In 2001 a chance conversation with a local photographer renewed my interest in photography. I began experimenting with different equipment and cameras. I took several photography courses and tried to get out each weekend to take photographs. I moved to digital in 2005 and joined a photography group in 2008. I enjoy most kinds of photography as I love colour, light and shadow and their interaction. For my fifth SPARK exhibit I have concentrated on a series of cityscapes which I have taken over the past few years.
My photographic interests are diverse, include both colour and black and white, and are stimulated by my travels. I graduated from Humber College for Photography and have worked as a stills photographer in the television and catalogue industries, have been an AV technician in news and entertainment programming, and have produced a photo-documentary of the “Beaches” of Toronto. This will be my fifth SPARK exhibit at the Bridgenorth Library.
I am delighted to participate for my sixth consecutive year exhibiting in this great space at the Bridgenorth Library. My images explore a variety of subject matter: landscapes from recent travels in Canada and England, encounters with nature through the seasons and urban themes. I continue to experiment with texture and light to evoke an impressionistic atmosphere to engage the viewer. A number of my images this year were captured with a camera phone I used on my travels.
SPARK year six already and still going strong! Nature continues to be my primary inspiration but, of course, there will be new elements. A few fungi? a scattering of leaves? a medley of mosses? a landscape or two? Perhaps less abstraction than in the last few years?
My nature-loving fans from previous SPARK exhibits will find both continuity and change. As always, I'm pursuing photographic opportunities as mother nature and regional conservation areas send them my way, then curating my output to fit our specific exhibit space.
