I don't shoot weddings or family vacations . I am a Canadian (Montreal) documentry photographer (since 1982) . My images are the space between . I am basically self taught some photography programs and some dark room stuff . A slight disagreement with a program director so I never entered photojournalism . I painted and did some film making for a number of years while taking a break from photography .To me photography is not about capturing what I believe to be a rare family moment and posting it on a photography website . My influences are Vivian Marier , Mary Ellen Mark and painters its Chaim Soutine (website , https://youpic.com/photographer/exit401/)
