Bio

headshot image

I've spent the last 35 years working as an Artist, Freelance Advertising Photographer and Photojournalist. Rather than go to Art School; I turned to Art Directors and Photo Editors to help me hone my image making.

I have contributed work to; TIME Magazine, NEWSWEEK, SPORTS ILLUSTRATED and THE NEW YORK TIMES. I worked for SPORTS ILLUSTRATED during the Calgary `88 Winter Olympics.

At home, I've contributed to such Canadian publications as Maclean's, Cosmopolitan, The Calgary Herald, The Financial Post, The Calgary Sun, The Globe & Mail and The National Post.

My work has also appeared in European and Asian publications such as NEWSWEEK JAPAN, DER SPIEGEL, and SEURA.

 Agency work has included Ogilvy & Mather, Saatchi & Saatchi, BBDO, TBWA\Chiat\Day. I take select photographic assignments that dovetail with my creative interests.

I'm a product of Advertising, Art & Photojournalism, ... mixed and baked.

My work is held in some prestigious private and corporate collections.

I work out Vancouver, Canada.
