I grew up competing in alpine skiing and road cycling to international levels, went to University for Kinesiology, then became a manufacturers sporting goods agent representing premier sports equipment manufacturers to retailers in Western Canada. I first started shooting pictures in 1985 using a Minolta Maxxum 7000. Took a break from photography from 1992 to 2005 and then jumped back into it in the digital age and loving it more than ever. My life has always involved sports and the outdoors and I love freezing the action for others to see. My background as an elite athlete gives me the advantage of where to be for ‘that shot’….Anticipation….knowing, or having a pretty good idea of what’s about to happen next.
For several years, I have had the joy of spending countless hours walking through the farms, forests, and fields throughout Alberta, Canada. Learning about and photographing several of Alberta’s stunning Owls and animals in their natural habitat.
Animals are creatures of habit so learning their patterns and where, when and how they live their lives makes it easier to experience them in their natural habitat. For those who would also like to experience these animals in their natural habitat, I offer several ethical photo tours for photographers and wildlife enthusiasts. My tours do not involve animal baiting and as part of my tour I will cover how to photograph wildlife ethically.
