Photography has been one of my life’s enduring passions. When I was six my grandmother gave me my first camera, a Kodak 110, that I used for many happy years. When I was in high school photography became an important artistic outlet – a sort of creative salvation – during turbulent times. I spent more time in M.M. Robinson’s darkroom than I did in all of my other classes combined during much of my high school life. When I graduated (by the skin of my teeth) I thought I would pursue a career in photography, but ended up studying Parks Management, and winning a position as a natural history interpreter in Banff National Park. I reasoned that I could take pictures and help save the world at the same time. That was nearly 20 years ago. Some water has passed beneath that bridge.
Today, photography is a passionate hobby, one which I am happy to share with you. When I have a camera in my hands I see the world very differently: it is more sharply focused, its colors more vivid, its textures more varied. Photography, for me, is the art of bending light: to fit in the space between the world we see and the spirit we feel. It is deeply satisfying to capture on film and in pixels what the heart beholds of this magnificent world.
