You are one of the best! I like your style and creativity. Àll (and I mean: all) photos have a high standard. Excellent! I come back!
creative and inspiring work...which is the perfect medicine when i run out of ideas :))
It's been a long time since my last guestbook entry. I was--and probably still am--fresh behind the ears. I still don't know quite exactly what I'm doing. But I love your work. You are a big influence. I wish you the best in the coming year. Thanks for being so approachable and accommodating. I love your stuff. -Brent
Lawrence Ripsher suggested me to come and browse your photographs. He is right, your language and mine have a lot in common. I really enjoyed looking at your photographs. Pushing the boundaries is a fantastic attitude.
would love to have your work at One Eyeland
Its a comunity for creative photographers

Thanks Kent Budge

I think that you are a wonderful artist!
I have been distracted the last year and a half and haven't had time to pursue my photography. When I came back here to pBase, I find that you are still one of the best and most creative photographers here. Not trying to make your head big, but your photographs are absolutely awesome. I love your style and vision. Your photos always inspire me.

Excellent galleries, and publications, is great to see your galleries
WOW! I simply don't know what else to say. I'm still learning and you with your gallery have taught me a lot. Thank you and take of you and yours.
Thank you for your nice comment to my pic.
Craig, your galleries are an education for someone that gets caught up with the technology side of photography, proof that you don't need to spend thousands to produce stunning and imaginative photographs, brilliant
Thanks for sharing such great talent with us. You are a real source of inspiration!
Great stuff - I can't imagine how I missed these galleries until now but have added them to my faves for many more looks.
Craig, did you know that I (Lito)have a lot of comments on Rod ostoski-space shuttle sts1 but it was deleted from yesterday July 11, 2006. I believe he couldn't take the critique I layed out for him so he deleted my comments.

Love your pictures, each of them is wonderful, they are simple , but clever and I like your style - make every picture very clear cut, but very impressive. Will come back for more.
Love your perspective and vision! You truly made the mundane look different and exciting!
Fantastic stuff in your galleries and I particularly like the processing techiniques applied to a number of the images ... transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary. Thanks for the recent compliment on one of my recent PaD images; I'm flattered you took the time to stop by and comment. :) Cheers
Hi Craig, Another Canadian! yay! Lived near Mt. Royal as a kid. Thank you for your comment on my site. Your shots inspire me to keep trying with digital. Long row to hoe!
What I love most with your shots is the visual economy. Such a thin line betweeen too much or not enough, and you hit it perfectly, on spot. Es
Bonjour Craig, I want to thank you for your comment for "Ombrages dans le sous-bois, I appreciate it a lot.
Thank you very much for your comment for "Ruelle", I appreciate it a lot.
One day, I will reach your level. Your pictures possesses a mysteriously motivating aura. But for now, I just need to figure out how to use this stupid Photoshop.
Near masterful work. It really caught my eye.
I want to thank you for your comment for "Windy", Craig. I saw the high quality pictures you are doing, I am happy you like my picture!
I don't think I can add anything substantive to what people have said about all your galleries before. They are beautiful and evocative. Thanks for sharing your visions. You're in my favs and so I look forward to seeing more!
I enjoy visiting your galleries. Thank you for your visits and comments to my site. I am happy to share this wonderful experience with someone who also enjoys photography.
Craig... I'm sending over a great big thank you! Thank you man! I see you enjoy b/w... and of course that means I feel obliged to con you into using film now :)))

Hello Craig, thank you for dropping by my gallery.
Hi Craig, i know i should have been here before...but better late than never :-)
Stunning galleries, added to favorites now, so will be back often :-)
ps. thanks for the comments over in my little space, much appreciated.
Thank you for the opportunity to rediscover your galleries. Certainly, I'd been here before, but every time it's a completely different experience. Looking at your galleries and images it's hard to believe, that you've been practicing photography less than a year. You've got some incredible talent. Thanks for sharing!
Hi Craig, I really enjoyed your galleries and your conceptual work. Thanks for visiting frequently my galleries, and for your comments. Cheers.
You're a friend and inspiration Craig, can't believe I'd not signed your book before! Thanks for your tips and encouragement. Your work and unique processing are exponentially fantastic!
Thank you Craig!

Very interesting . And inspiring
Craig, thank you for your generous comments on my current galleries. You and Todd Thorpe have helped me to learn to look at Bakersfield with new eyes. Most of my Saturn shots are being taken while driving with one hand so the results are hit and miss.
Thank you Craig!
Thanks for comments on my galleries ^__^
Stumbled upon this site and your work the other night. Fun site. Just wanted to drop you a quick note to tell you how impressed I am with your work. I gotta ask... What do you do for a living? I'm just finding it hard to believe that someone can pick up a camera in '05 and start kicking out work of that caliber. Really impressive! I spent 15+ years as an advertising photographer, so I've seen a LOT of work in my time. If you're just starting out, then I have to say you have one of the best natural eyes I've ever seen. Keep shooting... I'm enjoying it!
Hi, Craig. I'm so glad to hear that one of your photographic influences is Stanley Kubrick. I love his central compositions, and many times I try to emulate his style. One of my favorite directors, Darren Aronofsky, who undoubtably was influenced by Kubrick, consistently places his subjects dead center. When I thought about that type of composition, it kind of makes sense. When you look at things in the world, you usually stare at them straight on, with background images and motions happening beside the main attraction. Anyway, I just watched A CLOCKWORK ORANGE yesterday and I had this theory in my mind. I'm glad I could flood your guestbook with it. Great shots, and I like your theory about simplicity and representing your subject's main form and function with the use of photography.
Craig... your work is truely stunning... i love the minimalistic shots... stuff i like to try myself...! Conceptually and graphically beautiful...! Thanks for your comments in my galleries too...!
Thanks for your comments on
I really enjoyed your PAD as well very well done. I hope some day to get where you are...
I like your style. Inspiring.
Craig, I like your galleries. Very nice different subject matter.

There is much I can learn from your eyes, so you're in my list of favourites.
All the best.

Thanks for visiting my PAD, something that I just got started and every single comment is truly appreciated. You've such an amazing collection of fine pics - Thanks for sharing and giving me a true learning experience!
WOW!!!! Your shots are great! I like your galleries so much. :)
Wow!, I'm really impressed by your work, and I've seen a lot of photog. I didn't know the kid had it in him. It has me sitting here thinking...hey, where's my camera?
Your synthesis is admirable and able to open the closed mind...like mine for instant. LOL
Thank you for your comment Craig. So many beautiful photos in your galleries. I will take a time to look deeply into your galleries.
fantastic galleries Craig. Wonderful use of the little SD300, good variety and a great eye for color, shape, form etc.
Hi Craig. Great, great galleries that continually interest and inspire. Amazes me how you consistently manage to reduce the complex world we live in down to such clean, simple and compelling images.
Craig, many thanks for your comments in my PAD gallery.
I envy your creative style and orginality. Welcome to my favorite artists list. Keep shooting and sharing with us...I for one am watching attentively.
I love your style. You have a great eye for miminalism and details. Lovely colors! And thanks for your comments on my Photo a day 4 jan!
Antonio Pierre De Almeida
Thank you ! I never took the time necessary to decently browse all your pictures. On the other hand you took the time necessary to browse some of mine and took the time to leave your comments and I wish to THANK YOU. You have a great eye. Since you live in Montreal maybe sooner or later we will meet and maybe dicuss about this common passion. By the way I would like to wish you a happy new year too. Antonio
Craig, Thanks for your kind comments on my galleries.
Best wishes for you and a very happy new year!
Craig - thanks a lot for the "bunch" of your kindly comments in 2005 on my pictures. I wish you and your family peaceful days and a vibrant 2006!
I just love your way of seeing, like the japanise tradition of simplicity and minimalism that is in the same time comlex (because it actualy holds much). Of course you in my fav. Cheers.
Craig, thank you very much for your kind words. Your images are concise and poetic. I like them very much.
Wow! Fantastic gallery. I'm glad you stopped by mine which gave me a chance to discover your great work. Adding you to my favorites immediately!
I just discovered your galleries and I must admit that I love your "conceptual minimalism". You really have a different point of view. It is inspiring.
Steve H tells me to look you up because your "stuff is just going from strength to strength at the moment". By George (not B) he is right. I am awed by your work. I shall be a frequent guest.

Nice work..Interesting perspective of our city..I like it..You did a lot of foot work to achieve a lot of great photos..bravo..
Hi, I'm a highschool Art student in Flordia, and I love your work, I'm playing around with photography and focusing on how culture influences art and the artist. If it wouldn't be too much trouble I would love to hear about your travels and what influences you so I could incorporate your work into my Art Book and learn more! My E-mail is HMSewall@yahoo.com, thank you, and again, you do fabulous work.
Thanks for stopping by my Galleries. I thoroughly enjoy coming here to see what you are up to. I hope you enjoy a long relationship with light. She will never let you down :-)
What a wonderfully rich portfolio of work. So glad I came across it. Will be back to take a longer tour.
