I have been a member of the Whitehorse Photography Club since I moved to the Yukon from Ontario in 1982 and I have served on the executive almost the entire time. My early years in the club were a time of rapid advancement of my photographic and artistic skills with the knowledge and inspiration imparted by fellow members and by some of the most exceptional professional photographers in the country at our annual workshops.

Most any type of subject is fair game for my camera but I gravitate to the natural world and it is immediately accessible to me with the Yukon wilderness literally stretching from my doorstep. I am a lousy documentary photographer, often not even thinking to capture something significant if I do not see aesthetic or creative potential in it. As such, I generally strive for artistry in my images over accurate portrayal and many of my favourites are quite abstract. I prefer to achieve abstraction in-camera but, for most of what I photograph, I also have no compunction about manipulation in software. Another avenue of inspiration is the use of my camera as a vehicle for discovery of things I cannot see with the naked eye or, more often, simply would otherwise tend to not see in the normal day to day routine of life. That is the basis of my long-time passion for macro photography and some dabbling in astrophotography.

I have used Pentax equipment since my first film SLR, a screw-mount Spotmatic II. For the types of photography I favour I love the capabilities of my current K-1 DSLR, along with a wide range of lenses. I have a capable computer and a wide gamut monitor to harness the power of Lightroom, Photoshop and Topaz, my main photo editing applications. I also enjoy print making with my Epson Pro 3800. And photography led me into the world of web design with my hobby site at, though admittedly my site has become rather antiquated and I rarely update it with new content anymore.
