During my professional career, I was fascinated with the mind's agility in processing and interpreting sensory information. As an artist, I continue to explore the different ways in which the mind perceives the world around it and how the accepted norms can be challenged by creativity, curiosity and a camera. Much of my fine art photography has centred around creating what I refer to as Light Tapestries. Centuries-old architectural...more
My Light Tapestry Landscape and Abstract images are created when a centuries- old architectural structure, with its dim interior, pierced by beams of exterior light, is transformed into a type of natural camera obscura. From within, I am essentially drawing with the streaming beams of light, by carefully choreographing the movement of my hand held camera, to create different 'versions' of the outside scene. In this manner, I can create...more

I then weave the various pieces together to create the pattern, in my mind's eye.more

Once Upon An Eagle represents a convergence of the photographic work which led to my...more
I have had the privilege of observing and photographing wildlife in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem over the past 8 years. This unique area is the largest, mostly intact, temperate ecosystem in the northern hemisphere and home to the greatest concentration of wildlife in North America, including herds of free-roaming bison.
Bison are the largest land animals in North America, standing approximately 6 feet tall at their shoulders,...more
I feel privileged and deeply connected to wildlife when I observe them in their natural habitat and am witness to the rhythm of their days.
Wildlife photography requires thoughtful preparation; knowledge of individual species, their habits and their habitat; often varying degrees of hiking, climbing and travel; endless patience; and a love of the outdoors in all kinds of weather. Despite such endurance and dedication, there may be only...more
