Hi, and welcome to my profile page. Over 151,000 photostream views since joining flickr, thanks!

*Please Note* All my photos are © copyright and for my use alone unless licensed otherwise. If you have an interest in my images for any purpose (including blogging) please DO contact me to discuss possible usage.
I am a Musician/Producer/Engineer who enjoys photography as an additional creative pursuit. I've held an interest in music and photography since I was 4 or 5 years old. My passion for creative photography was rekindled 2 years ago when I bought a used Canon 10D and became a part of flickr. Most of the shots in my stream were taken with that 10D, but I did upgrade to a Canon 5D in December of '07.
my photos sorted by flickr's 'interestingness' algorithm.
I often don't write descriptions for my photos, but I do add tags that give information about the shot. If you're looking at one of my shots and you want to know more about the image please check out the tags.
I have a couple other flickr sites for live music events I've worked at.
See my Vancouver International Jazz Festival photos here...
and my Subdued Stringband Jamboree photos here...
Thanks to luluandlisa for getting me the flickr pro account!
Here's a handy monitor calibration scale. Ideally one should be able to distinguish each shade value.
Check out a couple groups I got started..

"I first met Marc in the early 90's. I've always known him as an incredibly talented person overall, great musician and an audio engineer with a sharp and unique set of ears. I recently discovered he's started to take pictures and sure enough he's got an amazing eye too! I am flabbergasted by his shots. How did he get so good so fast!? To top that off he's a real cool guy as well. Ah, some people are blessed with so much talent...actually come to think of it, he kind sucks at poker! Actually last time I played with him was a while ago so he might have turned pro since! ;~D"

"When I first came to flickr, Marc was one the first to consistently notice and comment on my photos, which I deeply appreciate and take encouragement from. He has been kind, generous and helpful, always taking the time to answer my questions, and offers keen advice which I am grateful to receive! As for his talents behind the camera, just take a look at his photostream. I am always astonished at his range of interests, styles and subjects. He moves easily from his wonderful abstracts to human interest, nature, and all stops in between! And he justs keeps getting better and better! Keep an eye on Explore, because you are sure to find him there. I wish him all the best."

"Marc has a vision of the world that is beautiful, unique, and honest, as demonstrated by his set of photos that were "On (and off) Explore." His works inspires mine daily and already I have grown as an artist through the subtle influence of his talent..."
