BIOGRAPHY
Canadian writer/photographer living in central Ontario,

I take photographs to have fun and because I simply must.

My photographic heroes? Vivien Maier, Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Gordon Parks, Dorothea Lange, Margaret Bourke-White, Eugene Smith, Walker Evans, and David Douglas Duncan. Unlike them I stay close to home and take very safe, very quiet photos.

Home now is on Georgian Bay in central Ontario in Canada, although I lived for many, many years in Toronto. I have been trying to make photographs since the late 1960s. Once in a while I get lucky and trap some magic in light form.

I was recently looking through some old photo albums and noted that I at some point in my teenage years became the family photographer taking over from my Mom. As a result I pretty much disappear from the family photo record. It is a little unsettling to disappear like that. This is probably why I have resorted to so many self portraits recently. My mother's parents were Swedes from Finland who came to Canadaaround 1910. My father's ancestors were Irish and came earlier, around the time of the Potato Famine and a little later, so 1848 or thereabouts. I have visited Ireland, and still hope to visit the village in Finland where my Mother's people came from. That's right Swedes from Finland.

I worked for many years as a technical writer. A life long interest in history, photographic art and cinema.

I keep saying I am going to go back to shooting film sometimes with my many old cameras but I haven't actually done it much. OTOH the Sony NeX camera by means of adapters can use manual focus lenses of various makes. It has a brilliant peek magnification to help you get the focus correctly set. I have had some good luck with that. So the old lenses live on so to speak.

Still looking for the perfect, does it all camera, but it remains the holy grail.

Film Gear: Nikon F2, F801s, Nikkormat FTN, Pentax SP, Spotmatci, S1A, PZ-1, Yashica FR, Rolleicord V, Yashica D, FED 2, Kiev 4, Bessa R, Bessa T101, Yashica Lynx 14e, Konica Auto S2, Leica IIIf RD ST, Agfa Record III BIlly

Digital: Nikon D7100, Sony NEX F3, Nikon D3100, Fujifilm S8200 - for the NEX I have picked up a bunch of lens adapters to shoot old manual lenses on it, interesting feature
