Brian Comeau

Brian lives along the Atlantic Coast of Canada in New Brunswick on the Bay of Fundy with his wife and three children. His inspiration is drawn from the natural beauty of the Maritimes, with its picturesque landscapes, majestic coastlines and beautiful lakes and rivers. An active environmental advocate in his community; Brian works with several organizations to promote and protect the environment in his area as well as globally.

Locally he volunteers with several environmental organizations, participating in local water restoration projects and community beach clean-ups. Brian is also involved with grassroots community groups promoting clean air and sustainability in our communities. A highlight of Brian’s photographic journey has been the opportunity to work alongside Alexandra Cousteau and Blue Legacy’s Expedition Blue Planet 2010 and help document their visit to New Brunswick.

Brian’s photography is motivated by his love of nature and God’s creation.  The Bay of Fundy with its high tides, and rocky rugged coastlines is a favourite destination for Brian.  It is his sincere hope that as you view his images you marvel at God’s handiwork and take the time to appreciate and protect it.

  1. Brian,
    You list Ansel Adams and Galen Rowell as two of your favorites. I wish I could remember who to attribute the quote to, but it was “…each images exists in a single location, time, weather condition, and lens choice. Once anything in that equation changes, this images could not be made.” I try to remember that whether I’m imaging flowers or parks. I can almost feel the cold im your images. I really like the black and white work too. Doug Clark

  2. Twenty years ago we sailed across the Atlantic in our 36ft sailboat from the Bristol Channel in the UK, which has the second highest tidal range in the world (but only by a few inches), to the Bay of Fundy which has the highest tidal range in the world (but only by a few inches)!!

    We experienced thick fog, and heard the expression “fog so thick you could sit on the boat’s rail and lean back against it. But careful, the weather changes so quick here that the fog could lift, and you’d fall right in.”

    Please, have I remembered the quotation correctly? And are the fogs still as thick? We have a painting of the Bay in sunny weather hanging in our sitting room to remind us of all the marvellous times we had over there, and wonderful friends we made.

    Discovering your superb photos takes us right back.Thank you,
    Jenny Collingridge, Bristol, England.

    • Jenny Thank you so much for connecting. It is so nice to hear from someone far away but still with a connection to the Bay of Fundy. I also wasn’t aware that you had such high tides on your side. Thanks for educating me.

      My wife likes to refer to the fog as pea soup so your analogy sure works. The fog horn still gets a good workout down the beach. You are correct too, that the weather does change quickly.

      If you would like to see more images from the area you may wish to have a look at my website or my Facebook page. http://www.duckcovephotography.ca or http://www.facebook.com/DuckCovePhotography . You just might see some more memories from your trip which sounds like it was quite the excursion. Not so sure how I would make out on that. 🙂

      Thanks again. You made my day!

    • Jenny Collingridge. Luckily I came across your email to Brian Comeau while looking at his wonderful photo’s. I often wondered where you would end your travels and it seems you are back in Bristol! We now live in Hampshire; do reply to my email and catch up on all the family news. Dick and Sally Sizeland

  3. I don’t remember if I ever asked you whether you might be a (possibly distant) relative of Wess Comeau, a photographer I used to know in Austin. He was originally from Florida, I believe, and he was killed at around the age of 30 in a car accident here in 1977. I still have one of his framed photographs on the wall in my house. Comeau is a common enough French name that there’s no reason to assume a connection, but there’s no harm in asking.

    • You haven’t asked. Sorry I don’t know the name. All my Comeau relatives are from the Digby area (Comeauville) in Nova Scotia. I will do some Googling on him for sure. Thanks for asking.

  4. I happened to be at the SJ Airport last night the 26th and to my delight saw your photo’s of Saint John ,NB and various places in NB . displayed onscreen . I love SJ for many reasons and you’ve captured those reasons on camera . Not only do we live in one of the most beautiful countries and province in the world but your photographs also depict why the N.B license plate logo was always “The Picture Province “. Shame on us to allow that to be changed to a logo that doesn’t describe NB . Thank you and I look forward to future endevours . Jan Hamm ,Saint John , NB

    • Thank you Jan for taking the time to look and to take the time to comment. That was very nice of you and I really appreciate it.

      P.S. We do live in an amazing place and are very lucky.

  5. Brian,
    I greatly admire your photography. I am an artist as well but my medium is oil painting. I found a fabulous photograph of yours taken in flat light in the snow. It’s a bank of rocks but no clear definition of shape, more of a suggestion. I was hoping you might allow me to incorporate a bit of this photo into a painting of a dead crow. I too love nature in my work and I think there I a suggestion of purity in death with what I’m trying to convey…plus I am fascinated with crows.
    Please let me know if this would be agreeable. It’s a piece only for me.
    In Him, Sandra Pickering

    • Hi Sandra,

      Thank you for the note and for asking permission. I really appreciate. Please feel free to use the image for your work. Look forward to seeing your final piece.
