About Gary Nylander

I have joined Patreon inspired by the great artist, Leonardo Da Vinci, after studying his remarkable life, I was struck by his great curiosity and how he lived on patronages from kings and rulers, those with the finical means of his day. Leonardo's final patron, King Francis I of France allowed Leonardo to just be Leonardo and do as he pleased with his art and to allow his curiosity to flourish.

I too have a great sense of curiosity as I have been passionately photographing Western Canadian landscapes, mostly British Columbia for the past 30 years with my view camera. My work takes a lot of time, financial expenses for travel, film, and dedication of the heart. I think that's what makes all artists great, a sense of curiosity of the world around us which at times need nourishment from outside sources.

As I approach my 60's I am looking for new ways to help with my costs and related expenses to allow me to continue with my work. Thank you for visiting my Patreon page and I hope you will take some time to explore my photography.

Finally, if anyone wishes to contact me who has not found the usual connections through my Facebook link, I would love to hear from you. My email is [email protected] or by phone including text at 778-853-8523. My website is also open for review which can be found at

After more than 40 years as an awarding winning newspaper photographer, I am on a new path.

My first and immediate goal is to be able to make a living from my fine art photography either through the generosity of patrons of the arts like those on Patreon here and some print sales. This would allow me to spread my wings with my fine art photography and see where it might go.

One of my grand visions is to create a pop-up art gallery where I can rent space, display my photographs or even the art of others, with all costs paid for through Patreon. Those costs include printing and framing of photographs and finding a place to rent in a vibrant area in places where I live or travel through on a regular basis in the cities of Kelowna, Vancouver, and Victoria, B.C, Canada.

If successful my long-term goal would also be to give back to struggling artists who I seek out and admire here on Patreon.

Thank you for those that share my vision and goals.
