I began in Montréal in 1970 as a medical photographer, a field I worked in for five years. Then I moved into commercial audio-visual production for another five years. From 1980-'86 I ran my own multimedia company and in 1990 I moved to Vancouver and worked another five years in photocomposition for trade shows and exhibits.
In total, I have worked as a professional photographer for over 25 years, specializing in the use of optical printers with applied motion control using stepper motors.
Today, I have revived a system that I created in 1984 and added refinements that have allowed me to produce this imagery. I combine techniques to produce a hybrid photography that uses many early optical effects.
I enjoy developing prototypes that enable me to push beyond the conventional boundaries of abstract photography using equipment I have made or modified.
