Mike Laking

Digital Photo Artist in Puerto Vallarta Mexico

I am an international award winning digital photo artist, specializing in mostly flowers and recently in landscapes, animals and people. Using computer graphics, free-hand drawing techniques, and my original photographs, I craft unique digital giclée photoart and create my own inimitable art.

My fine art giclée’s are individually printed to size, in small, limited editions using museum
quality archival inks, paper and canvas and are in collections across Canada, the United States, Europe, New Zealand and Mexico. Each limited edition print is signed and numbered.

I currently show at Incanto Vallarta, GAMA Showroom in Lake Chapala and in my private gallery at Casa Loretta. I participate in a couple of shows on a yearly basis, conduct workshops in Canada and Mexico, produce commissions and work at my art full time.

Awards include the international Grand Prize at the 2010 Puerto Vallarta Botanical Gardens Exhibition and Photography Contest and several at the Annual Ottawa Canada Orchid Show. At the 29th Annual Show in 2010, I won three awards: Honourable Mention; 1st Prize in Class; and Best in Class Orchid Photography. In 2011 at the 30th Annual Show I won 1st and 3rd Prize in Class; and Best in Class Orchid Photography. In 2012 at the 31st Annual Show, I won 1st Prize in Category, Best In Class Orchid Photography and Show Chair Choice Award. In 2013, at the 32nd Annual Show, I won 1st Prize in Category and Best In Class Orchid Photography, and finally, in 2014 at the 33rd Annual Show, I again won 1st Prize in Category and Best In Class Orchid Photography.
