My journey with photography began in my early teens when I inherited a 35mm Lordomat C35 (circa 1956) rangefinder camera from my grandfather. Without a single automatic feature on this camera, I learned the fundamental principles of photography and learned quickly. Image processing was very expensive for a young man who relied on grass cutting and snow shovelling for income.

That wondrous journey has evolved with patience, persistence, some hard work, a lot of fun and amazing technology in ways that I could never have imagined so many years ago. That evolution has brought me here today, some 40 years later.

Although I enjoy all aspects and types of photography, my passion lies in wildlife as it marries the best of what I truly enjoy about nature with outdoor life. As you browse, please keep in mind that my Wildlife galleries are true to the term “wildlife” as all images of life have been captured in their wild, native and natural habitat.

I developed this website to have a place to hang my photos so, if you haven't already, please browse around and have a look at my work. The images are a part of my life and I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I did creating them.
