Hi there! Welcome to Shop Culture Snap!
My name is Henry VanderSpek, and I am a Toronto art and documentary photographer. I created Culture Snap Photography in 2011 because I love vibrant cultural expression. My 15+ years working with non-profit organizations and my 9+ years experience creating art and documentary imagery have only deepened my love for capturing unique moments and scenes.
Shop Culture Snap offers art photo products designed to provide lasting enjoyment. The images I share here are ones that I captured while pursuing my own creative vision, and which have received strong positive feedback from people who have seen them in galleries, art shows and online venues. Each item I offer is made in Canada with quality materials and craftsmanship.
I normally participate in 8-10 art shows each year where I show and sell my art. That is of course not possible this year, given the pandemic we are living through. I do miss the wonderful personal interaction and conversations I have at each of these shows. I always meet such interesting people and hear great stories about life in Toronto, often about the places that I have captured in my photos.
Thankfully I can now share my work with you through this new site. If you have any questions, please let me know. If you would like to see a wider range of my photos that are available as prints (some of which may end up as art products on this site one day!) please visit the art section of my main site at www.culturesnap.ca/art.
I have some of my art products available for local delivery, so if you live in Toronto, or will be here for a visit, and want to avoid waiting for mail delivery, please send me a message and we can work out a local delivery or pick-up.
Thanks for visiting! Stay safe and stay well!
