Photography is more than a profession to me. Although my training and background includes familiarity and execution of the fundamentals of the craft such as architectural, advertising, product and studio photography my main interest and direction has been documentary and fine art. In the summer I sell matted and framed landscape photographs from my studio and at various other venues.

As a side to professional career on Hornby Island I have been recording the faces, activities and lives of my fellow islanders. This seemingly lifetime project has enabled me to document historically the changes a small island has gone through in the space of almost thirty years. I have done a number of Photographic shows on this subject and pictures have been published in various venues over the years. I suppose the ultimate goal for this project is a book; if only I could pick a cutoff date.
