Onnig J. Cavoukian, known professionally as Cavouk, is a well-known Canadian-Armenian photographer.

Early life and career

Born in Cairo on May 8, 1945 to ethnic Armenian parents Artin and Lucie Cavoukian, Onnig Cavoukian emigrated with his family from Cairo to Canada in 1958. He is the brother of the well-known Canadian children's entertainer Raffi and Ann Cavoukian, the former Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario.

Onnig Cavoukian followed in the footsteps of his grandfather Ohanness Cavoukian and his father Artin in becoming a portrait photographer.

During his career, Cavouk's subjects included Indira Gandhi, the Queen Mother, Queen Elizabeth II, Oscar Peterson, Pierre and Margaret Trudeau, Leonid Brezhnev, Patrick Macnee, Hubert Humphrey, and Pat Nixon.

Three Canadian stamps have been made from portraits by Cavouk, of Roland Michener, Maureen Forrester, and Sam McLaughlin respectively.

After spending most of his adult life in Toronto, Cavouk retired in April 2006, moving to Winona, Ontario on a property next to Fifty Point Conservation Area.--
