I was very honored & thrilled to receive the Port Hope Chamber of Commerce award for 'Excellence in Small Business' last night at the Dale Wood Golf & Country Club here in Port Hope, Ontario.
Many thanks go out to the folks who nominated me and to my fellow small business owners & of course to my customers for which non of this would be possible.
Family torn apart!
Above is what a customer brought in to me the other day after grandma had her way with this old family photo (something set her off) and below is the result of a couple hours ($30 per) I love this kind of stuff.

“Down the rabbit hole” – that is the most concise summary of Bill Hornbostel’s path into photography. While he had studied painting and drawing as an undergraduate at Bard College, his path veered into the study of history, and subsequently meandered into teaching and editing. He exchanged the brush and canvas for the camera in that time, but it was only after a stint in graduate school that he made a concerted effort to dive into photography properly. In this endeavour, he has been largely self-taught, but he still recalls his earlier artistic training in his use of the camera.
His current work is in black and white architectural studies. These are created with a bent toward minimalist composition and the use of long exposure to heighten the contrast between static structures and changeable weather conditions. Other projects have included the use of infrared photography in landscapes, landscape images of Northern Ontario, and studies of the shore of Lake Ontario in winter.
He has been a member of the Colborne Art Gallery, and has exhibited in a number of events such as The Artist Project Toronto, the CONTACT Festival in Toronto, the SPARK Festival in Peterborough, and The New Art Festival in Ottawa.
