About Samuel Binette

I was born in St-Hyacinthe, Quebec. As a kid, I grew up on les Iles de la Madelaine in the St-Lawrence Gulf and in the Seychelles Islands in Eastern Africa's Indian Ocean. I discovered photography in my early 20's back in Canada when I took an introduction class to film photography while studying computer sciences in college. After completing a certificate in social sciences and studying music for some time, I was drawn back visual arts and the medium of photography. In 2008, I graduated from the Professional Photography program of Dawson College in Montreal

Social behaviours and landscapes are two of my favourite subjects. I enjoy exploring my visual environment as well as how mankind interacts with it. I also like exploring the unpredictability of old (or cheap) film cameras.

Lately, I moved to Victoria BC where I’m surrounded by some of the countries most amazing landscapes and where life (and my inner-geekness) took me yet again on a different path. I still love going back to photography as a way to express and explore myself. This site is a collection of photographs I find represents my language. Volunteering: In the summer of 2008, I was involved in humanitary projects "the red hippo arts project" A collective of artists and educators teaching creative workshops, introducing the visual arts to impoverish children from the Namuongo slums on the outskirts of Kampala, Uganda.
