Aaron's ardent beginning in photography occurred upon receiving his father's camera. With only manual controls and intuition to guide him, he learned to see and ultimately craft fine photographs.  Growing up in the Alberta countryside, Aaron had, from the beginning, a keen awareness for the subtle beauty and diversity of the landscape surrounding him. Photography seemed like the natural form of expression - a medium that could combine the displays of nature with his own artistic vision of the landscape and the meaning found therein.  Whether he is working in colour or black and white, the goal remains the same: effectively communicate a unique sense of place and space in what is often overlooked or seen as familiar.

Aaron currently uses a large format film camera to faithfully capture and reproduce the finest details of the landscape. For macro work he uses a medium format camera with a reverse mount lens for its ability to maneuver in tight spaces at high magnifications. The film is then scanned on a state of the art Imacon virtual drum scanner and meticulously inspected.
