Wings of Paradise
My interest in butterflies dates back to my final year (95) in the Ryerson U Photo Arts degree programme. Someone supplied some specimens of butterfly wings and I photographed them in the studio with a 4x5 View Camera and a macro lens.
My student show contained a dozen 20x 24 images most of which you see on the website. From there I visited the amazing Butterfly Conservatory in Niagara Falls with 35mm equipment and telephoto lenses. I returned every year, usually with private students on a workshop, to photograph these most wonderful of all creatures in their man-made tropical rainforest.
