I have, since around 2008, worked as a professional photographer. It started out as a hobby, much like genealogy, before blossoming into something bigger.
I have been taking pictures since childhood but really became interested in photography in 1991, when I received my first SLR camera. Since then, except for a short hiatus of a couple of years, I have always had a camera close-at-hand.
My trade is mostly self-taught. My experience has been gained through trial-and-error, experimentation, self-study, and by observing and questioning the works of other photographers.
I sometimes experiment with different genres but prefer to specialize rather than generalize. Initially, I preferred sports-action and dance. Lately, I have moved to minimalist landscape and fine art. I also enjoy doing documentary work. I am not a studio photographer: I'd rather capture a moment than create one.
Further information about my photography, including a complete artistic CV, portfolio galleries, and a list of limited edition fine art prints, can be found on my professional website at www.macdonald-photography.com.

I have self-published one photo book from an ongoing personal project titled "Aboard the Irish Lass: Lobster Fishing in the Maritimes".
I have provided photographic services for a number of local, regional and national clients. My work has appeared in both print and digital formats.
