ABOUT ME

Entering the world of Photography 22 years ago, I have worked an honed my skills as a Photojournalist and Sports Photographer. My first professional contract took me across this beautiful country shooting the Canadian Superbike Series. Travelling coast to coast, I was immersed in a world of high speed & spectacular action where I learned the exciting trade of  Sports Photography and  in some of the most challenging shooting conditions imaginable. The result?... I was hooked. And soon determined to grow and develop my skills in the art of photography. 

While continuing with a photo-journalistic approach, I  began to study and learn the art of landscape photography. It was a personal challenge but I loved that it forced me to really look at things not just see them. To take an every day view but find a way to make it spectacular! This new pursuit pushed me to uncover dynamic and unique  perspectives. Whether it was from creative angles, various shutter speeds, light painting or general composition. As my skills developed, so did my desire to shoot beyond the expectations of my clients.

Today I enjoy many adventures  jet-set and snap-happy, from the dirt grounds in the center of my hometown rodeo arena, to the peaks of Aspen at the Winter XGames. Whether I'm climbing pyramids in Caracol or shooting the perfect cup of latte for a Coffee Bar, I will continue to strive to uniquely and creatively capture people, places and moments. 

 

With 7 National Accreditations under my belt and several award-winning photographs now in circulation, I invite you to enjoy the world as I see it.
