John has been photographing his surroundings since his early teens. His first camera was a Kodak 126 that served him well until the purchase of a Praktika LB at age 15. Originally from Fredericton, New Brunswick, armed with his trusty Praktika, John moved to Toronto in 1978 to study Photography at Ryerson. Returning to the retail business field John traded up to a Canon AE1 to continue exploring his surroundings and experiences while working on corporate brochures and reports. John has exhibited at Sunbury Shores Arts and Nature Centre in St. Andrews, New Brunswick and during the CONTACT Festival in Toronto. He regularly hosts shows and sales in Toronto and participates in local Arts and Crafts Shows. In 2005 John switched to digital with a Canon EOS 5D and he continues to explore his surroundings and experiences in nature, his home city of Toronto, and travels when possible.
John has two presentations available based on his experiences –
- Selling Your Stuff – Selling Yourself – helpful hints and reminders for artists and crafters looking to sell their products
- Meanwhile, in another part of the fen…… Our quest for wild orchids and what we discovered along the way. (Coming Soon! Spring 2014 – May 7 and 8 at the Textile Museum of Canada)
