Falklands, South Georgia & Antarctica

Still digesting six weeks working in Antarctica as the Photographer is Residence for G Adventures. Having complete my 8th crossing to the white continent, it never ceases to amaze me how breathtaking this region of the world continues to be after multiple visits. 

Will follow-up with more galleries as I begin getting through almost 12 thousands photographers.

new gallery - easter island

I have uploaded a new gallery of Easter Island photographs, shot back in 2006. This is a destination that seems to have been photographed so much that the challenge of making my work unique, I choose to shooting with Infrared film.  This gave the subject matter a magical quality to a location already surrounded in mystery.

Support Dog Guides of Canada

Nothing more fun than photographing puppies!

These dogs are 4 weeks old and will be fostered to families for a year to socialize and then will be trained for the disabled. Blind, deaf and autistic individuals benefit from the Lion's Club of Canada and the Dog Guides Program. Their mother is doing just fine.

from Longyearbyen, Svalbard

Snow begins to fall outside my window at Guesthouse 102, in the sleepy town of Longyearbyen on the island of Svalbard. It's 11 PM and is still as bright as midday. The sun won't set tonight and it will stay light as we are in the land of the midnight sun. Tomorrow we set sail on the tall ship,  Antigua with an exceptional group of visual artists and writers. Throw in many with science backgrounds, and we have an eclectic mix of individuals who will all be working on their art projects with the arctic as their backdrop.

For me, I will continue documenting the polar regions, wildlife, isolation and will make this up as I go along. This will be my only blog post from this region as internet connections are non existent while at sea.
