  • Why Take a Workshop?

      Why Take a Photographic Workshop? Teaching a photographic workshop is a privilege, not because of f-stops, shutter speeds, and secret techniques to produce ‘wow’ images, but because we discuss photography as art.

    If I had apprenticed under Ansel Adams, I am sure I would have been greatly influenced by his attention to image detail and the ‘Group F-64’.  On my personal journey, however, I was influenced more by painting artists. My grand-mother painted, my father painted, and my younger sister and her husband were both professional painting artists. Together, […]

  • The Story Behind the Image

    I just posted my October Newsletter which contains some stories from this summers wildfires.

    Flickers arrived on our property last week and the sounds of them pecking trees, telephone poles and roof tops, made me thing of the time I captured this image along the shores of the Fraser River. I watched this flicker come and go from her nest and I remember marveling at how perfectly sized the […]

  • The Story Behind the Image

    I just love living on BC’s central plateau at this time of the year when different birds arrive weekly, filling the skies with song. When I hear the first blackbird, Canada goose, meadowlark, loon, and sandhill crane; I know that life is good. I am still alive, and the planet is still spinning. All else becomes […]
