Back in 1970, a young Michael Moster was inspired to buy his first camera and create his own darkroom after visiting a friend's, where he watched fascinating black-and-white images appear on blank photo paper. Seven years later, he went into the photography business full time. Moster developed a knack for capturing candid moments, and for making clients laugh. In 1994, he moved his business, Michael's Fine Photography, to a new studio on five acres in South Langley. Moster has received numerous awards for his work, such as the title "Master Of Photographic Arts" along with a Fellowship and Honourable Life Member status from the Professional Photographers of Canada—British Columbia; he also spent many years on the association's board of directors.
As photography went digital, Moster embraced these changes, becoming an expert in Photoshop and digital photo manipulation. These skills allow him to remove distracting background images from photographs, or perform “photographic surgery” on his clients themselves—delighting clients by taking years off their faces and delighting surrealists by swapping their heads with dinosaur skulls.
