Welcome to JHC Photo Blog

Welcome to John Hugh Craig's (jhcphoto.ca) Blog. This is my first entry of what I hope will be many more to come.  As a first entry, I thought I would give you a bit of my background and an idea of what is to come in the future blogs.

I grew up in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada and have lived here all my life. I have travelled across Canada, coast to coast, visited many of the states in the U.S and have also visited some areas of Europe. My passion for photography started early in my life.  As a teen I use to develop my own photographs in my parents' basement.  

I attended schools locally in the Ottawa area and graduated with a bachelor of engineering from Carleton University.  I worked for several local high tech companies for many years.  

A few years ago I became very ill with liver disease, the cause of which they never determined as I did not drink to excess, smoke, use drugs nor was I overweight.  I was given one year to live.  I was fortunate to find a liver donor at the six month mark.  This individual saved my live by donating a part of their liver to me through a live liver transplant. 

Unable to continue my high stress job, as the doctors believe that stress was a major contributor to the liver failure, I decided to renew my passion for photography.  I have been spending time outdoors capturing wildlife in their natural environment and taking shots of different landscapes that capture my interest.
