I started photography with a Minolta 110 format camera. It was good enough until I was on our honeymoon and soon discovered its limitations in poor lighting. I bought a Pentax K2 DMD 35mm camera and my photos went to a whole new level. Practicing with different lighting setups and seeing how a light sources quality, quantity and direction can dramatically change a photograph. Eventually I moved on to a Canon 20D digital then upgraded to the Canon 7D and better lenses for optimal image quality.

For the last 40 years I have enjoyed photographing people, landscapes and in particular some unusual subjects or different lighting situations.

I like the challenge of shooting at night or using a black backdrop. This allows me to completely control the light. For landscape photography I use filters frequently to modify the lighting.

Belonging to the Moose Jaw Camera Club allows me to see what others are doing and to learn from them. I look forward to sharing more of my experience and techniques.

Here are examples of my images:
