Dwight Arthur has been visually focused from an early age. He got his first exposure to photography at about age four in his father’s darkroom, and he has been hooked on the medium ever since.
His philosophy is that photographs are all about communication. A good photo is one that clearly communicates the intended message with no detours or distractions.
“Have something to say, and say it with clarity and enthusiasm!”
In recent years he has also decided to share his wealth of experience with others by teaching photography—both with Continuing Education at Red Deer College, McBain Camera and through private coaching.
Photography Coaching & Training
Not only does Photek create outstanding images, we also teach photography! We have two options to make the most of your photographic learning!
We offer classroom style training via McBain camera covering camera basics, “getting off auto” and more advanced classes. Visit their website for classes, times and prices.
For anyone wanting to learn more about photography, from basic camera operation to image editing, I’d recommend Photek training in an instant.

When I started learning from Dwight I had very little knowledge about how to work my camera. With Dwight’s encouragement I was able to take my camera off of auto and capture the images that I had envisioned.
~ Jennifer Swenson
Dwight taught me the fundamentals of photography and gave me the understanding and confidence to continue to develop my skills and pursue my passion of portrait photography.
~ Linda Healing
Dwight dispelled the mysteries and complexities of my camera which allowed me to think more about what I wanted to photograph rather than think just about the camera.
~ Archie Richardson
I have also learned to read the light that is around me, and to make creative decisions based on what I see and feel in any given situation.
~ Brian Olstad
What I really enjoy about Photek classes is the passion that Dwight has for what he does, plus the ability to transfer that passion to his students. Dwight has inspired me to aim higher in my creative ability!
~ Mike Wanini
Dwight’s teaching style is simple and fun and after taking the first course I was hungry for more and to keep on going.
~ Andrea Macdonald
He is willing to share all of his knowledge and is extremely patient—willing to take the time to make sure you understand
~ Jennifer Swenson
My own images are now much improved because of the time I’ve spent with Dwight
