Engaging Talks & Visual Presentations
Having traveled the globe for more than 20 years as a photographer, art/photo instructor, tour leader and accredited photo adjudicator/judge, I have a rich assortment of images, plus presentations on a variety of subject matter.
If you, your company, group or organization is looking for a teacher and speaker with sumptuous visuals and an enthusiasm for sharing travel stories, photography tips and/or timely information relating to sustainability, I’d be happy to present to your group’s interests and/or in a home party atmosphere.
Taking Better Photographs
One of the quickest ways to learn how to take better photographs is to have an honest critique of your images. It can also be a lot of fun to get a group together for an entertaining and educational evening where everyone learns from each other’s critique.
My training as a professional photography adjudicator has helped fast-track numerous photographers. In addition to providing photography critiques to individuals of all skill levels, I’ve had the pleasure to share my experience with numerous camera clubs and professional groups internationally, including almost a decade at one of the world’s largest photography competitions held annually in Las Vegas (WPPI).
Whether it be a short one-on-one critique or an evening party with your friends and/or family, I can assure this will elevate the photographs you take.

Local Vancouver Island & International Tours
