“As a forest fire fighter and photographer for the past 10 years, Cory Bialecki has had many opportunities to capture on film both the astounding forces of the blazes that wreck havoc in our province’s woodlands and the brave men and women who work in this hazardous profession.” Devoting more and more time to photography keeps this photographer right on track with where he wants to be in the future. With an eye and passion for Documentary and Editorial Photography, Cory continues to dissect the world around him and find the story behind every picture he makes. “Photography has really slowed things down for me. I appreciate the little things, and tend not to be so passive with what I see. It really forces you to take note of everything that is around you, all the little things that make up your life.” - BOULEVARD Magazine, May/June 2005
