Haresign Photo Works was founded in 2013 by Paul Haresign Williams and Diana Moser.
The studio gallery is located on the banks of the LaHave River in East LaHave, Nova Scotia.

most featuring Nova Scotia scenery. Please see price list below.
We also do custom printing and framing of your own photos or other art projects.
For more than 20 years Williams worked as a set & lighting designer as well as a technical director for theatres throughout Canada.
In Toronto he did extensive work with Theatre Passe Muraille, Factory Theatre Lab and Toronto Free Theatre. He designed sets and
lighting for original productions such as “Billy Bishop Goes To War”,“1837”and “Them Donnellys”.
Moving to Vancouver, he designed for Tamanous Theatre and City Stage. In addition to designing, Paul served as technical director at
The Vancouver East Cultural Centre. He was also the technical director for the Xerox International Amphitheatre at Expo ‘86. Later he taught design
and technical theatre at Malaspina College in Nanimo BC.
Williams retired from the theatre in 1992 to pursue his passion for sailing. He sailed his 35’ Cheoy Lee Lion sloop, “Simba 1” from Vancouver to
Hawaii before sailing back to San Diego, California where he met his future wife, Diana Moser. In 1996, Paul & Diana sailed south from San Diego
to Costa Rica and Panama. They transited the canal and spent the next ten years living aboard and sailing in the Caribbean and Atlantic, which
included many trips to Nova Scotia. Diana continued to “commute” to San Diego while working as a stage manager for the LaJolla Playhouse
and The Old Globe theatres.
Having fallen in love with Nova Scotia, they decided to buy a home in East LaHave, NS in 2006. At that time Paul turned his full attention to
photography. Diana stopped commuting and became a permanent resident in 2013. In 2014, a year after starting Haresign Photo Works,
Paul became a member of Halifax’s ViewPoint Co-Op Photography Gallery.
