Education and Experience
Photography has been a part of my life since 1977. After taking a course in photography at Ryerson University in 1999, I started to view photography as an art form. The course provided me with presentation and darkroom skills. Based on feedback, I had already developed a photographic eye. Since 1999, I have worked at further developing my photographic eye.
Prior to 1999, I utilized the colour photographic medium to present my views of travel and nature. In 1999, I switched to the black and white photographic medium and focused my work to three main subject areas, Canadian Maritime provinces to document and preserve the unique views of fishing harbours; landscapes; and floral studies.
In April 2004, I entered a new phase in my life by leaving the corporate world after about thirty-five years to pursue my passion for photography. The last several years were at the middle management level.
Since becoming a professional photographer:
· I have focused on expanding my portfolio which now includes still life, floral, urban, mystery girl series, maritime, landscapes and industrial. During my participation in Contact, Toronto Photography Festival, I have introduced themed work as well as expanding my artwork in the various subject areas of my portfolio.
· Through extensive hands on work in a wet darkroom, I have developed a high degree of technical experience in pulling silver prints. I am now being recognized as producing prints which have high definition and good tonal range.
