Jim Lamont is a photographer and custom photographic printmaker who founded PeregrinePrints in 2003, a company dedicated to working with photographers to make fine art quality prints at affordable prices. He has been teaching intermediate and advanced photographic printmaking with the School of the Photographic Arts: Ottawa (SPAO) since 2007, and taught a variety of courses with Henry’s from 2004 until 2018. Prints of his images are in private and corporate collections across North America and Australia. Many environmental organizations have used his images and prints in publicity campaigns and as gifts. The Canadian government has purchased dozens of his images as large prints for display in embassies and consulates around the world. 

His primary photographic interest for several years has been the rediscovery of the Sublime in the context of global climate change.
