    Walter is a fabulous photographer. His subjects feel at ease with him and the result is great photography! Walter looks for the unique angles not the obvious.

    During the 15 years I have known Walter - when he was working at the Edmonton Sun and later for the Edmonton Journal - he always impressed me with his "hunger" for the perfect breaking news photo. And he usually got just the right photo, images that combined the immediacy of the event with good photographic "polish." Making it even better, he was pleasant and easy to work with.
