About Me

John C Whittall

My wife, Anne, and I both have BSc's in Zoology from UBC so we have been very interested in wildlife for many years.  We both worked at the Vancouver Public Aquarium and I continued on as a Police Constable and then a Fire Fighter.  After retiring I began photographing garden flowers and then branched out to exotic bugs and anything I could find in the local area.  I started with a very good digital Olympus 750 ultra zoom, then progressed to a Canon 7D digital SLR.  With the SLR I can have multiple lenses to get in close or shoot those long shots.  I print all my photographs at home on an Epson Stylus Pro 4900 17" printer.  My note cards are cut and folded by hand.    I live in West Kelowna, B.C. with Anne and our three German Shepherds, Bee,Solo and Rose.
