See the new line-up of courses and workshops that I teach. The course descriptions are published on my site. Jump to Workshops and Courses to see them as they are developed and published. Courses are taught at the Helen Schuller Nature Centre, in Coaldale at the CLCLC, in Taber at Community Adult Learning, in Fort Macleod at various locations and we hold regular classes in Lethbridge at our offices there. Watch this site for more information.

The Portrait Project that Ive been working on for the last couple of years is amazing. I have had lots of great people give me their spare time to help with this epic quest. They come from all walks of life and backgrounds and we have all become good friends during our sessions together.

So whats it all about? Well a couple of years ago I realized that I was going to be slowing down a bit and would have time enough to work on some projects that I have wanted to do for a long time. One of those projects was the Portrait Project.

The idea was to create a number of very specialized portraits that would eventually be printed on large gicle canvases that will travel across the country in a show and many will be included in a book I want to publish at the same time and will be available at these shows.

Some of them will be included as stock images to be sold all over the world commercially as well. My retirement program includes contributing to stock agencies so that residual income will keep coming in for as long as Im alive

and beyond.

The images are created over several hours of shooting at my studio in Coaldale and sometimes over a couple or few sessions. We have a lot of fun and do a lot of laughing during the sessions and Ive never had anyone unhappy as far as I can tell from the feedback.

I anticipate that the project will wind down around the summer of 2014 and the printing will be done after that followed by the book.

Are you interested in becoming part of this project? Ill definitely make it worth your while by giving you a free 11x14 print for each session we have together

I might caution you what this is not. is an opportunity for you to have a family photo session or anything else. This is strictly for my showcase. If you need a family portrait, feel free to contact me and arrange the session. Have a look at my pricing and terms tab on the left of this page for more information.
