Drew Williamson is a Toronto-based commercial photographer. He has lived in Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia. At an early age, while living in Alberta, he developed a strong interest in photography. He chose to study Marine Biology at the University of Victoria but after completing first year he decided to pursue the study of his first passion – photography – and returned to Ontario to attend Ryerson.

After graduating from Ryerson most of his career has been spent in the commercial photography world. He has returned to what originally attracted him to photography – his passion for expressing a story in a medium that transcends the barriers of the written or spoken word. He is constantly examining his vision of the world through his photography while also exploring our collective humanity. Since pursuing this passion, his personal work has been selected for juried exhibitions in both Canada and the U.S.

Drew’s work has been seen in a number of exhibitions since 2008. Solo Exhibitions have included Aerial Exhibitions at Gallery 814 (2009); Aerial Photographs and Crushed at the Georgina Gallery (2011). Group exhibitions have included participation in two previous Gallery 44 Members’ exhibitions: Insight in Contact 2013 and Photopia. Other group exhibitions in which his work has been shown were Mistletoe Magic, John B. Aird Gallery (2013), Vaughan Juried Exhibition, City Playhouse (2010), Salon Show (Invited Guest), Propeller Gallery (2010), Our Environment; the Good, the Bad and the Ugly (Juried Group Exhibition), College of Fine Art Photography, Fort Collins, Colorado (2008).

Drew received an Honourable Mention in Nikon Canada’s 1977 Response & Recognition contest. He is a member of CARFAC Ontario and Gallery 44.
