Local Photographer, Roger Canada

Braden’s Lifestyles Furniture not only has the best furniture in town, but their sales team is made up of incredibly talented people, like this guy–Roger Canada. Canada is a 19 year veteran of the furniture industry, but first and foremost, a lifelong photographer.

Although he started in the furniture business many years ago, he did take a 7 year hiatus when pursuing wedding and portrait photography while living in the Shenandoah Valley. After returning to Tennessee, however, he returned to the furniture business so that he could pursue his photography for pleasure and without pressure!

Canada says that his passion for photography began when he was just a boy when his family would travel to Kansas to visit his paternal grandparents. It was then that his grandfather would ‘inevitably’ pull out the slide projector to show the family images from his and his wife’s most recent travels to Japan, Egypt or Europe. Canada remembers that while most of the family members would fall asleep, he would find himself enthralled with the images. His parents would buy him his first camera (a Polaroid) while he was still young, and after years of saving, he bought his first Nikon camera at the age of 15.

If you’re looking for local art, enjoy a keen eye in photography and could use some additional wall decor in your home, we’d like to invite you into our showroom to learn more about Roger’s incredible photography, and to view a wide range of his available images for print. His images can be customized by size and framing styline, including rag paper printing or canvases. The canvases are completed locally by the best printing company in the region, known for their work for many fine artists here in the south. The canvases are hand-finished and are UV protected and easily cleanable with a damp cloth.

Most fine art cotton paper prints and canvases can be completed within one to two weeks. The canvases can be finished and stretched so that they are ready to hang without framing. This is the most inexpensive option and looks great in more transitional or modern decor schemes. Framing will add expense, but the final product and quality is simply hard to beat.

Roger Canada was chosen as the sole photographer for the Great Smoky Mountains Association’s 75th anniversary calendar for the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. His photographs have been published nearly every year, for the last 20 years, in various publications including: Sierra Club, Brown Trout, New York Life and MetLife. He has also been featured regularly in Blue Ridge Country Magazine.


Framed photographs are available through Braden’s Lifestyles Furniture.
