Sharon Tenenbaum

Sharon Tenenbaum, artist

Sharon was educated as a Civil Engineer in Israel, and practicing as a Professional Engineer in Vancouver Canada. In late 2007, she made a decision to part from engineering in order to pursue her passion for photography.  In a relative short period she has managed to define an artistic direction and distinctive style in her work, acquiring international recognition in the process.  Sharon has numerous fine art international awards and her work has been published in several magazines including National Geographic.  Combining her original background as a Civil Engineer, her work covers a wide gamut of subject matter from ‘in the moment’ Photojournalism to Fine Art Architectural Photography which is a perfect marriage of her engineering and artistic sides.

As a Photographer, Sharon is a self-taught artist, having learned her craft through personal research and practical experience behind the camera.  In her work she incorporates a Long Exposure technique to expand the expressive dimensions of her art.  Although an artist at heart, Sharon enjoys teaching and sharing with others her photography techniques and vision.  She teaches Fine Art Photography Workshops around the world (NY, Chicago, Melbourne and Vancouver) and has created multiple video tutorials and has written two ebooks. One on ‘How to Create Long Exposure Fine art Photography’ and the second: ‘Left & Right Brain, A photographers understanding of these mindsets and how the affect our visual interpretation of art’.
