Back to My Roots

I often refer to myself as a landscape photographer even though the work I do is expanding into many different areas. These days I'm doing a lot of portraiture both professionally and in a number of personal photography projects I have on the go. Though I might be doing less than I used to I find landscape photography even more appealing than I have in the past. A precious longing persists!

If the reward is a good hike and getting some of that gorgeous Newfoundland air into my lungs I'll gladly accept the payment.

The beauty and variety of the landscape offers additional rewards.

Landscape photography is more than about the images. I like being out, turning into the wind closing my eyes, inviting the breeze to caress my face. Experiencing a personal relationship with Mother Nature. There is also a sense of freedom attached to the experience. It certainly is a lovely feeling, the present is the only moment and you can appreciate being connected to all this beauty.
