In a recent post, I mentioned a number of artists who have inspired and influenced me in my current profession as a photographer. Inspiration of course may come at different times in one’s life. In the acknowlegements section of my ‘Georgian Bay’ book (2008), I wrote: “ I am forever grateful to the following:
… Gerard Courtin for writing the introduction to this book and also for sharing with so many of us at Laurentian University over the years your passion about the environment and your enthusiasm for teaching. There is often one teacher who stands out in one’s life and you have been that one for me”. It was also an honour for me to dedicate the book 'Georgian Bay' to Gerard Courtin.
