The Artist

In his teens Manfred G. Kraus discovered photography through the use of the legendary medium format twin lens film camera Rolleiflex. He graduated in Germany as Lithographer and installed the first digital "Photo Drum Scanner" in Vancouver Canada.

Later as a founder of Tri-Scan he serviced the printing industy with colour separation and film products. His extensive experience in analog film photography has been a benefit to incorporate and switch to digital photography now.

"Technology and camera are part of the equation but intentional thoughts of view, angel, lighting, patience and a good eye makes all the difference to create this magical moment in time.
