Step 1: Take responsibility for the light.

Step 2: Take responsibility for the composition.

Step 3: Press the damn button.

Deceptively simple, yet the essence of what makes an interesting photograph. From shutter release to Photoshop to printing press, it’s a commitment to making that initial mental image a real, tangible item.

It can be about capturing memories, a mood, cool shadows, geometry, or the smile of a certain someone. Maybe all of the above.

I am a photographer from the Wet Coast (not a typo – a fact) of Canada.

After a 25 year hiatus to deal with the realities of adulthood (fyi: as over-rated as it is necessary), I’ve re-entered the world of photography. I do occasionally miss developing and printing my own work, however, the comfort of digital editing with coffee at hand is not to be underestimated.

I’m currently shooting with Fujifilm XT-10 & X-Pro1 cameras, using Fujinon 18mm and 35mm primes, XC16-50 zoom, and a Pentax 50mm adapted lense. Every two months or so, I talk myself out of buying a twin lens reflex just because they look cool.
