As many of you noticed, I have lately re-designed my entire website. I have also cleared out my older blogs and I am starting fresh with this one. The main reason for the changes is that I want my site to now reflect my shooting style since I moved out to western Canada in 2013. I will now also restrict my galleries to about 15 to 20 of the best shots, per gallery, to keep the best quality shots for display. I appreciate all of the support people have shown for my photography over the years and I hope to keep getting the quality photos you expect from me and I expect from myself. I can be my own harshest critic and that is actually a good thing in photography. I compete with myself on every new shoot and try to top the photos from my previous shoots, each time. That is what I love about photography. I don't care how great the shots are from any other photographer, although I do draw inspiration from other's work. I only care that my own photos keep getting better and more interesting as I progress. This is a passion where you never rest on your laurels because there is always something new and interesting to shoot. Nature/wildlife photography presents its own special set of challenges and difficulties, but that is what makes this type of photography so fun and addicting. It's hard work and requires a passion for the craft, but the rewards make all the effort definitely worth it.
