Vic Panei, 1940 to present, was born, raised and educated in Italy. Vic immigrated to Canada in 1966 and has been a Calgary resident working in the oil industry as a geologist, retiring in 2003. Since 2010 Vic has been living on Columbia Lake in Fairmont Hot Springs, British Columbia.
The outdoors and photography have been Vic's lifetime passion. His first purchase on credit in Canada was a Pentax Spotmatic II camera in 1967.
During his first twenty years in Canada, Vic dedicated most of his photography to his son and daughter during their growing years. In the last twenty years, and particularly now that he has retired from work, the outdoors has been his main photographic focus.
Vic is a keen (almost a fanatic) cyclist, hiker, scrambler and snowshoer. On his trips, he never leaves home without his camera.
Vic hopes you will enjoy looking at his pictures as much as he enjoyed taking them.
