It was only  several years ago in Toronto, Ontario, that Lance McClurg’s husband, Peter,  gifted him with his first viable camera. McClurg was immediately impressed with  the product quality, and the results, and his passion to implement his  perspective accrued with the photographical “reality” increased. Experimenting  on assorted subjects with disparate angles and lighting, he discovered an  aesthetic style that registers with him and garners critical praise. Walking  around town almost on a daily basis, McClurg is on a hunt for images that reek  of moodiness – in life and architecture.
His talent for presenting architectural aspects of buildings in new light,  and giving emotional overtones to cityscapes imbue his portfolio with a sense of  the epic, majestic and the bold. He credits his success with his pursuit to  deliver the energy and bustle of city life in silent and still images.
McClurg’s photography has been published in the recent “2013, State of  the Art.”
