Hi! I'm Peter Young...

founder and photographer at Lighthouse Studios, located in Cornwall, Prince Edward Island.

I grew up with a lot of art  influences in my life and knew from a young age that I was going to be an artist, even though I convinced myself sometimes that I wanted to be anything else.

My goal in photography is to make engaging and narrative images – whether they’re portraits or product images. I take pride in my work, and I value putting in the effort to get it “just right.” Using light to sculpt and shape a subject can be a lot of fun too!

Stories often need the aid of images to set the tone, emotion, or mood. As humans, we rely on visual input almost more than any of our other senses, so I get to be a sort of guide in helping others tell their stories.

Big changes are coming...

My wife and I are expecting our first child very, very soon.

I got this. I’ve been “Uncle Peter” for 25 years, and I’ve been told I’m pretty good at uncling. Thanks to my nieces and nephews, I’m going into this with lots of diaper changing experience.

We are expecting our daughter to arrive on May 21st – but I’m not so secretly hoping for the 23rd – the same day of the month both my wife and I were born. Also the day we got married. The day I proposed. It’s a theme. If she comes before or after, though, I’ll forgive her.
