Ink. Permanency. Irreversibility. Thinking before you create or the alternative: letting mistakes become a part of the process. Ink represents life to me. I feel there is great beauty in experiencing what exists now, accepting what is already drying on the paper and discovering what is about to be created. For me, ink means I'd rather live a life of "oh wells" than "what ifs".

I feel the same way about my job as a sports photographer. The truth is, when you shoot fast sports like I do...hockey, speed skating, bobsledders I don't care how good you are or how great your equipment is...this is what you get: crap crap crap crap GEM crap crap crap crap. And isn't that how anything worth doing always is? You're going to screw up 90% of the time. But it's worth it, for that one great shot.

Have a Sense of Humour

"You have to have a sense of humour to be a sports photographer. Really. Because crazy things happen and athletes make the goofiest expressions. They also chew gum, munch nonstop on their mouth guards, squint, drool, spit, breathe with their mouths wide open, fiddle with their gloves and chin straps, unzip their hockey shorts all the way to the crotch, and yes, cover up their faces with their hockey sticks. Photographing a professional hockey team is like being married to thirty different men who all leave the toilet seat up and a bunch of beard stubble in your sink."

Thank you!

Due to Winter Sports Season, October - April, and the demands of my career during this time, I may not be able to answer each comment, favourite, or watch directly. Right now I am particularly busy as I'm in the middle of hockey playoffs and a very deep horse racing season. Please know that I value your support and friendship very much and want to thank you in advance as a result. I do read every comment and try to reply when I can, but cannot guarantee it during the season. If something requires my immediate attention please leave me a note, and I will be more likely to see it. Thanks so much!!
