I have packed a camera for most of my life, first for fun and later for work: my first newspaper job required me to roll film, shoot a manual SLR camera, and develop and print in a dark room. Since then most of my professional journalism has focused on writing, and I’ve been privileged to work with some of the world’s best professional photojournalists.

A few of my own photojournalism shots have also been published, locally and nationally in Canada, and globally by AFP/Getty. The  majority of my images, however, are not journalistic. I aim to see, and show, stories beyond the realm of words.


Photo challenge: accepted.

I am my own worst critic and, especially with photographs, need a nudge to publish my work. When my younger photographer son challenged me to take the 52-week 2019 photography challenge, organized by Dogwood Photography, I accepted. Gulp.

The challenge is not a competition; photographers “compete” only against ourselves – and commit to share our work in public. I will post each new weekly image  here.

This page is a work in progress; I’ll put up several photo projects currently underway. Meanwhile, in random order and with no particular theme, this slideshow includes some of my more recent images.
