Photo-Art by Neil de Boer

About – Neil de Boer

Based in the Village of St. Jacobs I am blessed with the opportunity to photograph a wide variety of subject matter. I also love to explore our “Global Village” taking photographs where ever I go.  My favorite subjects are Landscape, Architecture and Artifacts. I use a variety of techniques and software tools to create what I saw in my minds eye when I took the photo.  I think we all have something in us that loves to create and then share it. Thank’s for coming to have a look at my work. If you would like to purchase a print on canvas, premium paper or even aluminum contact me at

I like the way artist Paul Klee put it.
Art does not reproduce the Visible; Rather,
It makes

  1. Hi Neil, I nominated you to take part in the TravelSupermarket. com Capture the Colour competition. I’m sorry it’s such short notice as the closing date is tomorrow but perhaps you can get an entry together from your archives. Best of luck!

  3. Nice HDR work, Neil.

    It’s been a couple years since I’ve been to St. Jacobs. I’ve done a little street photography there. Just a little.

    • Thanks. It’s funny – I live in St. Jacobs but go to Toronto to do street photography. I have done some at the market. Will have to give it another try.

  11. Love the picture and the quote by Paul Klee! Thank you for the follow. Please be aware that my blog is a bilingual one. So you may get links to some poems in English as well as to some in Italian…I’m trying to keep the posting balanced between the two languages. Keep up the good work.

  12. Thanks Anna. I appreciate the fact that you are posting in both languages and not translating. I think you are right that translations lose something.
