Photographs of the nature and landscapes of Southwestern British Columbia, captured during my early years of learning about photography and becoming a semi-professional. The book has four galleries, Valley (The Fraser Valley), Shore (seaside), Mountain, and Beyond (landscapes just east of Southwestern BC). Each photo is accompanied by background text.
I have been having my photographs published regularly since 1994, first in North America and later in Japan and the U.K. as well. Since 2005 I have been writing articles to go with my photographs. From the beginning I have been interested in landscape photography and more recently in mountain photography. Now based in Japan, I spend most of my photographic outings in the mountains of central Honshu. I continue to shoot with film and always travel with at least two cameras - a 35mm and a medium or large format camera as well. A few years ago I simply preferred film over digital. Now I simply can't afford digital. So for the time being, I do all my "serious work" with my film cameras and use a compact digital just for snapshots while on the trail.
