I started blogging at the end of January of 2013 and I found that I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would. It has been a wonderful way to share my photographs and to meet and experience some incredible artists, writers, photographers and great people from around the world. My other blogs have been constricted by self imposed themes so this one will be a little different – a random sampling of my photography. I hope you enjoy them.
I bought my first camera in 1969, a Canon 35mm. The majority of the photos I took then were portraits and I shot almost entirely in black and white. I did quite well with my photography, even managing to get on the cover of Billboard magazine. In 1972 I moved to a small coastal town north of Vancouver, BC. For some reason over the next few years I lost interest in photography and rarely took a photo. In the late 80′s I started painting (watercolour) and would photograph my subject first to paint from. My paintings are either close-up still life or scenery. I found I was using my camera more and more and eventually (and at first reluctantly) went digital. The versatility of digital cameras rekindled my interest in photography and I have now mostly moved away from black and white and portraiture to shoot the natural beauty in the area I now live.
