After completing my professional training, I managed various sports and leisure centres that included swimming pools, multisports arenas, outdoor training and competition facilities.
From the late 80s I was based in France covering sport and providing management services to corporate sponsors and major event venues, including World Championships.
Using the experience from shooting several Olympic Games I worked for VANOC as a media manager at Whistler Olympic Park during the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics. 2011 saw me back in the thick of the world of sports working as Deputy Photo Manager for the 2012 Summer Games in London with Bob Martin, formerly of Sports Illustrated. I was then appointed as the Photo Services Manager for the 2015 Pan American Games in Toronto.
In 2017 to 2018 I was now based in San Juan Cosala on the shores of Lake Chapala, Mexico, shooting wildlife, nature, and sports.
2019 saw a return to Canada, now living in Nova Scotia where I continue to shoot nature and wildlife and give a series of workshops and field trips to help other improve their photographic skills.
My wife Jean is a sports journalist and magazine editor, specializing in equestrian subjects. She is editor of Breeding News for Sport Horses, a magazine dedicated to the breeding of horses for the Olympic disciplines. You can also follow Jean’s blog about our life here in Mexico
