My Photo Portfolios


Since buying my first dSLR, I have travelled extensively and recorded my adventures and explorations in thirty portfolios. Some of them are featured below. 

 

AFRICA REVISITED 2019

This portfolio records my three-week safari through Namibia, Botswana, and Zimbabwe with a small group. I stayed in wonderful lodges in or near the national parks and twice in bush camps while journeying by land, river, and air. The Namibean Desert astonished me, and I saw my first leopard in the wild. Highlights include seeing three lionesses with six cubs resting in the heat and over 1000 elephant in Hwange NP.

 

UNITED ARAB EMIRATES 2018

After a month in India, I flew to the UAE and spent eight days in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The culture shock was huge and I revelled in the cleanliness and order of the country. I spent time in the desert outside Dubai, as well as in the two cities. The highlight was an afternoon in the world-famous, modern Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi. Every corner I turned during the week revealed another photo op!

INDIA 2018: THE LAND OF THE MAHARAJAS

I spent three weeks exploring Rajasthan last November after arriving in Delhi during Diwali. Everywhere the faces and colour captivated me and my camera. But the highlight was three days at the Pushkar Camel Fair that takes place when the moon is full. This is also the story of forts, palaces, and temples, as well as rural life.

 

PHOTO OPS 2017

This was the year I moved from Vancouver to Penticton in BC's wine country. This photo journey into my new home covers the vineyards, orchards and small towns in the Okanagan Valley, which is semi-arid and desert-like in the south. I had a new Nikon D500 and delighted in the discoveries of so many photographic opportunities close by.

THE ANCIENT KINGDOM OF MOROCCO
 
My travels in April 2017 returned to Africa. I explored Morocco from north to south, east to west in a photographic extravaganza that lasted a month. I marvelled at the Imperial cities, the vast mountains, the Sahara, and the medinas. I also stayed in a traditional riad or guesthouse in Fes for a week and took a full-day cooking school. This is the photo journal of my experiences.

THREE WEEKS, FIFTEEN ISLANDS

The Scottish Hebrides 2014

 

This portfolio follows my exploration of the Inner and Outer Hebrides off Scotland's northwest coast. I travelled by land, sea and air from Arran in the south to Lewis in the north. One of many highlights was a week's cruise on a converted trawler that visited Mull, Staffa, and Iona, and included a wildlife safari too. Another was landing on the beach at Barra in the Outer Hebrides.
