Work Hard, Have Fun
My love of photography began in 1981 when I was first able to purchase some very good photography equipment right after I graduated from Port Hope High School. I was young and able to buy very good film equipment. For many years I honed my skills as a photographer.
In 1990 my wife Laura(now a school Principal) and I move from Mississauga Ontario to Port Sydney Ontario in beautiful Muskoka. I enjoyed photography even more in Muskoka and was able to get many lovely shots of wildlife, nature and landscapes. I've been going at it with a passion as a hobbyist ever since. Since 2004, my wife and our two boys live in Bracebridge Ontario, at the south end of Muskoka. My son Nathan was prominent as a goaltender in Bracebridge minor hockey during his childhood and my older son Stephen was and is an accomplished drummer. Nate also played guitar and both boys had vocal lessons when they were kids.
In 2012 I lost 113 lbs and I am featured on page 114 of the book Wheat Belly Total Health that was published September 2014. I've since run two 1/2 marathons, the first in Miami Jan 2013 and the second in Toronto in May 2013. I am and am booked to run the Miami 1/2 marathon in Jan 2015 and hope to run a full marathon later that year.
In 2014 I began serious wildlife and sports photography. I began the year with hockey photos and was able to capture the championship South Muskoka Midget Bears on the playoff run, including the parade and banquet.
I've spent a great deal of time in Muskoka or Algonquin Park and have captured some memorable wildlife photos. I'm now the photographer for South Muskoka Minor Hockey and Bracebridge Minor Ball, as well as the in house photographer for Overtime Magazine.
I use the best gear, Canon 5D Mark IV, Canon 7D Mark II, Canon 70-200 F/2.8 IS USM II, Canon 24-70 F/4, 50mm 1.8 and I rent gear as needed for events. I have 3 of Canon's best flashes, Canon 600 EX-RT, and the Canon wireless transmitter, various softboxes, flash umbrellas, etc. I keep adding to my gear on an ongoing basis.
