Welcome to Culture Snap Photography,
Culture Snap offers vibrant images from the roads of Toronto to rural Tanzania as taken by me - Toronto documentary photographer Henry VanderSpek.
We are living in an extraordinary time. Please stay indoors, wash your hands frequently and avoid gathering in groups in order to halt the spread of COVID-19. This site from the Government of Canada, and this site from Johns Hopkins University, both provide excellent information and will help you care for yourself and others. Please take good care and stay well.
I recently published a blog of my Favourite Photo Moments of 2020. It was a challenging year, but I have much to be thankful for nonetheless. Thanks for looking!
I am preparing my Old World Shoes documentary project - about older shoe stores of Toronto - to be exhibited in the May 2021 Contact Photo Festival. Please stay tuned or contact me to be added to my email list, to be sure you don't miss an invitation to attend.
I am very thankful that my image of Kim's Convenience was featured in the final episode of the show. Click here to see the details on my Instagram account and here to see Kim's Convenience online. I loved this show and am so thankful for the opportunity.
I recently launched my new shopping site - ShopCultureSnap.ca! There you can find all of my pillows, bags and accessories for sale via an easy check-out process. All items are made in Canada and shipped directly to your home. Find gift ideas and support Canadian art at the same time!
If you are looking for someone to show the best of your special event, reveal your organizational mission in images and words, or document your non-profit work in Canada or overseas, look no further. I have over ten years experience capturing digital images, and many more shooting with film. You are welcome to read my bio, my blog post sharing my highlights of 2019, words from past clients, and/or view a selection of my published images. After doing so, send me an email and I'd be happy to discuss possibilities.
If you are looking for unique photo art - for your home, office or as a meaningful gift, please visit my art images. If you want suggestions, just contact me and I'd be happy to help you choose. I invite you to also visit my new site for photo art products - ShopCultureSnap.ca.
Best wishes to you for 2021!
