Tell the group a bit about yourself; What kind of photography do you like to do? Do you considder yourself a novice or an expert? Would you like to teach or learn something about this amazing field? And finally, what kind of food can you cook?

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.

Are there any events that you would like to see us do as a group?

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.

Of every picture you have ever seen, what is the one that is the most striking, most memorable for you.

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.

If you could have one camera and one lense for the rest of your life to use for everything, based on what's out there now, what would you pick?

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.

Is there an event up and coming, or was there an event in history that you would have like to have been there to photograph and why?

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
