About

Peter Dušek is an award-winning Canadian fine art and architectural photographer. Benefitting from his deep understanding of light, composition, feeling and meaning from his work as an artist, combined with his experience documenting activities of people, his photographs of architecture show a strong feeling of place and space, often including people to give insights into how a building fits into people’s lives. Peter’s architecture photographs are of a documentary style inspired by world-renowned Dutch architectural photographer, Iwan Baan and Portuguese photographer Fernando Guerra.

Peter’s work has been used on corporate, business, film, charity, political, and federal government websites, advertisements, electronic tourism boards, business brochures, sell sheets, and has been seen in Air Canada’s EnRoute magazine, In The Hills magazine, In The Kingsway magazine, Toronto.com, 365Etobicoke.com,  as well as on Global TV news.

Peter was elected to the Ontario Society of Artists in 2015 and to the Society of Canadian Artists in 2016. He is also a proud member of the Rotary Club of Etobicoke, the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP), and the Town of Mono Heritage Advisory Committee.

Peter Dušek has received numerous Canadian and international awards for his minimalist toned black and white photographs, inspired by the Japanese philosophy of Zen and depicting elements of the Canadian landscape. He is represented as an artist by Toronto’s Abbozzo Gallery. His artwork can be viewed on his art website, peterdusek.com, and is in private and corporate collections including international companies, Saks Fifth Avenue, Global Furniture Group, and HLS Therapeutics Inc. Articles about his work have been published, such as Living In the Interval: Artist to Collect in Arabella Art, Architecture, and Design magazine. Of particular note, is his award for Best of 2015 by the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP) with professional members in over 30 countries.

Peter matches his artistic sense with the precision and rigour of technical expertise from 25 years of experience in building sophisticated computer database systems. This experience also makes him feel at home in the corporate environment. He strives to provide the highest quality of service and products possible.

He lives in Hockley Valley, Ontario, a short drive from the Greater Toronto Area. The surrounding nature allows him to hike, bicycle, canoe, ski, and snowshoe, often accompanied by his dog, Daisy. The beautiful scenery is often the inspiration for his stunning photographs.
