I look forward to presenting at this year's 'Word On The Water' Book Festival in Kenora, Ontario on beautiful Lake of the Woods. I will share some of my thoughts about my approach to photographing the natural world as well as talk about the 'how and the why' behind some of the images I make.
On Sunday, October 27, I will conduct a one-day photo workshop - 'Viewfinder To Print' - which will involve an outdoor 'sunrise session' as well as an indoor session where we will edit, process and learn about translating our vision to the final image. Finally, we will critique some of the morning's photographs.
From October 11 to November 9, I will exhibit NATURAL REFLECTIONS, a selection of large scale photographs at Tangled Tree Framing & Gifts in Kenora. The exhibition is co-sponsored by Tangled Tree Framing & Gifts, Elizabeth Campbell Books and Word On The Water Book Festival.

Autumn is back in all its glory! Whether in your own backyard, or your favorite country walk, it's time to get out there and experience fall colors. The fall season, a favorite for many, can explode with colour but it can also be brief!

I drive by this location just west of Schreiber, ON often. It was probably on a postcard long ago. Here is my version.

I noticed this ruffed grouse on the roadside and stopped to observe it for a while. It eventually flew across to the other side of the road and made me think that it would be interesting to try and capture it in flight. It eventually returned to a tree on the other side of the road after which I readied myself for a shot. As I approached closer to the grouse, it once again left the tree and I quickly followed its motion releasing the shutter a few times. I was happy to find one frame in focus, particularly since I captured the image from close range without remote triggers or sophisticated technology. It's nice to have 'Lady luck' on your side occasionally.

A field of daisies, hawkweed and an unknown yellow flower in Northern Ontario created a wonderful mosaic of colour.
