Tracy Munson is an award-winning Canadian Nature and Pet Photographer, with professional accreditations in Canine Portraiture, Ornithology/Bird Photography, and Scenic/Pictorial photography. She loves to escape to the Canadian wilderness, whenever she can get some time away from her rewarding but stressful job caring for pets and wildlife in one of the country's largest and most progressive Animal Shelters.
Her 25 years of experience as an Animal Care Worker and Veterinary Technician make Tracy uniquely qualified to work with animals who may be shy or fearful. The families she works with are frequently surprised and delighted by the beautiful pet portraits she is able to create by applying a little patience and understanding of animal behaviour.
Tracy's work has been published in books, calendars, and magazines and has been displayed in galleries, including the prestigious McMichael Canadian Art Collection. She was the winner of the Tibor Horvath Award of Excellence in the Professional Photographer's of Canada, Ontario Branch Image Competition in 2016 and was awarded one Accepted, one Merit, one Excellence, a Judge's Choice, and a Best In Class in the Pictorial/Floral category in the 2017 National Image Competition. She also writes photography articles for websites and blogs, including the popular Improve Photography website. She currently resides in Toronto, with a large man, two tiny dogs and a Persian cat named Stompin' Tom.
