my photography reflects the time I spend outdoors as well as my appreciation for design, clean aesthetics and minimalism, which can be seen in my choice of focus.
growing up surrounded by woodworkers, this background influenced my choice to hand mount archival prints onto wood. maintaining the raw natural beauty of the outdoors is important to me and guided my choice to hone the technique of affixing photos onto wood without glare while maintaining a natural composition reflecting the origin of the subject.
Sechelt B.C. continues to be a strong influence on my work as it was my hometown, but my extensive world travels give me a broad base to draw from while maintaining my minimalist eye. land and seascapes of the west coast of British Columbia are my specialty but shoots like the Mojave Desert, the Isle of Skye and the Pyrenees have impacted my palette greatly.
I’ve written a number of articles – both in print and online – that have also featured my photographs. my book more than medals features some of the best athletes in the world, explaining and exploring what it takes to become world class.
as a former professional athlete, in the upper most tier of my sport, I represented Canada for over a decade on the FIVB beach volleyball world tour. on tour when I wasn’t playing, I was taking photos and writing in notebooks. my ideas and photos from that time shaped and sharpened my focus creating a jumping off point in pursuit of a more creative passion.
