Entrepreneurs Among Us
An anthropologist of imagery, wildlife photographer Erin Shipley sifts through the spectacular natural environment surrounding the shores of Lake Simcoe and beyond, capturing and revealing to her audience rare glimpses into Mother Nature’s private moments.
On display in several galleries throughout the GTA, and the highlight of many personal collections, Erin’s pieces are crisp and fresh, depicting with innocence and honesty the intricate perfections of the unchained wild — from the grandfatherly stance of the Great Blue Heron to the chubby-cheeked playfulness of the Wood Duck.
From the time Erin relocated to gorgeous Georgina, she was enchanted with the seemingly endless abundance of wildlife indigenous to the area and began photographing these living treasures for personal entertainment, and soon the entertainment of family and friends.
It wasn’t long before her audience grew
and her photographic exposés began to
have an audience all their own.
Travel in Canada, the U.S.A., South
America, and Europe, has further enabled
Erin to hone her craft, providing her with
valuable eye-witness experiences while
rewarding her by spotlighting an intoxicating
spectrum of wildlife species worthy of tribute.
Keeping her craft a true testament to her
subjects, Erin is strong in her belief that
there is no room for photographs of captive
creatures in the world of wildlife photography.
Like her inspirations, her work is never
digitally altered, and exemplifies pure
enjoyment while revering non-distilled

With the gift of observation and
her easy way of mingling, Erin
does get requests to photograph
other subjects and events.
