Bio

I'm a retired Information Technology executive who's had a life long interest in photography.

Some of the first money I earned on my paper route when I was 12 went for a camera. In high school I was a member of the camera club and had my own darkroom.

After earning my Master of Applied Science degree from the University of Toronto, I had a successful 30 year career in Information Technology.

Since my early retirement in January 2006 I’ve immersed myself in digital photography.

Photography stimulates me with the creative and technical challenges that have driven me through a lifelong approach to continuous learning.

Some recent work and accomplishments include:

Subway

Pricing

My services are quite flexible, but normally you will receive a disk with the following folders:

Full Size

These are the high resolution full size JPG files. I normally include several Black & White copies.

Web  Size

These are a low resolution copy of the files suitable for E-Mail or the web.

Gallery
index.html

In the Gallery folder, double click on index.html to see the pictures as a slide show in your browser. Pictures can automatically be played or selected from thumbnails.

I normally also provide the same gallery on my web site in a password protected folder. You can give the location and password to anyone with whom you want to share your pictures.

They will normally be available for 3 months.

I edit, crop and colour correct all the images I take.

Pricing depends on the complexity of the assignment which also determines the equipment I bring. My normal range is $125 to $200 per hour on site. This price includes the 2 to 3 hours of post processing done for each hour of shooting.

In addition I have some standard packages:

Basic In-home portrait session

$250
This includes group poses of up to 5 people in several locations within the house as well as individual poses.

Engagement Session

$250
Includes images on disk, and one 8x12 custom print.

Basic Wedding Package

$1,000
This includes 5 hour coverage, 5 8x12 custom prints (including retouching where appropriate), 3 disks with the high resolution images and access to your private web gallery for 6 months.

Wedding Package with album

$1,500
This includes 5 hour coverage, 5 8x12 custom prints (including retouching where appropriate), 3 disks with the high resolution images and access to your private web gallery for 6 months plus a 20 page custom 12 x 12 album.
