Lori Cattoni (Kerr) was born in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada. She grew up enjoying numerous outdoor activities with friends and family. After graduating from Grantham High School, she enrolled in the Medical Laboratory Technologist program at Mohawk College.
After working in various Toronto Hospitals, Lori moved to Parry Sound for a change of pace. Trips to Chinatown and coffee houses were replaced with kayaking adventures and hikes along the rocky shores of Georgian Bay.
In 2006, she strapped her Kayak on top of her car and moved to Kelowna, British Columbia, where she worked as a lab technologist. Shortly after moving, inspired by the beauty of British Columbia, she purchased a Nikon DSLR. Lori’s photography showcases her interest in nature.
She resided in Yellowknife from 2008 to 2012 and worked at the Stanton Territorial Hospital. Presently, she is living in the beautiful Okanagan Valley in Kelowna.
Daniel Cattoni was born in Bülach, a small community, located a short hop from Zurich, Switzerland. He spent his youth in various places in the province of Zurich.
At eighteen years of age, he graduated from the Kantonsschule Zürcher Unterland in Bülach. In the fall of 1988 he moved to New Brunswick on the east coast of Canada and obtained a Bachelor of Science in Physics, followed by a Bachelor of Education from the University of New Brunswick in 1993 and 1994 respectively.
During this time he got interested in photography. He is fully self taught and never took a course in photography. He has read may books about photography and did his own black & white darkroom work.
He has worked at the Community College in Moncton, and taught Calculus and Physics at Bonar Law School in Rexton, New Brunswick. In December of 2001, he resigned from his teaching position and acquired a commercial pilots licence. In 2002 he got rid of all his traditional film based 35mm equipment and switched completely to digital. “I have not regretted this move and it has saved me a considerable amount of developing, but not printing costs” he says. His latest endeavours are in aerial photography and panoramics.
Daniel moved from Upper Rexton, New Brunswick to Kelowna, British Columbia in the summer of 2003. He relocated again in the spring of 2008 to join the gang at Buffalo Airways in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories. In late 2012, he moved back to Kelowna but still works for Buffalo Airways.
