About me:

My name is Glen, and I reside on beautiful Fogo Island, off the northeast coast of Newfoundland. I am an avid nature/landscape photographer, and collector of vintage/antique cameras. I enjoy shooting with a wide assortment of film gear, as well as with my four Sony Alpha-series DSLRs. (A200, A500, A550, SLT-A57)

My other interests include charity work, (namely helping orphaned children in Africa) motorcycling, (own a 2014 Honda CB500FA sportbike and 2014 Yamaha V-Star Custom cruiser) hiking, reading and music. I also enjoy collecting wristwatches.

I was forced into early retirement back in 2004 after suffering a permanent spine injury in the workplace. To this day my spinal issues keep me flat on my back for about 20 hours/day... but I have over the years learned the importance of making the very most of those few precious "good" hours each day in which I am actually mobile!

  • Replied in Other Hobbies
    A favourite pastime for me is reading. I have an extensive library of some 5,000 volumes. Another passion is motorcycles. Even though I suffer from a permanent spinal injury, I recently returned ...
  • I suggest that you check out the new Tab S3, rather than the dated S2; it's a much better tablet. Glen www.FocusOnNewfoundland.com
  • Acrill, I too have the original Tab S 8.4, and as happy as I have been with it, the new Tab S3 is worlds better in so many ways, and of course there is still that unbeatable AMOLED screen. For ...
