Photos from my BC canoe trip

Hi everyone, I was away for three weeks paddling, hiking and climbing mountains in the British Columbia wilderness. It was an amazing time. I took a 35mm camera a 120mm pinhole camera and a huge 4x5 Graflex camera. I have been slowly developing and scanning my photos. I have added two new galleries. The Galleries are called Garibaldi Park BC, Powell River BC and Pinhole BC. I hope that you enjoy them.

New Gallery

Painting It turns out I can paint, who knew? I have complete three painting so far. I'm excited at this new opportunity to expand my artistic skills.

Another New Gallery!

Archival Art I have started working with found objects, specifically gloves that I have found while walking around Toronto. The concept is to take a lost item, clean it and present it in a context where it can be considered as art.

Upcoming Show

Four of my Archival art pieces will be on display at the Gerrard Art Space, Their upcoming show is titled The Archive Show, March 30 – April 17, Reception Saturday April 2nd, 3pm – 6pm.

My New Camera!

Hi everyone, I would like to introduce you to my new camera. It's a Graflex 4x5 Large Format Speed graphic Press Film Camera, it was built in the 1940's used mainly by photojournalists. I've placed one of my 35 mm camera in front to give you some perspective. This behemoth comes in at 5.6 pounds. In the photo of the 3 sizes of film, the bottom is 35mm, the middle is 120mm and the top is 4"x5" film that loads one sheet at a time in the back of the Graflex. I give my cameras nicknames I'm calling this big boy Beast. We are going to have some fun! As soon as I learn how to use it...

New Gallery

I have added a new gallery. It's titled Algonquin, it features photos from my recent trip to Algonquin Park.
