 I'm a serious amateur photographer who started much too late in life! The wonderful visual, connected world we enjoy gave me the catalyst to really improve.

So if you're interested, take a peek at some of my work below and click on the links too. Short travel videos sometimes accompany my travel articles.

In 2014, for the first time, one image was a finalist in McKinlay Kidd's annual photography contest. I also created a portfolio of my work in 2017 after a two-day photo shoot at Marriott's Shadow Ridge Golf Course in Palm Desert, CA, for sale in their pro shop.

Exhibited and published

Since 2006, my efforts have paid off and I have had my photographs purchased, published in books and many magazines and newspapers, as well as exhibited.
I have three images currently exhibited in the Penticton Art Gallery till January 17, 2021

 Both my published images can be viewed at the "Published" sets on my Flickr site here and the exhibited images here.


My photo portfolios can be accessed here and here.
