What is your most memorable/ or funniest moment that has happened in a previous studio Tour:
Parking to unload in front of the Heritage House in Richmond Hill last year was a bit precarious. The trees in front of the house were loaded with huge butternuts that kept raining down all around us in the wind as we moved pictures inside. We moved our cars out of "danger zone" as soon as we could. The next morning, the sidewalk was laden with fallen nuts which we had to sweep up to clear a safe way for our guests!
Can you give us 3 interesting facts about your chosen medium or the materials you use or the way in which you work:
I enjoy taking pictures of flowers almost more than anything else because they don't fly away before you can take their picture and they don't turn and walk away showing only their backside.
I enjoy taking pictures in nature because it gets me outside all the time and you never know what you're going to see next.
I always take at least two, and sometimes three, cameras with me wherever I go - you just can't have too many cameras.
