John Rayner is a Carleton Place photographer that has been living here since the fall of 2005, with his wife Susanne after moving from Sarnia where he taught high school for 30 years.
He chose to move here because this is where his daughter, Shauna Vaillancourt, had settled a year or two earlier. She works at a retirement residence in Bells Corners.
Since arriving in Carleton Place, two grandchildren have arrived on the scene for John and his wife. “It has been wonderful to be able to be near them like this” say John.
John has almost always had an interest in photography, but it was usually on the back burner. He has been able to follow this interest more since I retired. It helps that the digital era in earnest arrived since he retired as he enjoys developing photos on the computer.
John like doing landscapes, but anything outdoors in natural light is of interest.
You can get John’s prints at Simon Gold. They also have some unframed photos available. Currently, frames are priced at $100 and unframed prints at $60.
