Old Man River reservoir near Pincher Creek, Alberta
  • I've been an architectural and commercial photographer in Vancouver since 1983. I've shot silk purses and sows' ears (really!) as well as theatre, executives and boilermakers. My preferred subjects are architecture and interiors. I've developed an excellent eye for buildings as photographic art.
  • My Work
  • I have a clean style with classic composition, strong contrast, and great textures. I provide architectural, commercial, corporate, and advertising photography services in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
  • Teaching
  • I will give you an introduction to the basics or I can help you to hone your already developing skills. You can learn in classes or one to one. I enjoy showing people how to see with a camera. I teach a class in architectural photography at Langara College and basic digital photography at False Creek Community Centre.
  • Stock Photographs
  • When I am not shooting specifically for clients, I flex my artistic muscles by shooting people, landscapes, cityscapes, events and travel. These stock photographs are available for use in advertising or editorial pieces.
