The Photographer

Welcome to my photography web-site.

I've been involved in photography over the last 30 years thanks to the influence and inspiration of my father.
For the past 25 years I have lived in a beautiful area called Muskoka where I spend a lot of time in the outdoors and enjoy activities such as canoeing, hiking, cycling, and cross country skiing. Muskoka is about 2hrs. drive north of Toronto, Canada, and is a region with a lot of forested area and is scattered with many lakes.
Transforming the beauty of my environment into photographic images is what fuels my passion for photography. Being active in the outdoors allows me to observe the various and fascinating dimensions of our natural world and inspires me to seek out unique photo opportunities. Sometimes my photos are a result of careful planning. Other times I rely on what some call the “Serendipity Factor” where I quickly try to capture a moment that has unexpectedly presented itself. Although a lot of my photography involves nature, I also enjoy the challenge of photographing people, architecture, and still life.
Thank you for visiting and I hope you like looking through my collection of photos. If you have any comments or questions about my photography please feel free to visit my guestbook or drop me an e-mail. Also, if you are interested in purchasing any of my photos please contact me and I will get back to you as soon as possible. You can custom order prints from my many images as well and can choose from a variety of different sizes. My images are all signed and are printed on high quality fine art paper which is acid free and ensures longevity if treated properly.

The virtue of the camera is not the power it has to transform the photographer into an artist, but the impulse it gives him to keep on looking.
