My Personal Legend
At a young age, I remember going through National Geographic magazines and dreaming of one day becoming a photographer. South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, and Zimbabwe, were country names that stuck with me. I knew nothing about these places, let alone how to even pronounce them, but I did know that I had to get these places one day.
My mother gave me an old Kodak Brownie camera and I started playing around, experimenting, and just seeing. Attempting to photograph just about anything and curious to see how these first images would turn out.
Eventually, I started working on cars and building race cars. I then landed a job as a technician in the printing industry. But photography was always nearby.
Finally, one Friday I quit my technician job and bought a one-way ticket to New York City. I arrived on Monday morning and said, now I am going to become a photographer.
I managed to work my way into a job with Jay Maisel. Life-changing to say the least. After 31/2 years with Maisel, I returned to Canada to begin my own photographic career.
Now, so very many years later, I still want to believe that I haven't stopped playing around, experimenting, and just seeing.
And yes, my first real trip was to South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, and Zimbabwe.
This website is my archive of the photographs I have made throughout my active life. This is the best of my adventures.
This is my Personal Legend, my life’s work so far…
