2016-Jan 1

I was recently featured on Siftr as an inspirational photographer.

Siftr doesn't require you to upload photos as it sources them from your social media sites to build galleries and portfolios for you. You can then edit them very easily.

Firefighter Calendar


A project I have been co-ordinating with the Sooke Photography Club and Sooke Fire Department has been sent to the printers. It should be available for sale sometime in October. Proceeds from the calendar will be used to help train fire fighters in Boquete Panama.

Our photography club was given access to live fire training events, the fire hall and its members for creating spectacular images.
