A graduate of the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, Eric Boutilier-Brown has taught photography in one form or another since 1995, covering topics ranging from archival issues with historical photographs to advanced techniques in digital post production. Having a rich blend of experience with both general and fine art photography, and his feet firmly in both the analogue and digital world, allows Eric to share a well balanced perspective on this fascinating art form.

Since he began taking photographs over 35 years ago, the craft and art of photography has never ceased to amaze and enthrall him.



Eric Boutilier-Brown has been a guest presenter at Acadia University, the Centre for Arts and Technology
, the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and the University of Maine, and has taught credit classes at the Nova Scotia Community College (Waterfront Campus), the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design and Eastern College.

From 2006-2022, Eric provided photographic courses through Carsand-Mosher, Henrys, and ViewPoint Gallery. In those 16 years, over 220 photo courses and workshops were provided to over 2000 students.


From 2002-6, Eric was the primary education designer and presenter for Carsand-Mosher Photographic in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, and in 2008-9, Eric provided his customized courses through the Halifax location of Henry's.

In addition to pursuing his own photography, Eric Boutilier-Brown has owned and operated a private photo lab specializing in historical reproductions and documentation for the Nova Scotia Government, and has worked in photo retail for the two largest photo stores in Eastern Canada. This experience and knowledge blends to give him a broad range of photographic skills for both the commercial and fine art world.
