I am a retired dog groomer with a dog grooming shop at my home which I operate as a hobby in the small community of Eagle Creek. I enjoy the bounty of our remote northern British Columbia property and the hundreds of lakes and creeks which surround us. This includes kayaking, fishing, ice fishing, hiking and cross-country skiing. I am also a self-taught graphite artist and amateur photographer. My favourite artistic subjects are animals and photo studies of the gloriously rugged natural scenes of field, mountains, and lakes intrigue me the most.
I have recently read a number of photography books by Bryan Peterson. This has motivated me to explore and try out as many of the exercises and suggestions in the book of his that I purchased (Understanding Photography Field Guide) to drag along with me as I go. I hope to improve the way I see the world, compose photographic stories and improve my photography skills as share my journey of discovery.
