I’ve spent the last 35 years working as a freelance Artist, Photojournalist and Advertising Photographer. Rather than go to Art School; I turned to Art Directors and Photo Editors to help me hone my image making, in the fiercely competitive world of Freelance Photo Journalism and Advertising Photography.
I’ve had the honour of being a contributor to; TIME, NEWSWEEK, SPORTS ILLUSTRATED and THE NEW YORK TIMES. I was the only Canadian photographer put on exclusive contract by SPORTS ILLUSTRATED during the Calgary `88 Winter Olympics. At home, I have contributed to such Canadian publications as Maclean’s, Cosmopolitan, The Calgary Herald, The Financial Post, The Calgary Sun, The Globe & Mail and The National Post.
My work has also appeared in European and Asian publications such as NEWSWEEK JAPAN, DER SPIEGEL, and SEURA. Agency work has included Ogilvy & Mather, Saatchi & Saatchi, BBDO, TBWA\Chiat\Day. I’ve shot many annual reports for some of the world’s largest energy companies. Winning awards with my Designer Partners, has happened quite often.
These days; I spend my time on my personal Art projects. My work is held in some large corporate and prestigious private collections, mostly in North America.
