About: Karl Hronek photographer and writer
Some of my earliest memories were of our darkroom, quietly watching my father manipulating the enlarger, enduring the sour smell of the chemicals so I could watch the magic of the images appearing. It was from my father I first learnt the fundamentals of film photography. During the summers my family piled into our station wagon and criss crossing Canada and the USA from one national park to the next. By age of 12 we had visited all lower 48 state and all Canadian provinces. This instilled my love for the outdoors and excitement of venturing to somewhere for the first time. I have never been able to shake the restlessness of being in one place too long. I completing my BA at Capilano university in Vancouver, I worked as a territory sales manager for several national retail brands. My position allowed me to travel across the country and spend time in some truley remote locations. It also provided me with the income to afford photography trips, purchase professional equipment and eventually fund my first startup Liquid Studios. Today I have visited and photographed over 50 countries and have lived and worked in Vancouver, Miami, Palm Beach, Lahaina, Malaga Spain and currently reside in Prague.
