I prefer outdoor photography as I live very close to the mountains in Banff, Alberta. There are many wild animals and beautiful mountain scenes in Banff as well I live in the Prairie area of Alberta and love to get out various times of the year looking for things to photograph. I also enjoy painting some of the photographs I take in watercolor. I consider myself a knowledgeable novice and am always willing to learn more about this fascinating field. Since I am retired and my wife still works, I have taken up the duties of cooking.
I would love to see events such as wedding photography, wildlife photography, pet photography and scenic photography. I would also like to see some feedback of various photographs I have taken over the years as to how to improve them, etc.
I do not think I have a single picture that is more memorable to me than others. When I am out looking for things to photograph I am looking for that photograph that I could use for a watercolor painting and I have found quite a few that I would consider memorable.
I have the Canon EOS 7D camera with three lenses, however, I like to use my 70 to 200 mm 2.8 zoom lens, as it allows me to do more of the kind of photography I enjoy.
I would have liked to have been around for the opening of the Banff national Park when it was wild and remote, unlike today when there are thousands of people using the park every day. Unfortunately, today the wild animals are not seen readily in the wild areas of the park, but more so within the town site of Banff itself because of the ease of the animals obtaining food
My name is Bruce Heming, and I live in Strathmore Alberta, Canada. I am a retired lawyer and ex police officer who did police identification work which included photography.Since that time I have developed a strong interest in photography.
