A childhood of exploration and adventure in the woodlands of southeast New Brunswick
initiated my passion for the outdoors.As my friends interests changed I had to decide whether
to go into nature solo or not at all. Initially the fear of unknown sounds and the anxiety of being lost were challenges I was able to overcome. Gradually nature became my friend and mentor, a sanctuary of beauty and harmony.
The introduction of a point and shoot camera on my hikes resulted in photographs that reflected what I was experiencing. My mother was a water-colour artist and her influence encouraged me to approach photography as an art form.
I live with my wife Marilyn in the seaside village of Pugwash in northern Nova Scotia.
We operate "Horton Gallery" in our century old Victorian home.
