Capturing Buckhorn 2021-2022
My dad loved taking travel photos. He bought me my first camera as a young teen and from then I saw the world through the lens. I realized photography was going to be my profession when I started taking photos of moments with strangers, friends, animals and anything that looked good to me.
I was lucky enough to be given a break in my late teens to freelance for the North York Mirror. This was so invaluable to the start of my career as you had to learn how to photograph just about everything from hockey to events indoors.
My professional career over the last 40 years has included many clients with much of my work for The Canadian Press. As a freelance event and portrait photographer I never had to take a break from my passion.
My husband and I decided to purchase a small cottage on Lower Buckhorn Lake in the Kawarthas. Having a second home in this beautiful and new-to-us area allowed both of us so many new photographic opportunities.
The magnificent ever-changing view from our cottage inspired me to explore landscape and nature photography more. I have been able to share my work on the local Facebook pages and have been delighted to sell a number of canvases.
I feel I have only touched the surface of so many images still to come and I look forward to many days ahead in the Buckhorn area.
