Learning to See & Painting with Light.
"Keeping photography fun is an exciting task. Endless resources of information and much to learn without any pressure or expectations. The idea of recording the world onto single frames is an exercise that forces a closer look at light, colors and shapes. Either it be at home on quiet Prince Edward Island or the occasional travel to much larger destinations, a camera in hand has become as common as carrying identification. The desire to become better is stronger than ever but at the end of each day; it's still all for fun."
Living on a small island in Atlantic Canada, I have had the fantastic opportunity to live a life as a full-time artist. For the past 11 years, I have held the title of user experience designer and illustrator at silverorange, working with a variety of interesting projects, including Mozilla Firefox and TinEye.
But when not designing products, the art of photography is a full-time daily creative exercise for personal and commercial work. Selected clients include Parks Canada, Prince Edward Island & Charlottetown Tourism and PEI 2014.
My path to photography started with the fine art of traditional painting. It was not until after installing that first pixel editing application in 1997, that I quickly migrated into the digital medium trading in my inks, paints and brushes. Immersed in the world of editing images, illustrations and page layouts made for the natural progression into making photographs of my own in 2001.
