My love of photography started in high school in the mid-1960's and expanded considerably after I converted to digital photography, from film, over 20 years ago. While based in Southern Ontario, I have also been fortunate to spend a great deal of time over many years in the "Lowcountry" area of South Carolina, on and around Hilton Head Island. I have also traveled throughout the U.S. and Canada to such scenic spots as West Texas, Tucson, Phoenix, and Sedona, AZ, the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Canadian Rockies, Niagara Gorge, Niagara Escarpment and many other National, State and Provincial parks, as well as various historic sites.
Capturing an image with dramatic natural light is my primary goal in landscape photography, whether it be sunsets, sunrises, unsettled or changing weather, waterfalls or any other memorable or unique natural scene. Wildlife photography is often a very different challenge, but all these photographic subjects require patience and the continual, never-ending, refinement of one's skills and experience. Regardless of my specific subject matter, I view my photography as an art form with the ultimate goal of creating a lasting image that will be viewed and enjoyed over and over again.
Largely self-taught, I read as much as I can about photography for both technical improvement and inspiration. I am a member of the North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA), and an approved contributing photographer to Shutterstock, Inc., one of the world's largest photographic "stock" agencies.
