Born and raised in Estevan, Saskatchewan, Canada, Byron Fichter is a self taught Photographer. Interested in landscape photography, his seemingly "otherworldly", award winning shots instantly gain attention with art collectors. Most notably is his stunning work with his 2015 collection Abandoned.
A defining moment for Fichter came when he teamed up with Art Concepts Custom Framing in Estevan, Saskatchewan. Fichter's work now proudly features museum quality framing, and can be seen on display on the Art Concepts' gallery floor, and quite often in the front window display. He would also take home 3rd place honors in the 2013 Estevan Art Gallery and Museum Adjudicated art show, as he continues to refine his skill. In 2015 he would release his first collection titled Abandoned, the show was well received, instantly becoming a favourite with art enthusiasts and collectors alike.
In 2016 Byron worked on expanding the success of Abandoned and began shooting for his follow up collection in Prince Edward Island.
After winning the EV Johnson Memorial Adjudicated Art Show in 2017, Byron was awarded an exhibition based on his photography while travelling through Costa Rica.
In the years to come, Byron will continue to explore his home country of Canada and expand his Canadian collections.
