• Approaching Storm

This was my first-ever panorama. It was a timed exposure taken in buffeting winds and rain. My trusty old Mamiya RB67 was mounted on a tripod, but I had no carpenter's level in my kit yet. Even so, despite all odds this amazing scene of a dark line of thunderstorms turned out really well. I took it as a sign, and now have almost 300 panoramas in my gallery collection, most of which are here on my website.

Prints are made in my home photo lab, using the highest quality materials and methods. Having seen other photographers use low quality 3rd party ink and paper to save expense, I have instead continued to make sure that my own work is always giclee quality - ie of the highest standard possible.

Purchase my framed prints here online and pick up at the market, or have them shipped. My gallery display is located at the Gasoline Alley Farmers Market, 558 Laura Ave, Red Deer County.

In my own workshop and photo lab I am able to print and frame up to 22" x 120" maximum size on a printer specifically designed for panoramas. Prints larger than my maximum, including up to mural size, are available with the added help of my colleagues who have very large-format printers.

The folks here at the market have welcomed me warmly, the management has provided space to display, and I have installed overhead track lighting for a brighter display.

I now advertise custom printing for your photos, and custom frame-making for your own artwork. Being handmade, the custom frames have a wide variety of options and I enjoy doing these projects.

For other special concerns, for inquiry about prints-only or shipping outside of Canada for example, feel free to contact me by phone or email (preferred).
