I am an advanced enthusiast photographer based in Stouffville, Ontario. Though I have actively been making photographs for many years, the acquisition of my first DSLR camera a few years ago has opened up new creative channels.
My photography focuses primarily on nature and landscapes, though I have ventured into the world of abstraction, architecture, portraiture, and street photography. To me, photography is the art of communicating the feeling an object or scene invokes for me, deliberately. It’s about finding beautiful things in ordinary places. My photography has very little to do with what I see and everything to do with how I see them as well as how they make me feel. Call me a photographic impressionist, if you will. I want people to look at my photos and sense the experience I had when making it.
Lately, my focus has been on pursuing the art of photographic abstractions, using lighting, motion, and strong vertical elements to create the “God Light” series of photographs. Joining the recently formed “A Place for the Arts”, artist’s co-op in Bancroft has allowed me to show many of my work in a beautiful creative space where other artists share their works and ideas.
Many of my photos have been featured in magazine articles, web sites, and church bulletin covers. Over the past few years, I have entered several pieces in the Markham Fair where they have garnered many first place ribbons, in various categories, as well as “Best in Show” for my Black and White entry in 2014.
I am now also proud to announce that I have been accepted into the 2017 Stouffville Studio Tour, along with several other artists, to showcase the visual arts in my region. I’ll be posting a link when it becomes available.
My intent, through blogging is to share my photographs with a broader audience and be able to share, in words, some of my thoughts about the experience that goes along with actual photo.
I hope you enjoy your visits to this blog and recognise that all the photos are available for purchase via my web-site. Your support through purchases enables me to keep my equipment in good order and affords more opportunity to advance my passion.
