I grew up in a small Northern Town on a large Lake. I was always fascinated by Bug, Birds and Wildlife. Growing up in this small town gave me lots of opportunities to see and interact with nature. I was your typical boy with the slingshot hanging out of one back pocket and a Frog in one of my front pockets. It was tremendous fun for myself, but caused my Mother much grief. She never liked the Snakes and other creatures I regularly brought home. I can remember when I was about 7 and caught a Arigope (Garden Spider) that was so large, I couldn't quite close my hand fully around him without crushing him. I took him in the house and showed my Mom. I can still hear her piercing scream like it was yesterday. Drawing, sketching and painting was also where a lot of my free time was spent. I think the camera is a fantastic medium for producing another form of Art. My greatest satisfaction comes from shooting action shots. Birds in flight or fight, Mammals running, People leaping, diving, jumping etc....as I love challenges. I also like to read, learn and share ideas.
