Throughout my photographic career, I have had many mentors, among photographers: Ruth Bernhard, & John Sexton whose workshop I attended in 1995 and in 2001 and R. Mac Holbert of The Image Collective, Ashland, Oregon. In 2004, I attended a workshop under Mac when he was still the principle owner of Nash Editions, Manhattan Beach, California. More recently within the arena of digital capture, my photographic career has taken another step. I have entered into the author’s world with my first published non-fiction book: “Sea Winter Salmon: Chronicles of the St. John River”. I felt the need to revive this story about our family’s fishing camp in Eastern Canada and re-assemble it to uncover generations of dust. This proved to be a daunting journey during which a fervent archivist in the person of Eileen McCormack. Together, we weave a story which is sometimes dramatic, occasionally tragic, often amusing and, at other times, informative with regard to the challenges of this remote and delicate region. This book addresses itself to historians, biographers, conservation biologists and no less, to fisher women and men everywhere.
