I’m a photographer living on Pender Island, one of the southern Gulf Islands located off the coast of British Columbia, Canada. The ocean and rugged shorelines surrounding me are a constant inspiration and figure prominently in my photographs. I also draw influence from artists such as Toni Onley and Takao Tanabe, who are well-known for their interpretations of the west coast landscape.

Thanks for your decision to share your images. Natural beauty is always a welcome respite from the sensational and often violent nature of other “news” items.

Your photo’s are absolutely stunning. So nice to ‘meet’ someone from overseas with the same passion for the beauty around us and capturing it in wonderful photo’s… Thanks for sharing!
Thanks for your kind words! I feel the same way about you and your work.
You are truly a talented photographer – I kept gasping for air while looking at your photography… It portraits the sheer beauty of nature and you can capture it in such a fantastic way – chapeau!!! Keep up the good work!!!
Thank you very much for your encouraging words. P.S. Chapeau??
“chapeau” means “hat” in French – it is a term we often use if someone is doing something really really good, then we kind of take our hats off in front of that person, like saluting the person, or bowing, because it’s just such a great achievement. You know what I mean?
Thanks for the explanation! I will file that away for future reference. 🙂
You have an interesting blog. Thanks
As do you. Thanks very much!

What a wonderful portrayal of island scenes off British Columbia; love the atmospheric sea and land shots. I’m hooked! It’s an area i know little about, and this really puts the destination on the map for me.
Thank you very much!
Great to see photos from your part of the world. The one you have used here is just beautiful…so peaceful looking. I’d love to sit on the steps and ponder life. Best wishes from Brisbane, Australia.

Such great pictures on your blog- absolute delight! ❤
I didn't find a like button for some, but I want you to know- they are just stunning.
Thank you! I don’t know why the like buttons are missing on some posts, but who can fathom the inner workings of WordPress.
Ha- true! I guess because I went to your gallery, not the blog, which is “portfolio” without like buttons/share.
Ah- such delightful pictures they are!
Oh, I get it…right, there are no like buttons for the gallery. And thank you!
So happy to have found your blog with such wonderful photos of our beautiful Gulf Islands, particularly as we share a love of Tony Onley’s work. I look forward to following you in the coming months. Best wishes.
Thanks for following! I’ve just come from checking out your site. You do lovely work!

Each photo you post brings me new perspective on our world. i truly appreciate your work. thank you for sharing and for commenting on my work. it means a lot. (even when i manage to lose the comment into cyber space as i just did with your kind words on my watercolor of spring ephemeras.) Anyway, Thank you!
Thank you, Holly! (I left another comment. 🙂 )
I’ve got a mundane gear question for you. You do a lot of daylight long exposures, so I’m assuming you use an ND filter. I’d like to start playing around with long exposures, but ND filter shopping is a bit overwhelming with no experience to guide me. Do you have a recommendation for a brand that is economical with only mild color shift, and do you have a suggestion for which which density (how many stops) to start with? I’m trying to get the most bang for the buck when I don’t know how much I’ll be using it. (If you get the long exposure effect through stacking in PP, you can ignore this!)
I have a 6-stop and 9-stop ND filter, as well as a polarizer. I use Hoya screw-in filters, which are of a reasonable quality with little colour shift, and they aren’t too expensive. If you can just get one, I’d get the 6-stop first. Hope this helps!
It does, thanks!
