An Image for Every Islander

An Image for Every Islander

February 5, 2016

I received a call on Tuesday afternoon with an invitation to be present for the unveiling of a new PEI Health Card the following morning. It would be the first update to the card in over 20 years, it will now be bilingual and it will also be designed around an image of mine created … Read More

Life is Shorter Than We Think

Life is Shorter Than We Think

January 13, 2016

I’ve never met Paul Burwell but quite familiar with his photography, magazine articles and teaching. Diagnosed with pancreatic cancer on Christmas Eve and gone less than a month later, it is so damn scary how quickly everything can change. It makes you question everything you do — but more importantly, what you do not do … Read More

2015 Year in Review

2015 Year in Review

December 31, 2015

It is that time when all the photoblogs and photographers from around the world create a small collection of images representing their best to reflect 12 months of progress, their stories, their art or whatever the goals may have been. I’ve participated in the past and I’ll probably participate again in the future but for … Read More

What You Didn’t See

What You Didn’t See

December 11, 2015

All the books and workshops money can buy can’t teach practice. I just finished looking at a collection of almost 700 images. Images from a friend I travelled with to Greenland last month. The results are spectacular and left me a bit jealous. Like Iceland, travelling through Greenland was an interesting learning experience. We were … Read More

Flying with The Canadian Forces Snowbirds

Flying with The Canadian Forces Snowbirds

September 9, 2015

I’m tied down and pinned to the seat. The engines are fired up. The glass canopy is coming down. We’re moving and taxiing out to the runway. I’m in jet 9 with all 8 in front. It’s time to fly. If you missed part 1 of this story, may I suggest reading that post first.

An Experience to Remember with the Canadian Forces

An Experience to Remember with the Canadian Forces

August 26, 2015

Over the past several years, photography has allowed me to experience many things that I otherwise might not have been able to. The ability to tell stories with the use of photographs is an often exciting and rewarding experience. This week, I did something that I’ve been dreaming of doing for a very long time. … Read More

Sharing sunrise over the West River with 40 new friends

Sharing sunrise over the West River with 40 new friends

July 19, 2015

For the past 5 days, I along with 40+ other photographers have been attending what might have been the best 5 day gathering and experience I’ve had the opprotunity to be part of. It became more of a summer camp with early mornings and very late nights, all at a location that was very personal. … Read More

Land and See : July 14-18

Land and See : July 14-18

January 21, 2015

I’ve worked with Dave Brosha in the past during the production of his first ebook, we’ve traveled and photographed a bit in Banff together, and last summer during his cross country workshop tour, Dave invited me to attend his PEI stop to see what it was all about. Dave was a distant friend living in … Read More

First Day of 2015

First Day of 2015

January 1, 2015

Another year comes to an end and it’s hard not to wonder where the time went. It feels like each passing year picks up speed and disappears faster than the previous. All at the same pace my desire to do more increases. 2014 was a year without travel. A first for me in over 10 … Read More

Last Day of 2014

December 31, 2014

Twenty fourteen was a big year on Prince Edward Island. A year of celebrations to mark the 150th anniversary of the 1864 Charlottetown Conference — an event that eventually led to Canadian Confederation. This is far from a complete summary of a busy year of events, activities and festivals but here are a few of … Read More

Snow Season

November 25, 2014

Temperatures are dropping and the first true signs of winter and snow fall are showing in the forecast. The cold and frost covered windshield is not the best motivator to get out of a warm bed while it’s still dark outside and for many, the camera goes into hibernation until spring. Some of the best … Read More

Revisiting Old Images

November 6, 2014

Unless I forget to remove the lens cap, I rarely delete and simply archive. I would like to believe that I’m a better photographer than I was 2 years ago. I see things differently and how I approach creating new images is forever changing. With all that file clutter just taking up space, it’s an … Read More
