Photography could clearly fall under “Arts,” but it’s my preferred art form and this page is my online gallery. My preference is influenced, I’m sure, by my wickedly talented mom; my favourite photographer, by far. She doesn’t shoot much anymore because she likes doing her own darkroom work. She’s more into watercolour, but I have high hopes she’ll take up the camera again with a little encouragement from friends!
I started out as official Camera Porter in Laos, Nikons slung around my neck à la Dennis Hopper in Apocalypse Now, chasing my mom as she dove headlong into any situation to Get. The. Shot. I inherited my shameless grit and love of adventure from her, and if I’d had the talent, I’d have been a photojournalist.
As it is, I’m a collector on the sidelines, but happy to have a great seat.
