Colin was born in 1948 in London, England. He has always had an interest in the arts and while growing up he demonstrated his talent for painting and drawing. He immigrated to Canada in 1967 and worked for a number of years in a machine shop. During this time he took additional courses to improve his artistic skills. He also took courses in Photography at the Dundas Valley School of Art where he learned to process black and white film. The digital revolution had already started and he soon realized that this knowledge learned was an important step in his understanding of the conversion to digital photography.

He was a member of the Hamilton Camera Club for many years. His involvement with the HCC included a two-year term as president. As the Bellows Editor of the HCC he enjoyed creating this newsletter as a means of presenting his design ideas. He is Principle Founder of Group ThirtyOne, a Photographers Collective he helped form in May 2014.

Colin’s passion for photography along with his artistic talent and his knowledge of computers and software has allowed him to combine art forms and create inspired images. His work has been presented in Galleries in the Hamilton area. He enjoys coding and created this website using basic HTML and CSS code.

‘You cannot depend on your eyes,
when your imagination is out of focus'

Exploring the works of artists who have come before our time is a great source of inspiration for Colin. He envies the time of the British Artists of Gainsborough and Turner and the Canadian Group of Seven, Lawren Harris being a favourite.
