Welcome to my personal webpage, perpetually under construction.
Herein I share images and ideas. Hopefully you will find something that interests you.
Mar 27, 2005: After a long hiatus, I am finally thinking about photography again. This winter has
been a bad one, with no enthusiasm to shoot anything. Now that it's springtime (mostly), I am looking
forward to getting some shots in.
Aug 29, 2004: Yesterday I finally managed to find a Nikkor AF-S 18-70mm DX G lens for sale.
See my preliminary review of it in the Commentary section below.
I've been shooting a lot of bugs lately. Getting good shots can be tricky, and it's something
that I find interesting. The results of my recent efforts are in the Gallery of Bugs. I try to
accurately identify the bugs in question, but if you notice that I made a mistake then please let
me know so I can correct the error.
I'm still looking for someone in the Brampton/Orangeville area who would be interested in some
modeling work so I can work on a few ideas that I have for shoots. No bugs involved. 8-)
Do you want to know more about me?
Or perhaps you'd like to see some of my photography gear?
