Welcome to On The Wildside Photographic Art


On The WildSide Photographic Art was born from a love of all things to do with Wildlife and Nature.  I have decided to begin a blog about the pictures that I take using this name and share it with anyone who is interested in photographing wildlife and nature, especially those rare and endangered species that are native to Manitoba.  I began my journey as a photographer in early 2007, while working for a company that had me travelling the prairies and provided me with a point and shoot camera for work.  I started by taking photos of old building along the way to my destination, and soon found that I wanted much more than a point and shoot camera could offer me.  I purchased my first DSLR camera later that year, an Olympus entry level body and a couple of lenses.  Since then I have switched to a Nikon Full Frame camera with better quality lenses and continue to improve upon my skills as both photographer and learning all about the subjects that I choose to photograph.


As one who has not blogged for a few years, I have decided it is time to get back in the saddle again and will share a new blog at least once per month.  As I have grown in my photography skills, with newer and better equipment, I wish to share these with you and hope that you enjoy my work.  I will also share my blogs to social media, so that everyone will have an opportunity to enjoy my work.
