About

I am a professional fine art photographer based in Stouffville, Ontario.  Though I have actively been making photographs for many years, the acquisition of my first DSLR camera a few years ago has opened up new creative channels.

My photography focuses primarily on nature and landscapes, though I have ventured into the world of abstraction, architecture, portraiture, and street photography. To me, photography is the art of communicating the feeling an object or scene invokes for me, deliberately. It’s about finding beautiful things in ordinary places. My photography has very little to do with what I see and everything to do with how I see them as well as how they make me feel. Call me a photographic impressionist, if you will. I want people to look at my photos and sense the experience I had when making them.

Lately, my focus has been on pursuing the art of photographic abstractions, using lighting, motion, and strong vertical elements to create several distinct series of photographs.

My photos have been featured in magazine articles, web sites, and brochures. 

Since 2017, I have been a member of the Stouffville Studio Tour, an annual showcase of local artists, which  allows me to showcase and sell my photos in a curated environment and connect to other artists in my region.

My intent, through blogging, is to share my photographs with a broader audience and be able to share, in words, some of my thoughts about the experience that goes along with the actual photo.

I hope you enjoy your visits to my website and recognize that all the photos are available in various sizes for purchase. Your support through purchases enables me to keep my equipment in good order and affords more opportunity to advance my passion.

  3. Ed, Thank you for following my blog.
    At the moment, I’m taking a hiatus from shooting for a few months.
    Look forward to picking up where I left off in the near future.

    How are your projects coming along??

    • I’ve made a self-imposed commitment to post one image per day. That has been ‘interesting’ as weather conditions have been a challenge, yet it pushes me to continually create and refine. Looking forward to browsing through your images as time allows.

  4. Thanks for stopping by and deciding to follow my blog. I have not been doing a lot of personal photography lately. Life just gets busy elsewhere and takes away from my photo time. I enjoyed looking at your work. It is fun exploring a lot of different types of photography. I have been doing more black and white shots lately myself. Keep up the good work. Best Wishes!

    • Thanks, I enjoyed browsing through many of your images and like your style. I’m a bit of a photo opportunist and tend to make images of whatever grabs my attention focussing on sharing the ‘subtleties’ most people miss when looking at common scenes. Best to you as well.

  9. “It’s about finding beautiful things in ordinary places.” The next time someone asks me why I carry a camera, I’m going to quote you. Good stuff.

  10. You wrote: ‘about the experience that goes along with actual photo’…yes indeed, that small world of magic that is ever expanding. Kindred spirits.

  11. Thank you for liking my post. I am definitely not a photographer, especially when I use my little flip-phone as I did for those pictures. Your pictures are beautiful!

  12. Thanks Ed for being such a constant ‘liker’ of my images. I really appreciate your presence on my blog site (Musings from the cold: https://sharonpittaway.com/) and the subtle encouragement it gives me.
    Your images are truly lovely and I’ve enjoyed spending time wandering through your ‘gallery’. Thanks for sharing your work.

  14. Hello Ed, I am pleased that you found the blog where I write about Photography. I discuss a different subject each week.
    Now that I know about you I will be wandering your site looking at the images you post and reading your thoughts regarding the subjects you choose to photograph.
    Nice to be in contact.

    • I found your blog through Belinda Grover. Always nice to expand connections. I post daily, it’s a way to force me to write and think more deliberately about my photos.

      • Thats great Ed. I’ll look forward to your posts.
        I did write a bit about myself. If you are interested in the “About” section on my blog page.

  15. I keep telling myself to purchase a “good” camera to take the shots I see in my gardening business, but have not yet. I am still using my cell phone camera LOL

  16. Good work here. Sensitive. I love your treatment of the Rainbow Trout.

    Thank you for taking the time to visit http://www.rivenrod.com. Much appreciated.

    I am fascinated by the marvels our tiny planets offers as well as the antics of its inhabitants so you can be sure I’ll catch up with what you’re doing as often as I can.

    I look forward to our next encounter.

  17. I’m humbled that you noticed my amateur photography blog, and grateful since I now have found your gorgeous photos. Even if they do make me feel like I ought to hang up the camera and just enjoy other people’s offerings.

  18. Hi Ed, Amy from Bedlam and Daisies sent me the link to your site, because we were discussing Iceland. I was there for a month last year, a life changing experience. I look forward to seeing your photos! Erica
