Chronology

 
1954 Born, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
   
I was city born and raised. Spent my weekends at prairie lakes and farms till university. Summer holidays consisted of throwing hay bales, herding cows, mountain trail rides, provincial park picnics and long drives. I picked up the camera at 18 when I travelled around the world for 7 months. Based on that, I claimed sufficient proficiency to get a 4 month volunteer photography gig in Lesotho in Africa, where I discovered landscapes. Then I dropped the camera till I turned 45, when yearning for something more grew too strong. I am self taught, and always experimenting. My aim is to peak artistically at around age 90.
