Bio

In 2000 I transferred to Moose Jaw and I am currently employed as an instructor in the business division at the Sask. Polytech campus. My main subject area is computer applications courses.

My wife Pat and I purchased our first camcorder in 1990 and our first digital camera in 2000. I watched her take pictures and videos of our children as they grew up. I wasn’t very interested in photography but organized the pictures and videos on our home computer.  She also used several film cameras during that time. I occasionally used the cameras but only with passing interest.

I have taken up photography as a hobby, that I wish to pursue as I approach retirement. Last year we joined the Moose Jaw Camera Club and purchased a Nikon D610 camera and several lenses. We have enjoyed our association with the club and I am slowly learning some of the complexities of photography and photo editing software. The club has provided the stimulus to learn and enjoy this hobby.
