Wayne Hoecherl

PhotoHaus Gallery is pleased to announce The Portrait Sessions by Vancouver Photographer Wayne A. Hoecherl.

For the past year, Wayne has invited male subjects to participate in this ongoing series of black and white portraits, which has culminated in a collection of over 150 images. Wayne’s ability to connect with everyone on a personal level is immediately obvious when you see the strong characters that have revealed themselves in these portraits.

Wayne has been living and photographing in Vancouver for more than 25 years and is known for his imaginative portraits & photo illustrations, which are highlighted by his incredible technical knowledge.

A photographer, creator & educator, Wayne embodies all aspects of a true photographic artist. A sample of his work can be viewed at

We hope to see you out at PhotoHaus for the opening reception on Friday, March 13th!

This is a free event open to the public. Doors are from 7PM until Late. The photographer will be in residence.

“I love this photo – It is sensational. One of the strongest portraits made of me in a long time. Thank you!” - Douglas Kirkland

It is a difficult task to go from photographer to editor. Particularly when self-editing – there is always the danger of making subjective judgements. Equally, it is as challenging for us to remain objective when curating submissions at Photohaus.

We begin by considering the following; composition, mood, technique, style and execution. As well as (and particularly when considering nude photography) tone, texture, contrast and location. All of these are aspects we should consider when shooting or editing our photographs.

Below is a great example that ticks a lot of the boxes. The shot ‘Bonnie On The Floor’ is by the excellent Robert Farber. His work continues to influence photographers all over the world. You can see more of his photographs here:
