I started taking pictures when I was 16, at the same time I started climbing, and I have been active in the outdoors and photography for my whole life. My career as a photographer began by attempting to get my work displayed in local galleries and after meeting with some success I decided somewhat naively, that I wanted to make a living as a photographer. I did fairly well with it and so in the late 80's I created my own publishing company to expand the market for my work beyond fine art prints. The success of this venture kept growing and ultimately I ended up owning two of my own retail outlets in Banff, Alberta.

I could have stuck with that, however I was distracted by my interest in climbing and drifted away from full time photography for a few years to open an indoor climbing gym in Canmore. My wife and I ran this for five years before realizing that we would not be feeding our two young children off the income of operating a climbing gym. So what to do next......

Computers had started to make their way into the photography industry and after some serious reluctance I started to explore the possibilities of their use for my work. Because I had always been a colour photographer I was very frustrated with photographic printing. In the early days, I had done a lot of Cibachrome printing for my gallery prints, however the lack of consistency and problems with producing decent colour accuracy, (not to mention dealing with those harsh chemicals) left me looking for new ways to produce colour prints. I took a liking to computer applications and worked my way up to becoming an Adobe Certified Instructor for several Adobe applications including Adobe Photoshop.

I now work for the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology as an instructor in the Graphic Communications and Printing Technology program. In photographic terms I am still very active and have just finished my second book on landscape photography:
