In my entire life, I have focused my efforts on our natural and social environment. My photography is an extension of this passion.
Myphotography focuses on the timeless and universal nature of the world aroundus. So, whether the photo was takennearby in Georgian Bay or in Iceland or Ireland, it’s the spirit of thelandscape that is speaking to me.
While my original work was situated in traditional straight landscaper photography, my more recent photographs transcend the everydayexperience and enable us to see the design and colors in nature.
I amcontinuously exploring new areas of photography and experimenting with newtechniques including intentional camera movement, digital art and infra-red photography.
My work encompasses both landscape and nature photography. This web site profiles my landscape photography. For my nature photography, please see www.valleyedgenature.ca .
Exhibits and Community Involvement
In 2018, I will participate in the Coldwater Studio Tour (June 23-24) and I will have a joint show at the Double Door Gallery in Anten Mills.
Last year, I participated in the Seven Up show at the Double Door Gallery and Collingwood Art Crawl. I participated in the Images studio Tour in 2014 and 2016. Previously, I have exhibited at the Orillia Museum of Art and History, Zephyr Gallery and Quest Art Gallery.
I have also worked with a non-profit art and conservation groups offering workshops and field trips on nature photography and digital photography techniques. I led workshops for the Couchiching Conservancy, Orillia Museum of Art and History and Quest Art.
From 2006-2009, I served as President of the Orillia and District Camera Club. I am a past President of the Toronto Focal Forum, a print critique group of leading photographers in the region. See www.focalforum.ca. I am also a member of the Barrie Photo Club.
Currently, I am President of the Copeland Forest Friends Association, a non-profit corporation dedicated to the stewardship of the Copeland Forest. The Copeland Forest is the largest intact forest in southern Ontario. See www.copelandfriends.ca .
Giclee Prints and More
I am also a photographic printer and I place special value on the physical print which has its own importance distinct from the digital image. All my images are printed to the highest "giclee" standards on archival photographic paper and ink. The papers used have been tested for permanence and longevity. Large prints may be sent out to custom print labs.
I also do event photography, family portraits and more.
Have an upcoming project? I'd love to collaborate with you!
