Canadian Photohunter, Coquitlam Member Since March 2009 Artist Statement I cannot recall when I first took a camera. But, surely, one day I did.
Sitting in photo darkroom for hours and hours, or mixing chemicals driving my grandma crazy, or wandering around taking picture after picture after picture - what else I remember about my school years? Virtually nothing. Yeah, I did attend a school and had learned something from it… had I not?
Eight years in university was even better. I was able to focus my study on aerial and space photography and digital processing of the images. It was fun, indeed. Looking through my pictures you can notice my passion to panoramas – now you know where it came from: stitching bunch of aerial photographs into king size sheet was a must for a land surveyor at these times.
Meanwhile, falling in love with caves, mountains, and Arctic, I have explored a lot of pristine and remote places of our planet, surely, carrying a camera. If I failed to make pictures from a trip I feel I have not been in the trip and have to go again.
Since my kids were grown enough to go wild, I do not have to work like a slave on a galley day and night to make money for them, I can eventually do what I always liked most – taking pictures of whatever Mother Nature made and makes.
