Welcome!

Welcome to my photography blog!

I fell in love with photography in high school in 1983. We had a photo lab in the school I went to: we were able to sign out cameras, spool our own film, shoot, develop the film and then develop the prints. I loved the whole process, and was hook by being able to tell complex stories with a single image.

I bought my own SLR (a Canon T70) in 1986 while in the Canadian Air Force. I spent that summer discovering photography on my own timeline in Camp Borden, and Toronto when I had time to myself.

In 1987, I landed in University doing an Engineering degree. I was able take my camera with me most everywhere, and shot some really interesting things. That all took a back seat to my engineering career after graduation.

I've been shooting a DSLR for 3 years or so. I bought a Canon T1i soon after it came out, and upgraded to a Canon 7D in the Spring of 2012 after my skills had outgrown the T1i.

I consider myself mostly a portrait photographer, but I like to shoot almost anything for the variety and the experience.

With this blog, I'd like to look at some of the images I've taken, and explore the decisions I've made with them. I feel that the only way to get better at something is to decompose it and be critical. I'd like to look at both good images and bad images, and explore them equally.

Dear reader, if you'd care to participate by commenting on my musings, I would be most appreciative! Pointing out things that you see - or don't see - in the images in these pages, will offer me a fresh view through a different set of eyes; and for that I thank you in advance!

Thanks for visiting!

Sincerely,
Greg
