I was 8 years old when my mother first let me take a photo with her bulky Polaroid instant camera.
Even though it was 1979, I can still remember the feeling, the weight, and the joy of being able to capture real, genuine moments.
It wasn’t long after that my appreciation turned into a passion, and that passion led me to a career.
Having studied Journalism at Humber College in the 90s, I decided to merge my two interests of photography and journalism, and dive into the diverse and wonderful world of photo-journalism.
It’s been many years since those initial days, but that same journalistic tendency to genuinely appreciate that around me and to find ways of capturing it organically has stuck with me ever since.
Flash forward to today, and I now find myself shooting everything from beauty to commercial and everything in between.
The one thing that hasn’t changed is my love for capturing things as they actually happen.
It’s why I pride myself so much on not just taking great pictures, but on creating great environments to have a really memorable shoot.
Because when clients look back at my pictures, I don’t just want them to see joy, I want them to remember it.
