I was born on Mile 0 of
the Alaska Highway and has been exploring the wilds of western Canada
ever since. I spent many of my formative years in Northern British
Columbia in the Mackenzie area before living on the edge of Jasper
National Park in Hinton Alberta. I spent a short stint out east while
attending Queen's University but I was lured back to the west by the
call of the Rockies and moved to Lethbridge to complete my studies at
the University of Lethbridge. I presently reside in Lethbridge Alberta
where I have lived for just over twenty five years.
Living in Lethbridge has given me the ability to explore the Canadian
Rockies on a regular basis and a majority of that time is spent
photographing Southern Alberta and the wilds of Waterton National Park.
While Waterton provides an opportunity to exercise my photography on a
regular basis, Banff, Jasper and Northern BC are visited and explored
on a regular basis also, as is most of Western Canada. In the past few
years travel has taken me to Africa, Europe, the Carribean, South
America and China.
Learning to develop black and white photography while a teenager led to
an interest in the digital darkroom when Adobe Photoshop first emerged
and has led to an expertise in the "Digital Darkroom". I am available
for and have taught seminars and courses on post production, LAB colour
mode editing, digitalworkflow, as well as general photography workshops.
have been lucky enough to be a "Natures Best Photography" magazine
contest finalist as well as a "Sigma Showtime" finalist. I have
also won the Fitzhugh Landscape and Fitzhugh Wildlife categories
contests, and have won an Aperture Imaging award. My work has appeared
in numerous magazines, newspapers, and books in North American as well
as the UK.
