I have always loved Black & White photography. It's what I cut my teeth on back in the mid 70s when I started out on my photographic journey. While the genre has always maintained some popularity, I have had few opportunities to showcase my B&W imagery over the years as the genre was never high up on my clients' lists. This changed a little this year with a couple of publications featuring my Black & White photography. Outdoor Photography Canada magazine recently featured an article that I illustrated in the latest issue (#44) of the magazine. 'A Black & White Primer' introduces the topic. A second article by colleague Wayne Simpson explores the medium further in his article 'Lifting the Veil of Colour'. Also, check out my newest calendar called 'CANADA in Black & White' by Wyman Publishing.

The 10th Anniversary (Winter 2017) issue of Outdoor Photography Canada Magazine is now at the newsstands. Congratulations to editor Roy Ramsay and the staff at OPC! Ten years ago, I began writing and illustrating a feature called 'Discovering Canada' in each issue of the magazine. With this 40th issue, I explore the northwestern region of Ontario, the Lake of the Woods area in and around Kenora that borders the eastern side of Manitoba. Each issue of the magazine features interesting and topical articles by some of Canada's finest nature and outdoor photographers ... and the images aren't too shabby either! In every issue, editor Roy Ramsay runs a profile with an interview and portfolio of images from either an aspiring or seasoned photographer. And there is much, much more too! I invite you to have a look and join us!

In the latest issue of Outdoor Photography Canada magazine, I look at one of Canada's rarest ecosystem, the 'tall grass prairie'. Situated barely an hour south of Winnipeg near Tolstoi, Manitoba, it's a place that I have visited on numerous occasions. Check out the story and photographs in the Winter 2014 issue of Outdoor Photography Canada magazine, Canada's finest outdoor magazine!
In the latest issue of 'Outdoor Photography Canada' Magazine (Summer/Fall 2013), I illustrate an article and discuss some of my favorite lighthouses captured on the Canadian East Coast. I have been producing the feature 'Discovering Canada' every issue since its inception back in 2007. The magazine is available at your favorite newstand or through subscription.

Roy Ramsay founded 'Outdoor Photography Canada' magazine more than 5 years ago following a lifelong passion for magazines that started as a kid. In his latest blog post - 'What Do Photographers Feel When They Take A Photograph' - he talks about what he feels when he is photographing and illustrated the short piece with beautiful photographs. While he speaks from a very personal point of view, his thoughts resonate with many of us I am sure. I know I feel much the same way. Well said Roy!
