My Photography

Usually, I like to look at things differently. Not in a shocking sense, just differently. The art I like best, be it music or painting or photography, should give me an emotional response. I want to feel the moment and not think about it. I like my photography to be viewed and experienced the same way.  (Most of the time, but not always.)


2023 Spark Photo Festival

I’ve partnered with another photographer (Ken Solilo) to create an exhibit for the 2023 SPARK Photo Festival.  This is also part of The Colborne Art Gallery’s opening show, SPLASH.

These are some of the photos on display in the gallery.

My photographic interests lean towards black & white and night images. I like the moody nature of “dark” where things aren’t always what they seem. But I also like colours, particularly when they are strong.

My landscape images often have a degree of surrealness to them. I recall what I was feeling at the point of capture and then creatively apply this to the image. I might have felt whimsical.  Or sad.  Sometimes I want to say something. Quite often, it’s a feeling of awe and a sense of amazement.

When I shoot, I know the initial photograph is just the starting point.  I usually have an idea of what I want as a final product but sometimes working on a photo yields new thoughts.  From experience, I know that a lot of the magic occurs during this editing.

I’m interested in quite a range of subjects. The galleries are a mix of these. What a viewer may notice is the few shots with people or animals as subjects. It’s not that I don’t have pictures of critters in my collection, it’s just a matter of sussing them out. With people, particularly in portraiture, there’s often a high degree of intimacy in the capture and editing of the photo. The photographer has to be comfortable working in this realm. You’ve likely heard that the eyes are a path to a person’s soul. As a photographer, when shooting everyday people, I believe this. Since it’s the eyes–tied in with their expression–that can make or break a great photograph, I need to work at capturing the essence of the person I see through my lens. A work in progress.
