Originally from a small village in Newfoundland, I am a Aboriginal of Qalipu Mi’kmaq First Nation Band here in Canada. I developed his sensitivity with the land and sea. My photography education in Nova Scotia as well as New York was further enhanced by hands-on experience with renowned photographers like Art Wolfe and Betty Wills. I actively seek collaborative projects with other photographers and embrace the value of life-long learning and study found in the perspectives of other artists.I do teach phototherapeutic Photography with children and adults with disabilities to help them on a their journey of self knowledge and spiritual growth through photography .

I offer a variety of workshops and seminars for photography enthusiasts and professionals. I will guide individuals to discover their own contributions to create desired images in any environment. In working with self-awareness and spirituality, I culminate an inspiration to powerful artistic vision and expression that reaches my audience.

My vision and passion as a photographer translates into the learning from each other; whether you are a professional or an amateur, behind the camera or the lens, the contribution will reveal itself. Visual media is a powerful expression unique to each person, each photo tells a story.

Additional social and visual media interests lead me to my radio show Nikon “Northern Exposure” ( Interviews, phototips and helpful resources can be found. Some of my pictures can be found on my website:

Please take time to visit Environment Canada's travelling Exhibit for the next three years, from coast to coast "The Weather and Us" which includes my work. Golden Alliance of Canada display my images in Qingdao China for their exhibition of Canada Fisheries.

If you live in the area, come out and take one of my courses at Acadia University. We will be having an enjoyable semester exploring photography with in-class sessions and field trips.
