louise tanguay ~ artist bio


Louise Tanguay has an original and very personal approach to nature.

Her photography has won numerous prizes. She has had multiple exhibitions and has been published in prestigious magazines and newspapers throughout the world.

She has authored articles for the magazines Photo Life and Photo Sélection, and her illustrated talks are always much appreciated by the public.

Louise Tanguay has published a dozen works, including two coffee-table books, NATURA and FLORA at Editions de l’Homme in France and Canada. Over 10,000 copies of NATURA were sold. Between 2002 and 2004, she produced a series of guide books on gardens in Quebec. One of them, The Reford Gardens, immediately became a best-seller and was followed by Treasures of the Reford Gardens in the spring of 2006. Jewels of Hawai’i, a book on Hawaiian gardens, was published in 2010.

For the past several years, Louise Tanguay has offered instructional workshops and has led groups of photographers on foreign trips. Hawaii, Paris, Tuscany, Morocco, and Namibia are among her recent destinations. She has taught at the International Summer School of Laval University in Percé from 2005 to 2013. 

Originally from Hearst in northern Ontario, she now works out of Gatineau in the Ottawa region. See also: www.louisetanguayphoto.ca
