Published Work - Canada Post Stamp

Terra Nova National Park, Newfoundland

 When I was 8 years old I collected rocks, bugs, snakes, tadpoles, coins, stamps and also brought home the occasional stray dog.  Nowadays I don’t have any of those “hobbies”  but I guess I still do collect things. I have a huge collection of photographs from my travels around the world, of cities, landscapes and wildlife. I guess I still am that little boy at heart.

When I was 8,  I never dreamed that I would become a photographer let alone that I picture I would take would become a Canadian Postage stamp.  This stamp commemorating the 50th anniversary of Terra Nova National Park in Newfoundland is 2nd of my pictures to be used by Canada Post on a stamp.

Do you like collecting photos?  Well, to help you improve your collection, my friend Younes Bounhar and I have teamed up to conduct a couple of photography workshops in Ottawa this summer. Please visit our workshop page to learn more.

    I’ll bet when you were 38 you never thought you would see the day that your photo had the same monetary value as a postage stamp? :>)

    At least we now know you’ll be sticking around for a few more years, Garry.

    Congrats, mon ami.

    Congrats, Garry! Lovely photo. You’ve captured a combination of ruggedness and serenity in the same view.

    I was also a philatelist in my youth (still seem to collect a lot of stuff …), so this has an extra special meaning to me, too. Good going.
