John Sylvester and Stephen DesRoches

There are very few places as photogenic as Prince Edward Island. With its sweeping landscapes, scenic vistas and miles upon miles of beaches, the Island is a haven for photographers. Taking advantage of potential stunning images of the Island in all seasons, two award-winning photographers know the best places to set up, when and how best to photograph each corner of the Island and how to get there. The thousands of visitors from all over the world who travel to the Island learn the secrets of these two seasoned experts.

John Sylvester is an internationally published travel, nature and landscape photographer based in Prince Edward Island. He specializes in photographing the people and places of Canada, with an emphasis on the Atlantic region. His work has appeared in Coastal Living, Yankee, Country Gardens, Canadian Gardening, Canadian Living, Canadian Geographic, Outdoor Photography Canada, Readers Digest, Saltscapes, Harrowsmith Country Life, and TIME. Awards for his work include Travel Media Association of Canada  awards and Northern Lights Awards from Canadian Tourism. He has published books including The Little Book of Prince Edward Island and Wild Island: Prince Edward Island’s Hidden Wilderness, both published by Acorn Press. 

Stephen DesRoches is a landscape and commercial photographer, born and raised in PEI. His primary focus revolves around the Island’s natural landscape. His interest in art began early with traditional painting styles and it was not until after installing his first computer image editing app, that he became interested in creating his art with a camera, trading in his inks, paints and brushes. His images have been published by Parks Canada, PEI Tourism, WelcomePEI, Canadian Tourism Commission and Outdoor Photography Canada

John Sylvester and Stephen Desroches will be launching A Photographer’s Guide to Prince Edward Island (Acorn Press) on June 8 at 7 pm at the Island Preserve Company in New Glasgow.
