David T. Chapman Presents


David T. Chapman started doing photography at the age of 16. He is self-taught in the art of photography and has been pursuing his career professionally since the age of eighteen. He learned at a very young age from his father to appreciate his environment in the surrounding countryside. He enjoys taking photographs of weather phenomena, especially lightning, as well as scenery and nature. David likes to seek out unusual examples of nature such as albino robins, ice crystal formations and frozen water droplets. To date he has found multi-petalled Ontario trilliums, the highest of which had 33 petals. David is also a professional speaker and enjoys entertaining and educating a good crowd. His main areas of expertise are Weather/Aurora Borealis, Local Interests and Ontario Scenery of Ontario, Birds and Wildlife. Contact him for available times to book him. 

In the course of his work, David has studied meteorology, ornithology and the Northern Lights, also known as the Aurora Borealis, which can even be seen in the Niagara Region if the conditions are right. David likes to keep an open-mind about his subjects. He also insists that all his photographs are true originals and not fabricated in any way using computer technology. He produces his own prints and does his own framing in order to maximize quality, using acid-free and archival quality materials in all of his products. He offers his work printed on canvas as well as other fine art papers. Canvas offers the advantage of presentation without the need for glass. The Giclee Canvas process includes a protective coating to reduce the damaging effects of scratches and UV light. 

David has sold his works to clients around the world including Australia, China, Brazil and the United Kingdom as well as many other countries. His work is on display and available for sale at the Moses F. Rittenhouse Library in Vineland for the month of August, 2011, and on a regular basis at Brian D. Cruise's Chiropractic Office in Grimsby. He can be reached by email: dtchapmanpresents@gmail.com

Brian Chapman 

I was born in the town of Durham in Grey County, Ontario, Canada. Since 1960, I have had an interest in aircraft and have built both plastic model kits and many of my own models from scratch. My Mother, Aunt and Uncle all worked on the DH Mosquito at De Havilland Canada, the aircraft manufacturing company located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. My Father was in the Royal Canadian Air Force during and after World War II, leaving the service in 1947. As a young person, I grew up listening to my father and others talk about their experiences during wartime. I was also encouraged to remember my father's friends who were killed in action overseas.
I have studied the Battle of Britain, Bomber Command and specific aircraft for the purpose of model building and
for references in my art. The De Havilland Mosquito has been an in-depth, life-long personal study of mine. (The DH Mosquito was constructed entirely from wood and proved to be capable of much more than was originally thought.) I have also spent considerable time studying the Dambusters and have many of the main books on the subject.

I have been oil painting since 1975. In recent years (from 2000 onwards), I have devoted my time more specifically 
to oil painting World War II aircraft. These have included the Avro Lancaster, Handley Page Halifax, the DH Mosquito, and Supermarine Spitfire, but I have also painted the Short Sunderland, North American Harvard, Hawker Typhoon and the Avro Arrow.

I have studied the work of the present day, accomplished, British Aviation painters, although I believe I have my own distinctive style. I like to include detail in my work to create a realistic image.
