    Hi All,

    This is a rather late intro....I mean, I've only been lurking and posting for the last year or so. Oh well, better late than never.

    My name is Craig Koshyk. I am an artist, professional photographer (commercial, fashion) and educator (I own PrairieView School of Photography www.prairieview.ca).

    I am a long time dark room addict and chronic abuser of alternative processes. That is not to say that I am anti-digi, I use bits, bytes and pixels for work everyday. For my personal work though, I just love my darkroom with its stinky chemicals, 25 year old vinyl albums and all the other great stuff with which i surround myself under the orange safe light.

    I am also a dog nut. Yes, dogs. My wife and I have three. Two Weimaraners and an Epagneul de Pont Audemer (a what?....go to http://homepage.mac.com/ckoshyk/Ponto.htm to find out about the breed and to see some of my photos)

    I am a great fan of this site, checking in almost every day. I will be taking possession of a good scanner soon so I hope to post some of my work to the gallery.

    In the meantime I will continue to lurk and occasionally post.

    Cheers!

    Craig

    Hey my cameras are registered! Are yours? Remember cameras don't shoot people, photographers do.

    Hello Craig

    My wife, son and I are owned by five Mutts. here on the Navajo reservation four would be called Pure Bred Rez Mutts, each comeing from the means streets of a town on the reservation. The fifth was sprung from the joint. This does not include the three strays we feed that show up around dinner time. Anyone want a nifty mutt?

    Nice photos. Infact your composit nude is the first composite I have seen that I liked.

    Welcome Craig: You are in the "real" Canada, I see. Gotta have dogs there. We have two, one Shetland Sheep Dog (our protector who might take a nip if you trespass uninvited. The other is a black Labrador Retriever who will give you the house keys. We live in the Maryland swamp on the Eastern Shore.
    I love the smell of fixer in the morning. It smells like...creativity!
    Truly, dr bob.

    Craig, missed you last month when you were in to the Montreal Deli - maybe next time. We are a Standard Schnauzer family here.
