Olivier Du Tré is a fine art photographer based out of Calgary, Alberta.
After graduating as a graphic designer in 1998, Du Tré found his passion after enrolling in a three-year photography program at KISP in Ghent, Belgium. During this time, Olivier immersed himself in film cameras, darkroom printing techniques and black and white photography, all of which continue to play a huge role in his work today.
After seven years of traveling back and forth, Olivier decided to make Canada his permanent home in 2009.
“The move was a product of passion. I wanted to be closer to the subject matter that I found so intriguing. The majestic Rocky Mountains on one side, and the wide open spaces of the Prairies on the other. I really like the compliment/contradiction of man and nature. There’s a unique symmetry to it all.”
