High in the remote rugged mountains of Gros Morne National Park, Newfoundland two caribou suddenly change direction and walk toward me. I quickly change to a shorter lens. Kayaking in the Bay of Fundy on Canada's east coast, coming upon towering red sandstone cliffs, sculptured by the tides, I open a waterproof camera case. Rounding the corner of a desolate abandoned house reveals a vacant window with tattered, wind tossed curtains entangled in sprawling vines. It is a photograph etched in time.
It is out of explorations such as these that I create my photographs. Born in Riverview, New Brunswick, I spent most of my youth hiking in the woods. Borrowing a 35 mm. camera and learning on my own, initiated a passion in me for this medium.
My first occupation was working as a child care worker in a treatment center for youth. In sharing my outdoor experience with these children I realized how nature could provide them with a healing environment. I now operate wilderness camps for youth during the summer months.
My years of dedication to my photography has resulted in an extensive library of images with images being offered in various galleries and gift shops. I presently resid with my wife Marilyn in the historic seaside village of Pugwash, Nova Scotia, world famous for Peace. Their century old Victorian home also operates as a gallery.
