"So what am I doing with the classic view cameras?...Well, I like to reduce the subject materials to their simplest form. Also, I like to expand how we see abstraction in photographs."

"More to the point, I take pictures with 4"x5" and 8"x10" view cameras, lots and lots of pictures. By the current paradigm, I make quite small b/w prints from 4"x5" and 8"x10"; contact prints up to 11"x14" enlargements. I believe that small prints have a lot of aesthetic presence, rather than the histrionic presence of large prints."

"I've lived in Kitchener since 1965, and shortly fell in love with the lush southern Ontario landscape. My photographs are taken in all seasons, but I have a special interest in winter photography. My teachers and mentors Howard Bond, Stuart Nudelman, and Norman Rothschild have given me a lot of coaching, for which I am very grateful. Although photography is a medium based on technology, the important part of my background are the people.The arts community in Waterloo Region is a growing and vital one. My fellow photographers are not my competition; I see us as all being in this together. "

"Most of my life I have been focused upon the persuit of the image and it's meaning, both the obvious and metaphorical, while using a wide variety of media to bring that to a new reality. I have made explicit attempts to engage the most important personal and emotional and beautiful images in my works. I realize I have had the extravagance of doing much of my artwork for the sheer pleasure of doing it, after all what is more important to an artist than the doing of the art? The mainstay of all my work is my sketchbook and the time involved in developing ideas from memories and life-experiences. "
