    Hi there!

    I would like to get your permission to use a few of your photos featuring the Dorset Tower for the new Facebook Page of the Parks, Recreation and Trails Department of the Township of Algonquin Highlands. They are fabulous! I will be sure to allow the watermark as well as post a link to your blog in the photo description section – would be even better if I could also use your name!

    Thank you!

    Hi Ed
    I find your photos fascinating. I’m looking for permission to use some of your Port Sydney photos on my vacation rental ad.


  3. the family once had a beautiful century old 2 story log house near Rosseau.. a lot of wonderful memories from those days

  4. After owning and operating a retail business all of my adult life, I have taken up painting! I would very much appreciate using one of your Muskoka photos as a basis for a painting. I usually use my own photos or paint plein air but I don’t have a photo that I like at the moment. I never use anyone else’s photo without asking permission first and any painting I do from any photo takes on a life of its own and the photo becomes a jumping off point. I am not a professional … at least not yet! Thank you

    I had borrowed a book of Boathouses of the Muskokas, but do not know the artist etc. I made a quilt of 12 of the photos & wonder if I can find out who the artist is OR get permission to allow a Canadian Magazine to feature this Quilted Wallhanging that I’ve done. Looking fwd. to your reply. Thank you.

    Elsa, there are several books about Muskoka Boathouses. The most popular ones were by John de Visser and Judy Ross. The one I have is named @Shelter at the Shore”. These books used to be available at bookstores around the Muskoka area. You might try Amazon or eBay to see if you recognize the cover and find the publisher.

    Hi Ed,
    I would love to watercolor paint your photo of the island in the sun. I have sold my work sometimes.
    I may sell it or reproduce it on cards. What would you require for me to do this?

  8. Hi there. I am a historian Robin Burgoyne http://www.housestories.ca and I research and write the histories of peoples homes for them. I am currently researching a house in Rosedale and I believe that one of the occupants William Wallace Near, who lived in the house built Monyca. Would anyone be able to confirm that for me. Thank you so much.
