|Description of your art form||
I love photography. I love the artistic and technical challenges that must be met each time one creates an image. To capture that essential presence of one’s subject is incredibly fulfilling.
Having started out with sports photography many years ago, I learned to focus quickly and anticipate the action. Exploring nature, wildlife, landscapes and other types of photography, including horses came about logically. I love looking for new challenges. Contributing to my local photo club is another way to share my appetite for photography.
I was raised in Alberta and moved to BC in 2010. Over the years I have photographed on three continents, capturing numerous award-winning images. In the past two years, I have entered the world of International Photographic Salons (recognized by the Photographic Society of America and FIAP) and have achieved over 350 acceptances and over 60 other awards including 8 gold medals.
I have photographs in several different collections including the BC Cancer Centre in Victoria, the Fort Rodd Hill National Historic Site and many private collections. My exhibitions include international exhibitions as well as local shows at the Metropolis Photo Gallery in Victoria (solo), prints in the Victoria Camera Club print shows (2015, 2018, 2019), the Oak Bay Library in 2018 and 2019, London Drugs Canada 150 Photography Exhibition (2017), the Harbour City 2019 Exhibition (Nanaimo), and the Sidney Fine Art Show. My images can also be found in the Balfour Friends calendar (volunteer).
2019 has brought more honours:
1 . Winner of the Distinguished Photographer of the year award – Advanced at the Victoria Camera Club
