Biography:

Vincent Pigeon enjoys cycling and hiking, two pastimes which permit him to engage in his favourite hobby, photography. He first experimented with photography on a trip to Europe in 1973 and has since then rarely been seen without a camera. Over the years, he has been an avid student of the art, taking numerous courses and workshops through the Vancouver School Board and other groups, learning from such well-known Vancouver photographers as Ron Long, John Heckerott, Paul Fremes, Dave Montizambert, Martin Hatfield, Nancy Chu, Jim Britton and Carolyn Sullivan. A large part of his library consists of photography magazines, text and photo books and other materials he has gathered, read and re-read over the years in his ongoing study of the art.

Photographs:

With excellent instruction and a keen eye, Vincent has succeeded over the years to accumulate a collection of beautiful landscape and travel photos. He is particularly proud of "Nine O'Clock Gun", a double exposure of a full moon over a firing of the cannon that is detonated at nine o'clock every evening in Vancouver, B.C's Stanley Park. He has excelled at reflections, of buildings off other buildings, and of structures and boats off water. He is also very pleased with his candid photos of children. The photo "Karate Kid" was selected for the front cover of the Roundhouse Community Centre's (in Vancouver) Summer 1998 catalogue. Please click on the photographs to enlarge them and obtain further details about them. Framed or unframed copies may be purchased.

Artwork Photography:

Vincent's wife is artist Won-Hee Gowen. In 1992, Vincent started photographing her work to build her portfolio. With considerable experimenting and excellent instruction from Kees Fransbergen and Janice Robertson, Active Member and Senior Member respectively of the Federation of Canadian Artists, he refined the art of photographing artwork, in both print and slide formats. Slides of Won-Hee's figures Patricia, Colleen and Jose, photographed by Vincent, were presented to the Federation of Canadian Artists and selected by the Federation's jury for exhibits at the Federation Gallery on Granville Island in Vancouver, B.C. As a result of her presentation of "Patricia", Won-Hee achieved "Active Member" status with the Federation of Canadian Artists. Please review samples of these photographs in the Artwork Photography section of Vincent's Photo Gallery and by going to Won-Hee Gowen's website.

In January 2000, Vincent was asked to photograph artwork owned by Michel Dejaegher, Consul General of France in Vancouver, for an exhibit of some of his collection of artwork at the Alliance Francaise in Vancouver. A few of those photos are in Vincent's gallery of photos.

On August 31, 2000, Vincent was the official photographer for the Federation of Canadian Artists' AIM for Arts gala at Granville Island. A number of the photos taken that evening can be seen in the Federation's October and November, 2000, issues of its monthly newsletter.
