Photography provided Pat a way of making a living and following a peripatetic lifestyle since his early 20s. That lifestyle continues. However, since our complete transition into video in 2001, we no longer actively work our slide files. We still have images in several photo agencies.

For many years, we were contributing editors with Equinox – Canada’s Magazine of Discovery. Pat’s image of a Kirghiz elder from the Xingjiang Autonomous Region in western China graced the cover of the charter issue in 1982. Sadly, the magazine suffered its demise in the late 90s.

Between us, we have won eight national magazine awards. Pat was a co-founder of First Light Associated Photographers, Canada’s premiere stock photography agency.
