Great photography is about depth of feeling...

not depth of field. Peter Adams

Welcome to SMP

Taking pictures is something I’ve been doing since I was a young lad growing up in the Ottawa Valley using my Dad’s Pentax SLR. The first camera of my own was a Canon AE-1 and I continue to use Canon equipment today. My photographic interests are varied, including nature (particularly birds) and landscape photography, while recently much time has been devoted to the areas of portrait, engagement and wedding photography. Blogging is a whole new world for me and the purpose of this blog will be to highlight recent work which can also be seen by clicking on the gallery button above.
