As you plan your next trip through the immense province of Ontario, you will undoubtedly find 'A Photographer's Guide To The Ontario Landscape' an indispensible guide to countless photographic locations. My friend and colleague, Andrew McLachlan, has produced an outstanding e-book to direct you to these wonderful locations. I had the pleasure of traveling and photographing with Andrew during some of these excursions. Throughout the book, Andrew has interspersed many tips about making fine images.

The calendar is purchased by insurance brokers and other businesses for free distribution to their customers. Get your calendar now while supplies last!

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to my blog! It's been in the making for some time now but, like good food, good photography also takes time.
I have been passionate about making images since I purchased my first camera back in 1976. It's been a great journey so far and the road ahead looks even more inviting.
Through text and photos, I will focus on topics and issues that excite and intrigue me. I will share information and resources as well as offer my thoughts and viewpoints on a myriad of subjects, providing some guidance ... and hoping to inspire!
