Tracy Munson is a rainbow haired, wine drinking, nature-loving, bunny hugging, award-winning Canadian nature and pet photographer. While living in Toronto, Tracy took every opportunity to escape the city and her rewarding but stressful job in one of the country's largest Animal Shelters. For many years, she travelled Canada in a tiny car, with a large man, a tent, and two chihuahuas. After seeing it all, Atlantic Canada kept drawing her back and in 2018 she escaped city life for good, relocating to beautiful Albert County, NB to pursue photography full time. Now she lives in an old house with acres of land and a fantastic view.
With her bold and vibrant images, Tracy strives to capture fleeting moments of extraordinary beauty, with a focus on recreating the mood and feeling of being there in the moment. Endlessly inspired by the wonders of the vast Canadian wilderness, she hopes her work will encourage others to explore the beauty in their own backyards.
So far, Tracy has achieved Professional Accreditations in Pictorial/Scenic Photography, Ornithology/Bird Photography, Animal Portraits, Canine Portraiture, Feline Portraiture, and Wildlife Photography. Her work has been published in books, calendars, and magazines and has been displayed in galleries, including the prestigious McMichael Canadian Art Collection. In 2018, she won the coveted title of Photographic Artist of the Year in the Professional Photographers of Canada Atlantic Region, also claiming Best Overall, Best Pictorial Scenic, Best Fine Art, and 2 Judge’s Choice Awards. She was the winner of the Tibor Horvath Award of Excellence in the Professional Photographer's of Canada, Ontario Branch Image Competition in 2016 and has had several images score well in the National image Salon, even winning an Excellence, a Judge's Choice, and a Best In Class in the Pictorial/Floral category in the 2017 Competition. She also writes photography articles for websites and blogs, including the popular Improve Photography website and is a founding member of the Photographer's Co-operative.
