As a dentist whose career was cut short I’ve gone from interpreting x – rays to interpreting nature through the lens of a digital camera. Every image, whether it is animals, landscapes or buildings tells a story and I get a great deal of satisfaction telling that story through my camera and my prints.
Black and white or colour, I find beauty in every subject resulting in a very eclectic portfolio. Without a single passion or niche, photography allows me to experiment and the variety is very fulfilling. My latest foray is in panoramic photography., Using a tripod and a panoramic head, multiple images up to 20 are shot and then stitched together in Photoshop to give the desired effect.
Born in Hamilton, Ontario in 1959 and educated at Mcmaster University and the University of Western Ontario for Dentistry, I practiced for 15 years. I make my home in Dundas with my wife Diane, a potter, however spend about 5 months a year in Killarney.
