I have always been drawn to cameras. I received my first camera at a very early age in 1968 -- a 2-¼ Rollei film camera. I later built my own darkroom where I developed film and printed images. Things have changed quite a bit with the digital world, but I still use my trusted old film camera to this day. I am presently studying at the New York School of Photography. I graduated from Algonquin College in the Photographic Arts Program and have taken photojournalism courses at Algonquin College and the Ottawa School of Photography. I have also completed the course training in Photoshop from basic throw to the advanced at Algonquin College. I started my photography career in sports and was published in Boat Racing Magazine for many years and awarded the 1985 and 1987 Grand Prix Hydroplane Photographer of the Year, voted by peers of Le Journal de Montréal and La Presse. My career was on hold while raising my children. Today, I strive to capture a skillful image that represents the individual or the subject matter I am photographing.
I am a certified public relations practitioner and continued my studies to obtain my certification in media communications from Algonquin College. I have a wide range of communication skills, with many years of experience. I have recently successfully completed the "Marketing & Communications in the Equine Industry" from the University of Guelph. My works have been published through blogs, articles and reports.
