Now an award winning photographer in Ontario Canada, it has been a longing desire to share the beauty of the natural world that surrounds us each day but do not have the time or opportunity to look closely at what is really in front of us. A little over 10 years ago I picked up a camera and found I was able to fulfil that desire and bring my visions to you in the form of digital photography and digital art. I am a self taught photographer inspired by the simplest of subjects that can spark a variety of feelings and a passion for nature landscape.

Having been intrigued by many different elements in both the man made and natural world, I strive to discover new and different ways to capture what I see and want to see and provide you with an emotional and wondrous way of viewing things the way I see them. Capturing a moment in time by the click of a shutter button, it’s a moment that we can never get back. But through my photography, I can at least allow you an opportunity to view the emotion felt at that time. Please enjoy and relive the moments I bring to you.

All my photographs are for sale by digital downloads, fine art prints on high quality papers or canvas. I use all conservation quality papers and inks for my printing and professional custom framing service.

Many customers request my photographs to be made in to art cards which is also a service I provide. If you have your own photographic family gems on your hard drive, CD’s or other storage devices, I would be honoured to take your treasures and put them on DVD coordinated to music so you can share on your TV with friends and family.

Searching for a special image? Contact me directly as I maintain a substantial amount of images or will attempt to find and photograph the scene and feeling you are looking for.

I would love to hear from you about my work or website. Enjoy my photographic work.
