I was acting curator of Invertebrate Zoology at the Royal Alberta Museum until I retired in 2006. My main job was to run "The Bug Room", a live insect gallery, but I spent much of my time working on the museum's web site (Arthropods only) and identifying bugs for the public.
I started photographing insects for the museum in 1999, and started doing it personally in the spring of 2005. My camera at the present time is a Canon powershot SX1 IS.
