Dutkowski Studios operated in the Richmond/Vancouver area for many years,

Don took time out from his photographic career to become a proficient
winemaker and taster. Indeed so much so that he was employed as a
writer on the subject for Western Living Magazine. He also wrote and
published a Canadian "best seller" in technical books. The title was
"Canadian Winemakers Guide". For this, and other contributions to the wine
industry, in 1979, he was Knighted by The California Assemblage of The
Universal Order of the Knights of the Vine.
Feeling a lack of "completeness in his life" Don enrolled in The Gospel
Ministry Institute at Monticello Georgia were he earned a ThB., a D.D., and
a Certificate of Competence in Pastoral Counseling. His studies and
accomplishments satisfied his longing for academia. At this time Don felt no
need to utilize his new credentials. There was ~ "no calling" .
Don and his wife moved to Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada were he opened
Dutkowski Studios. The photographic career flourished, but after over ten years,
boredom finally set in.
He began an all new career, this time using the internet, as a Research Consultant
with "Thinktank 2000". "Finding the Answers to the Cause And Effects of World,
International. And National Events". His fields of expertise being Religions,
Cults, and Secret Societies ! After a few months it became clear that the many
questions being asked were of a theological nature, and showed signs that the
person asking the questions was in mental distress. Don abandoned
Thinktank 2000 and began a new web based location called Hope-Eternal.Com.
Don is still answering questions about Religions, Cults, and Secret Societies
but is now able to allow the inquirer to ask more questions, and to go deeper
in to the problem if one exists. Don is now able to help the inquirer solve
the problem, or at least redirect the inquirer to someone who can.
By June of the year 2000 the web site http://www.toughlove.faithweb.com developed
in to a world wide ministry. Inquirers, and "the hurting" from across Canada,
the U.S.A., England, Israel, Poland, Australia, New Zealand, Denmark, Egypt,

with a myriad of inquiries.
