returning to Europe to have a longer conversation with her and the art that inspired me so much. It is a trip to not only document more inspiration, but a trip of soul searching-- a creative soul searching. I want to see how these experiences will influence my future work, the plans I have laid out. The next 38 days will be a roller coaster of love, of art, of inspiration and of endless possibilities. 

I am looking forward to sharing my journey with you! 

All the best,
