Education Should be Fun!
Meet the team.
Darwin Wiggett and Samantha Chrysanthou are award-winning photographers and the founders of oopoomoo. They are creative partners in life and work and enjoy sharing their knowledge of all things photographic with the world. Renowned for their fun and accessible teaching style, Darwin and Sam emphasize creativity in their educational workshops and eBooks.
Stephen DesRoches is a designer, artist and photographer living on Prince Edward Island. He is also the person who cleans up our messy code, fixes things when we break them (thank goodness!) and encourages us to move beyond ‘post-it note’ technologies. Stephen is the genius behind our eBook design and a contributing author on oopoomoo.
Catherine Byram is, as they say, a true R.E.D. (retired and extremely dangerous). In her free time, she assists us in finding wandering workshop participants, ensures we are properly dressed and on-time, and even loans a much needed bunk from time-to-time! Catherine is an enthusiastic photographer who is always open to new adventures with the oopoomoo crew.
Being one of Canada’s premier wildlife and nature photographers doesn’t keep John E. Marriott from taking the occasional walk on the wild side with us here at oopoomoo! A bestselling author of five coffee table books, John is also the first contributing author on oopoomoo! John’s love of critters and ethical approach to wildlife photography are an inspiration.
Dave Brosha is a creative assignment photographer, artist, filmmaker and freelance writer who bravely calls the Canadian sub-Arctic home. He is also husband to a patient wife and dad to three lovely young children…demonstrating that the ‘good life’ and a successful photo business are possible! Dave is also a contributing author on oopoomoo.
