My photography interests began in 2007 at which time I joined the St. Thomas Photographic Guild. It didn't take long to find out how much I truly enjoyed not only taking the pictures and improving my techniques but also editing them. It was not long before I began creating art from my photos and over the years have learned many techniques for doing so. My editing seems to take on a life of its own, similar to those who paint or make sculptures. I have been honoured to receive several People's Choice, Judge's Choice and Artist's Choice awards throughout the years and the awards seem to just spur me on to create new work and learn more techniques. I also have given tutorials on editing with Elements and how to create abstracts from photos including using textures.
Life is about learning and I continue to learn each and every time I pick up my camera or sit down to work on my photography and abstract photo art.
