About me

I am an amateur photographer living in North Vancouver with my significant other. I believe in preserving the originality of a shot rather than photoshoping the heck out of it. So many shots that win contests are so unbelievably digitized that they no longer resemble a real photo anymore. I don't think this is what some of the great photographers had in mind.

I believe a great shot consists of a percentage of opportunity and the rest creativity, the equipment(right equipment) helps but is not as important as opportunity and creativity.

I hope you enjoy my images, there will be more forthcoming as I am planning to change my membership status on this site soon.

Of course my images are available for prints...




Thank you - Eye Contact Photography -North Vancouver,BC,Canada

    Hey Michael,
    thank you for commenting my latest pic...
    --> the "Lion's Castle" (tysk: Löwenburg), (350 m above sea level. NN), is lokated in the southern part of "Mountain Park - Wilhelmshöhe" and thus the visual axis lock Monument-Hercules and City Kassel.
    It was built to plans by Heinrich Christoph Jussow in the period from 1793 to 1800. The lion's castle is an imitation of a medieval English castle, and was romantic historicist deliberately built as an part decaying ruin.
    For more information about this location

    Thanks you for your comment. This is the bridge to Quebec City. There is a partial picture of it earlier in my portforlio; I had to go back and take a picture of the whole thing.

    Michael,
    I see you know Toronto well. Thanks again.

    PS For future consideration: When you post a comment on a picture you need to select the post a comment button and not the QM button. Then your comment gets put under the picture. For now I've copied all your comments under my picture.
