Developing an interest in photography as a young boy, Wade purchased his first SLR camera in 1980 and began to experiment. It was only after a major career change in 2009 that he made a determined effort to study and learn the art of photography. Over that past five years Wade has developed into a photographer of many stripes – from portrait to commercial. However time spent hiking and travelling have provided him with the most pleasurable moments for photography. Capturing creation in its natural beauty brings personal satisfaction and excitement. Whether its travelling overseas to places like India and Guatemala, or hiking in the Canadian Shield to see the natural beauty of our country – all bring opportunity for photography.
