Lorna Rande is the Proprietor and Principal Photographer, Artist, and Graphic Designer for Artistic Imagery® in Vancouver, BC, Canada. Lorna’s passion is to photographically document the beauty she discovers. After 16 years of photography sales, in 2006, Lorna stepped into the digital realm with her new digital camera and Adobe Photoshop program. This began the learning curve in graphic design, which led to being commissioned to create personalized art gifts and cards, for; Graduations, Weddings, Baby’s Arrival, Dedications, Birthdays, and Retirement as well as Commercial Work.

Though it was 2004, it tells of her journey into photography and capturing beauty in 5 brief segments that total 16 minutes. One; Professional Journey / Two; Style and Works / Three; Passion and Inspiration / Four; Success and High Points / Five; Future Directions.
