I dedicated a large part of my professional life to the art of Photography, and therefore to the agencies, clubs and people who involve themselves with it. On the national and international level, I devoted countless hours to the support and growth of CAPA, the Canadian Association for Photographic Art. It is my privilege to have worked on the National executive, where I served as President of the Association.
It is my pleasure to be deeply involved with ongoing training and education in CAPA, and have written and present several different lectures, courses and educational topics across Canada to support CAPA’s goals. Awarded their highest honours, FCAPA and Hon FCAPA for service and photographic achievement. I am a CAPA Certified Judge (CCJ), and a Canon CPS photographer.
My photography is mainly about the natural world and my ongoing travels take me to many exotic locations in the world. I have won many awards for my photography, and frequently am invited to lecture on photographic topics.
