I was born and raised on an acreage just north of the Town of Stony Plain, Alberta. There I had the freedom to have a variety of pets and enjoy the great outdoors. For this I have always been grateful.
I first started getting into photography when my horse was born in 1998. I felt the beauty, grace, strength, and power of him needed to be captured and remembered. Pictures were able to translate the moments that words could not fully describe. He sadly passed away on January 3, 2013 at the young age of 15. He will always be remembered through my memories and the photos.
This wonder of photographing my horse has challenged me over the years to capture the same moments and emotions I felt towards other animals and their environments. I have been impressed with the way light would play off a forest and highlight the animal hidden within or to get up close and see the emotion in an animals eyes.
