I am a fine art photographer living with my family in Guelph, Ontario. Over the last 10 years I have also lived and worked in Tanzania (East Africa) and England, travelling extensively throughout both countries plus South Africa, France, Germany and Switzerland.

I devote my free time to creating Portraits of Earth – the art in nature and all her moods. Besides offering photography workshops, I teach the Landscape Photography and Travel Photography courses at Mohawk College in Hamilton. Commercial photography has included a wide range of clients and jobs from photographing downhill skiing for Hershey Alpine to chicken barns for the Chicken Producers of Ontario. Most recently, I’ve been doing photography for Vortex Canada – a distributor of high-end spotting scopes, binoculars and gun scopes.

I’ve put together this blog and website to help people new to photography gain a better understanding of the craft and help develop the vision to make your photography more enjoyable and successful. I look forward to hearing from you – your questions, comments and suggestions are welcome!

      Hi Ian,
      Great site and great location. Love the idea of the Ball and the Pen – creative colourful images, too! We’ve visited the Western Cape twice and just fell in love with the landscapes and the people. Good luck with the print sales.

    Hey Terry,

    I came across your site by accident looking for locations to shoot in Guelph. I thought, “no way, That can’t be my photo editor from the Ontarion”. Took a look at your blog pic and notice you still have the Tom Selleck moustache. Anyway, couldn’t just pass up an opportunity to say hello to a former Guelph Alumnus.

    I teach art and media at Bishop Macdonell in Guelph. I mostly shoot for my own interest, but if you ever want to view my direction you can peek at some of the galleries on my photo blog at
