SmibsTV host Peter Urban interviewed me via skype just as I was about to launch my new photo gallery. His online program 'Fine Art Photography Weekly' probes into the fascinating world of fine art photography by chatting with various fine art photographers from around the world. On Episode 33, 'Starting Your Own Gallery', we talked about various aspects of setting up a gallery, including finding the right location at Photo Central; the extensive research required at the beginning; the collaboration with a great design team at Circle; the experimentation with various paper substrates, mounting and laminating materials; how to display the prints; marketing approaches, and much more.


We also talked about how I came to launch 'The Canadian Gallery' at this point in my career as well as my experience with publishing books. The podcast may also be heard on Luminous Landscape, the web's most comprehensive site devoted to the art of landscape, nature and documentary photography.
