About Peter Baumgarten
Peter Baumgarten is an award-winning professional photographer and educator based on Manitoulin Island where the stunning nature surrounding him inspires his work. He picked up his first camera at the age of 12 and was instantly hooked. Inspired by Canadian photographer, Freeman Patterson and his book, “The Art of Seeing” Peter is always striving to see the world in ways that most people miss. Peter regularly provides lectures and seminars on landscape, wildlife, and astrophotography and has been an OM SYSTEM Ambassador for ten years. As owner of Creative Island Photography, Peter has turned a life-long interest into a second career. His love of the craft has also become a great excuse to continue his other passion – exploring the great outdoors through wilderness camping, canoeing and kayaking. His work has been published in a number of magazines in both Canada and the United States including Canadian Geographic, Shutterbug, Outdoor Photographer, Popular Photography and others. Peter resides with his wife and the comings and goings of six adult children.
