Photographic Snapshots of Moments in Time...
Welcome to my website.
Photography—the more I learn about it, the more I find there is to understand. There is no doubt it has its disappointments, especially when you are first starting out, but it can be very rewarding creative-wise.
One of the advantages of Photography is that it allows me to meet many interesting people who I never would have had the privilege to know if I hadn’t taken up the camera. Photography also opens up doors that would otherwise be closed; just because you have a camera in your hands people are more accommodating and willing to help. In addition, photography gives me the satisfaction of seeing something that perhaps no one else notices at the time, and a chance to record that particular moment before it is gone. What still amazes me is how many people are willing to participate in capturing an image that I might see through the lens and to allow me to make them a part of that moment.
So, here on this website are just a few of those moments in time. Some were carefully orchestrated while others were captured/caught with a little bit of luck—applying the cliché about “being in the right place at the right time.” Some photos have been enhanced with filters and a few have been turned into another art medium with the help of computer software.
Finally, I would like to acknowledge several people who have helped me in my photographic journey. First, my wife Colleen, who has shown her patience and understanding in my endeavours. She may not share the same enthusiasm as me, but she understands the driving force. Secondly, to Kim W., Paul C., and Meghan S., whose expertise in developing my work and offering criticism with encouragement has made me want to learn more (and many times made me look a lot better than I am). Then there is my son David who is the one who has made this website possible. It was, indeed, his idea, and it would not have happened if it wasn’t for his hard work, advice, and patience.
To these people I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you.
