In his teens Manfred G. Kraus discovered photography through the use of the legendary medium format twin lens film camera Rolleiflex. He graduated in Germany as a Lithographer and installed the first digital “Photo Drum Scanner” in Vancouver Canada.

Later as a founder of Tri-Scan Colour he serviced the printing industry with colour separations and film products. His extensive experience in analog film photography has been a benefit to incorporate and switch to digital photography now.

The spectacular Vancouver cityscape and raw beauty of British Columbia’s landscape inspired him to capture these views in a panoramic format. With his newest robotic panorama equipment, Manfred creates super high resolution stitched photos capable of being transformed into large prints up to 8’ on canvas, photo paper and a high end version “AcrylArt”, a glass mounted print. All Giclée art prints are individually imaged on his 10 colour Epson Pro Printer for highest possible results and signed by MG Kraus.

Technology and camera are part of the equation but intentional thoughts of view, angle, lighting, patience and a good eye makes all the difference to create this magical moment in time. Manfred want’s to share his impressions with you to decorate your home or office.

His photography and artworks can be seen at the WhiteOcean Gallery on Granville Island, the Lloyd Gallery in Penticton and other Vancouver framing galleries.
