PHOTOGRAVURE

Started out as a black & white photographer, I eventually got very interested in historical photographic processes which led me to the Mecca of photography, Rochester NY, home of Kodak and the Visual Studies Workshop where I spent time learning about the various early methods of photography. I feel in love with the photogravure process and started producing images in one of the earliest printing method which is closely related to the classic method of etching.

TINTYPE STUDIO

Along with my photographer friend Archie MacLellan we created an authentic 1860’s Tintype Studio. We were the only in Canada- and only the second in North America using the original wet plate collodion process. The studio is still running in the historic recreated village of Sherbrooke, Nova Scotia.

New Film & Book Project

Presently I’m involved in a fascinating project, with my brother Chris who’s writing the book, book, we’ve been interviewing “Back to the Land”who came to Nova Scotia in the early 70’s. The book and documentary film will be full of great characters and stories illustrating the positive affect this movement has on Nova Scotia. Stay tuned soon for more details .
