Yes, although the Restaurant was Uncle John's or some such thing at that time. I am now working on a new Avatar Pic.

No, Everyone is meeting at 8:00 am at McKee House (Seniors Rec Centre) and then depending on how many people they as a group will decide how many cars to take and share. If some people need to come back early and so on they can form their own groups.

People should share gasoline costs.

Perhaps you could come to a meeting before then to meet people on this or next Wednesday evening. No costs for guests.

About Me
I started doing photography in grade eight when three of us (Arne Hermann, Andrew Kuprat and Myself) started a Photography Club at school. We convinced our science teacher Mr. Wong Moon to donate a small storage room to us that had a sink in it. It was perfect to get a darkroom setup. We pooled some money and acquired some supplies. When the teachers in charge of putting together the School Annual found out about the club, they asked for our help. We ran the club all three years we were there from grade eight to grade ten.

In Senior High School they actually offered a Photography Course. Even better, they offered a Special Double Block Photography Course. Everyone involved in that course helped out with the School Annual. We also had free access to the schools excellent Dark Room which had Beseler 23c’s in it. Our photography teacher Dietmar Waber, was one of the best teachers I ever had in my life. He influenced me and he is the one that encouraged me to help others. He noticed I got bored very easily and always challenged me and got me involved with teaching others. I owe a lot to him.

While in High School I ended up doing sports photography for some of the local papers including the Richmond Review, the Vancouver Sun and the Province. I even worked with Province Photographer Gary Karmann who still works for the paper today.

Once out of school I did fashion work and moved on to Nature and Landscape photography. I did some work for the Western Canada Wilderness Committee where I helped put together a Slide Presentation that was shown across Canada and Shown in the House of Commons in Ottawa. I worked for Minolta Canada during Expo 1986 in Vancouver and stopped doing photography shortly after that.

I have a Graphic Arts background. I have since owned my own computer company and I am just now getting back into photography to relax and to create art. I have recently gotten involved in Bird Photography and more recently involved in helping birds out through different groups and associations.
