Joys of highrise living is the height and a unique vantage point, from my 19th floor unit’s balcony.

Then one day a huge boom crane arrived and the assembly of the tower crane started,

The City of Ottawa is growing fast, this is another highrise going up in the neighbourhood. This one is 24 floors, across the road a 24 storey tower is nearing completion with a second 24 floor and two 32 storey towers on the same site. Beside the site of the tower crane in this photo essay will be yet another 24 floor highrise.

I am a self confessed techno-geek. While rooted in traditional analog photography, I have embraced the new technologies in photography. I am just as comfortable under the dark cloth of a large-format view camera, as I am with a digital camera. I can produce award winning photographs within the darkroom, or from a digital-desktop. With over 40 years of photography as a both hobby, and over 35 years within the professional arena I have always produced the highest quality product. I am self-taught in the digital media, I have been a PhotoShop user since 1995 (version 2.5) I found the transition fairly seamless due to my long experience in labs. I have been an Internet addict since early 1992. The digital imaging field I feel has opened up more flexibility in the final work, as art, photography and graphic design can all meet. I have worked within various Government photo units, as well as various professional labs. I can easily converse with a police forensic photographer as I can with a wedding sports or commercial photographer. I have worked for several of Ottawa’s top photographers. I have worked at several pro labs. As well as many years in photo retail. In 2007, the Camera Club of Ottawa honoured me by granting me Life Membership within the club. This was to honour all that I have done and still do for the Camera Club of Ottawa. I feel it has been my second home since 1970. Enjoy my website, and my images.
