Jane Cass Nature and Landscape Photographer
Originally a Nova Scotia native, Jane now calls Ottawa home. A self-taught, award winning, nature and landscape photographer, she enjoys and embraces the diversely rich vistas primarily of eastern Ontario.
Using what could be called Digital Impressionism, through the use of light, patterns and texture she evokes an emotional bond between the viewer and her work. Whether it’s capturing the aura of serenity of a centuries old farm, local wildlife, the cloaked secrets of a morning mist, or the history laden stones of bridges and abandoned houses, Jane has often wandered down roads less traveled.
Taking an early retirement in 2012 has allowed her to spend at least three days a week traveling the dirt roads and back country of rural Ontario connecting with nature, capturing the scenery and vanishing landscapes – doing what she loves.
Jane actively exhibits with and participates in numerous other associations, art guilds etc. including ; Arteast, Arts Network Ottawa, Arts Carleton Place , Capital Artisans Guild, Cumberland Farmers’ Market , Ottawa Artisans Guild, Nepean Fine Arts League, and West Carleton Arts Society
“The quote from Don McCullin “Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.” seems to express the inherent connection I want people to sense when looking at my work.
