As a photographer and mixed media artist, Bob has exhibited from coast to coast in Canada, as well as internationally, and authored two books featuring his images.

He is one of the few photographers invited to be a member of the Alberta Society of Artists. Bob is also an award-winning radio and television host and producer (CBC, CTV and CKUA).
