Contact 2016 this year is going to be an exciting time. Once again, the city Toronto will be the “focus” of photography as Contact celebrates its 20th anniversary.

So happy to be participating in the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival in Toronto.

Mark April 30th in your calendars & please drop by from 5-9pm to visit our show opening. We will be exhibiting new work at the cozy Cobalt Gallery on Kingston Road in the upper Beaches. Until May 31, 2016.

The Art of Junk is our contribution to Contact 2016 – the world’s largest photography event, now celebrating its 20th consecutive year.

Fujifilm Canada
2016 is shaping up to be another terrific year of collaboration with Fujifilm Canada. Their continued support and interest is most appreciated.
Of course this relationship with Fuji is based solely on their fine product line, which I simply cannot find enough wonderful things to say about it.

And what a great start to 2016:
New cameras, (FUJIFILM X-Pro2with 24.3MP X-Trans CMOS III APS-C sensor/FUJIFILM X-E2S/FUJIFILM X-A2) new lenses (FUJINON XF100-400mmF4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR) and new firmware updates which for me are a real highlight and supports my belief that existing Fuji X photographers will continue to be supported.

Through Fuji, so far this year I have an image on a desktop calendar, another on the World Wide Fuji X photographer book and a full-page ad (with an image of yours truly) in two photo magazines. Soon, some of my images will be used in a sample print book to be distributed to Fuji dealers.
