I'm a retired engineer from British Columbia, Canada that took up photography for something to do. My favorite painters are Georgia O'keeffe, Canadians Lauren Harris and the forest paintings of Emily Carr. Another current painter I like is Santa Fe artist Margaret Nes. My favorite photographer is Freeman Paterson. I'm self-taught. I use Canon digital equipment. Many of my images have been featured in public art galleries and juried shows and quite a few prints have been sold. My images have also been used by government agencies and non-profit groups (like naturalist organizations) in their publications.
