Established in 1987, the Norman Piluke Photo Gallery/DSM Photographic is located on the west end of downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The walls of this private gallery are graced by Norman's unique collection of fine art photography, begun in 1980, depicting nature, nautical images, landscape, travel and wildlife images.
All photographs in this site were personally captured by Norman Piluke and Joanie, his wife, during their travels. They were individually printed by Norman "in house" with a high resolution state of the art digital printer, using quality archival inks which produce brilliant colours and sharp detail on both photographic paper and canvas.
In the past, the gallery offered custom size printing to meet your needs. At present we are selling all our inventories framed or unframed prints and canvas laminated printed. All framed photographs (giclee on paper or canvas) are laminated for ultra violet protection and longevity. For custom framing, different options of framing are availabe, depending on your preference. For the photographs on canvas, they could be gallery wrapped (frameless) or with a floater frame (simple black or brown) or with the "Norman Piluke traditional framing."
