July's Feature Artist: Photographer Colin Chatfield

Colin Chatfield enjoys photography in general, but the night sky, macro, and landscapes are his favourite subjects. He has a desire to educate people about things in the world around us that many take for granted. 




Colin call himself a photo-artist, because in addition to taking pictures, he enjoys experimenting with them. He likes to experiment and try new (to him, at least) techniques. He doesn't like to follow the conventional photography rules.





Chatfield has created the Saskatchewan Aurora Hunters group, as well as creating and administering a number of other Facebook groups.







Colin Chatfield has had his work published in a number of articles, including, but not limited to:

- SkyNews Magazine
- Ottawa Citizen
- Vancouver Sun
- Saskatoon Star Phoenix
- Saskatoon Express
- CBC News Photos
- Huffington Post
- Prairies North Magazine
- NickelBelt News
- Saskatoon Sun
- Lifestyles Magazine
- Space.com
- Earthsky.com  






He has also won various photo contests such as the SSSP Photo Contest: 1st place and 2nd place and Canadian Photo Contest: Moving Water.







Being multi-talented Colin has also authored a children's book called If a Fish Had a Wish, which reached the number two and three spots in consecutive weeks on McNally Robinson's best-seller list.






Colin also teaches photography classes and holds photography workshops throughout the province as well as judging photo competitions, including those at Reflections of Nature.
