Framed Ducks

While camping on the shores of Parkside Bay in Algonquin Park (August of 2006), I happened to spot a group of Common Mergansers. I thought it would be an excellent image, as they were swimming as a group. It would fulfill part of a photo challenge put to me by …

Flying Dragon

I managed to capture a number of great images from a July 2006 trip from Beamsville. This photograph was taken during a short hike at one of the local wineries. Tucked away in a clearing in the forest behind the winery was a small pond. This beautiful creature had landed …

Thoughtful Remembrance

Spring is always a great month to go to the zoo. The air is still crisp, which makes some of the animals a bit more active than normal (so they can keep warm). Sometimes you luck out and get a wonderfully sunny day, making the trek about the grounds enjoyable. …

Cornered

My cats are hilarious. One of them is afraid of everything on the planet. The other is inquisitive and is also, frankly, a camera hog. When they were kittens, the brave one explored the house while the “fraidycat” stayed in (or near) the pet carrier. This photo is one of the many that I …

Christine’s Cats

I love doing pet portraits for people. Animals have just as much personality as people do; it’s fun to capture what makes the pet special to the owner. My friend Christine had recently brought these two furballs home and wanted to capture the memory. I love cats because, even though they are solitary, …

Kolya

My parents adopted this Malamute who was gigantic but very passive. I offered to do some portraits of their new pet for a few reasons. First of all, my parents love photographs; secondly, a Malamute (like Huskies) have great fur whose pattern creates an awesome contrast regardless of the backdrop. …

Laila

Our cat Laila is a beautiful animal. A brown Tabby, her fur has a fantastic pattern; sleek and striped, she’s like a little tiger. What also helps capture her is the fact that she’s a total poser: as soon as she sees a camera, she sits perfectly still and swishes …

Daphne

A friend from work had seen my work (this photo) and wanted a portrait of her own pet. They lived close to the waterfront where there were lots of locations to choose from in regards to a place to do the portaits. Daphne was a sweet dog; very well behaved …

Logan

Both of our cats were very sweet, but one of them was an occasional lunatic. Logan was prone to chasing his own tail, misjudging distances while leaping, and bonking his head off the window while trying to get the pigeons outside. Regal was one of the last words that I would use …
