Jon has been making images for over 50 years both as an amateur and semi-professional photographer.
I have long been fascinated by the juxtaposition of man-made and natural elements in a landscape, especially where the man-made has become an almost integral part of the natural landscape or where it is being reclaimed by nature. This fascination has several expressions: natural, rural or farm and urban landscapes, all forms of agriculture and horticulture, and wildflowers, birds and animals. I also have a keen interest in macro photography, such as insects and droplets of water. Of course, I am never averse to capturing anything that looks interesting.
My blog, "A Photographer's Notebook", is primarily intended to share some thoughts about my images and how I create them or offer some thoughts about doing photography in the digital age.
The blog is not intended to be a daily blog or even a regular blog, rather new entries will only be posted as an image or technique catches my attention. If you are interested in following the blog, you can sign up on any blog page. Once signed up, you will receive new posts in your inbox. I will not share your e-mail address with any third party. If you change your mind, it is just as easy to unsubscribe.
Some of the blog entries were originally published in the Edmonton Horticultural Society's magazine, Gardener's Gate.
