About

SMA Tom 2_resizeWhile I love photographing most subjects, I am especially attracted to architecture, landscapes, abstracts and graphics, and travel scenes. I’ve studied photography with Freeman Patterson and André Gallant in New Brunswick, Richard Martin in Kingston, Michael Tardioli and Harry Nowell in Ottawa, and David Preston in New York City.

I am based in Oakville, Ontario, and have been a member of the Latow Photographers Guild in nearby Burlington since 2008. I was a member of the Camera Club of Ottawa for 11 years before moving to Oakville about five years ago.

My images have been in juried shows at the Art Gallery of Burlington/Burlington Art Centre,  Beaux Arts Brampton, McMaster Innovation Park in Hamilton, and galleries in Oakville and Ottawa. I’ve had images published in Photolife, Outdoor Photography Canada, and Photo Ed, and an article in Canadian Camera, the magazine of CAPA — the Canadian Association of Photographic Art.   Oh yes, and the cover of the Manotick (ON) large-print phone directory.

Most of my serious photography has been with Pentax SLRs (film since 1963 and digital since 2004), but lately I have taken up the Micro Four Thirds format (Olympus E-M5) for its combination of portability and quality.
